Update: 17 weeks

How far along? 17 weeks (even!)

Maternity clothes? Maternity clothes all the way and proud of it! :)

Symptoms: Still fatigued every now and then. Just had a lovely episode of heartburn last night and hopefully it's not a frequent symptom.

Stretch marks? Not yet and I hope they stay away!

Sleep? Sleep is getting rougher. I sleep on one side for about an hour and then I feel sore on that side, so I have to flip. This continues all night, which makes for a somewhat restless sleep. Along with the two or three trips to the bathroom.

Best moment this week? I absolutely love that our daughter loves to talk to my belly (babies). She keeps asking, "when are they going to come out?"

Movement? I swear I felt a flutter today. :)

Food Cravings? Since I can't have Subway/deli sandwiches, I'm loving my veggie sandwiches.

Gender? Not sure yet. We can't wait to find out! DH thinks two boys. I think boy/girl.

What I miss? A good night's sleep, but I think it's preparing me for when they arrive.

What I'm looking forward to? September 15th when we find out the genders!

Milestones: The nausea has seemed to pass for the most part! YAY!

Emotions: Feel okay at the moment, but I'm feeling like I need to get things ready in the nursery. Hoping not to stress too much about it yet.


  1. Yeah! Glad to hear and update. Hope sleep gets a little better and you are doing well.

  2. I swear I've commented on this twice and it hasn't taken it. Maybe it's the iPad or maybe you haven't been on. Anyway I love that your daughter talks to the cute. Also I changed my blog URL. I thought it would transfer from the old link but it doesn't appear to. Hope you are well :)

  3. So sorry, Michelle. I haven't been on much. We've been very busy lately with lots of changes. I'll make note of your new URL. Hope all is well with you!
