17 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 17 Weeks as of yesterday.
 (You can check out my 17 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 17 weeks: Your baby is about the size of a turnip. Your little turnip now weighs about 5 ounces and is roughly 5 inches long from head to bottom.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and found out I've gained 10 pounds so far! Yikes!

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: A sweet baby girl!! (Still working on a name.)

Movement: I've felt a few flutters here and there, but nothing regular yet. I'm hoping to feel it more often soon.

 Food Cravings: No real cravings yet.

What I miss: Being able to sleep through the night and wear my wedding rings. They are already fitting tight. :-(

Sleep: Sleeping okay, just having to get up several times a night to use the restroom.

Symptoms: Having to use the restroom often.

Best Moment this week: Hearing our baby girl's strong heartbeat at the doctor's office yesterday.

What I am looking forward to: Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday and getting to spend time with family. I'm also looking forward to our gender scan sometime in the next week or so. We already know its a girl, but I always look forward to anytime I get to see her and this will more than likely be the last time before she's born.
