Week #17 - Baby BOY #2 Adventure

Bigger belly for sure over last week!

How far along? 17 weeks

Size of baby? A Turnip!, about 5", 5 ounces

Total Weight Gain? According to my last doc appt only 2 lbs... but I think I may be up 4 lbs now according to my home scale. Eek.

Maternity clothes? Yes! I need to buy more pants... I have nothing that fits!

Sleep? I am getting some insomnia now. Also getting a lot of body aches and pains that wake me sometimes. Not fun. I still feel pretty good most mornings. But I'm pretty worn out by the end of the day.

Best moment this week? Getting to see Ryder & Serenity together during our Vegas trip.

Food cravings? None really. Any bread or carb sounds good but no real cravings.

What I miss? Sound sleep.

What I'm looking forward to? The "big" ultrasound at the end of the month.

Milestones: FOR SURE I feel little baby boy bumping around in there a lot now. Pretty cool. Also we "may" have a name. Kasey is set on it and I'm working on falling in love with it too.

What's next?: June 30th - Ultrasound.

Emotions: Cranky. Tired. Getting Excited.

Symptoms: Shortness of breath. Wait. No breath! Yes, its that bad. Low blood sugar issues if I don't eat often and that makes me feel horrible.

From How your baby's growing:
Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — his lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and he's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. He can move his joints, and his sweat glands are starting to develop.

(This week's picture took many takes because a little booger kept jumping in the photo. Here is one funny attempt:)
