17 Weeks

Don't mind the cell phone pic. My DSLR's SD card is currently on the fritz.

How far along: 17 weeks

Total weight gain: 118.6lbs, up 6lbs. Slow and steady...let's hope it says like that

Maternity Clothes: I'm really going to need to find some solid maternity pants for work. I am still wearing my Belly Band with my pants unbuttoned and unzipped but I can tell that's not going to last too much longer. Unfortunately maternity clothes designers hate long legged pregnant people so I'll have a blast trying to find pants. Leggings and dresses may be my entire work wardrobe. Dress codes are made to be broken, right?

Best moment this week: Kris getting home from France!

Movement: all the time :)

Food Cravings: hard boiled eggs. OMG are the delicious.

Sleep: I'm slowly getting back to my later sleep ways. My 9pm bedtime has been replaced with 10pm/1030pm

Milestones: baby is the size of a baked potato and will be packing on the pounds this week. All I hear is that I should indulge when I go out to one of my favorite restaurants for lunch today.

Girl or boy: gah! I have no clue now. I am dying, DYING you hear, for the anatomy scan. Come on April 30th.

Random: Braxton Hicks contractions are back (they started around 11w, which is like the earliest they appear). I never had them with Parker so this is all new to me. Maybe these fake contractions will prepare me and make my med-free delivery easier. Wishful thinking....I'm also feeling bouts of nausea, usually first thing in the morning and when I wake in the middle of the night to pee or because of Parker. Unacceptable.


  1. Warm weather is on the horizon. Dresses and leggings will have to do. Will they really say anything to a pregnant lady?! To use a line from Mean Girls, "this is the only thing that fits me right now". :)

  2. I wore a dress with leggings yesterday and I was so unbelievably comfy. I'm going to stock up on some loose dresses that I'll still be able to wear when I'm not knocked up.

    Regina, you're wearing sweatpants...it's Monday.
