Week 17 Interview
How far along? 17 weeks 1 day
Baby’s size? An turnip (who eats turnips?), 5 inches long. Read more.
Days until next doc appointment? Ultrasound in August, just had a check up on Tuesday! All looks good!
Total weight gain/loss? Somewhere around 6-8 pounds.
Maternity clothes? You know it. Scored some cute maxi dresses this week!
Stretch marks? Must we keep asking? :P
Sleep: It’s good about every other night. When there’s no dogs barking, D snoring, or thunderstorms, heat waves…you get the picture. ;)
Best moment this week: Hearing baby’s super strong heart beat! We love going to our monthly check ups. This week we made lots of progress researching Bradley class, hypnobirthing, doulas, yoga class, etc.
Movement: Still little pinches and jabs occasionally. I love it.
Food cravings: Crazy for corn, more bagels. Wish more things sounded good. Usually at a loss when it comes time to eat.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Back to smells bothering me this week. And “dirty” stuff really grosses me out…like garbage.
Have you started to show yet? Yep.
Missing anything? Today, it’s sleep. And my family and friends, who I will see real soon!
Gender? Lots of girl guesses, but a couple boy votes this week. I have no idea.
Labor signs? Thankfully no.
Belly button: In tact.
Wedding rings on or off? Depends on the day.
Happy or moody most of the time? Mostly happy but when I’m moody, I’m really moody like when our air conditioner wasn’t working.
Weekly symptoms: Started feeling waves of emotion, like we can communicate more with the baby with energy and voice. Had some fatigue this week, perhaps a growth spurt happening. Less heartburn, mostly just when I lay down at night.
