17 WEEKS




Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 17 weeks
Size of Babies: the babies are the size of onions
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Not sure. Mark took the scales and hid them from me. I was becoming a little OCD about weighing. I go back to the doctor February 8th, so I'll know then. I'm kinda scared because I have been giving in to a lot of yummy temptations!
Maternity Clothes: I alternate between maternity jeans and my regular stretchy jeans. Very thankful for bellabands! I ordered some cute dresses from Old Navy to take on our "babymoon" and they came in today! Super cute and comfy! I'm hoping they still fit when it's 75 degrees and sunny here!
Gender: We went yesterday and I have to confess, we opened the envelope. I just couldn't wait any longer, but we are both sworn to secrecy until Sat. We're going to let our moms cut the cakes. I can't wait! I am so excited, and still so thankful for this whole experience.
Movement: Nothing yet, but I can't wait!
Sleep: So far so good! However, I'm waking up around 3 a.m. every morning and it's getting harder and harder to go back to sleep.
What I Miss: energy and my coffee
Cravings: No cravings. I just have the appetite of a truck driver.
Symptoms: This week I've been experiencing lots of lower back pain. Calling my chiropractor asap!
Best Moment of the Week: Seeing our babies in 4D and finding out their gender. They are already so adorable! I can't wait to share with everyone our news. Also, we think we have our names narrowed down, but I'm not sharing that until we know for sure.


I have to brag on my husband. These arrived this afternoon. He's so sweet! We normally don't do flowers, but every now and then he surprises me.


I'll try and post pictures of our "Gender Dinner" after everyone leaves Saturday night.  Can't wait!
