17w5d continued

***for some reason blogger won't post my pic and text in the same post.. So sorry about the multiple posts!***

How far along: 17 weeks 5 days

Size of baby: Around 5 inches long and weighs about 5 ounces. *however* at my last ultrasound my dr told me thy my baby is "huge" so I'm betting it's a little more than that.

Total weight gain/loss: I lost around 8 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. As of the beginning of the week, I have gained 1.5-2 of that back depending on the scale I use. We will see at my appt tomorrow.

Maternity Clothes: A while back I bought the Target brand belly band and it is the best thing I could have purchased! Since I only have one pair of pants left that fit it allows me to wear all of my work pants and jeans still. I have bought a couple of shirts since they were on sale and one pair of maternity pants that apparently I'm not big enough for yet.

Gender: We found out at the end of the month!! I have no idea what it is and hubby is positive that it's a girl.

Movement: Argh! This has been a big source of stress for me! It seems like everyone I talk to tells me how they had been feeling their baby move for weeks by now and I'm feeling nothing. I do know that it's completely normal for me to not feel it yet but it's just something for my anxiety to grasp hold of. Hopefully my fears will be put to rest at my appointment tomorrow.

What I miss: Sleeping on my back. I never realized how much I did that until I try not to do it anymore!

Cravings: I haven't really had any yet. It seems like once I have something I want once then that's the end of it.

Symptoms: *slight tiredness
*frequent urination
*painful sex :(
*sore boobs at night
*random pains on the left side of my pelvic area

Best moment this week: Having several people tell me that I look pregnant!

What I'm looking forward to: again, feeling baby move!

Milestones: Baby is becoming capable of hearing and reacting to sounds!
