Bumpdate: Week 17

Size of the baby:  A turnip and fun fact, baby's heart rate is regulated by his or her brain!

Total weight gain: about 5 pounds up from my pre-pregnancy weight

Maternity clothes: Oh yes, I'm much more comfortable in maternity wear, though I can still wear several of my "normal"  clothes.  I don't like anything too tight around my tummy though.

Gender: Our appointment is next week!  We are hoping to find out at a gender reveal in early November though.  The wait is torture!

Movement: I started feeling some "flutters".  It's very hard to describe though.  No kicks or anything like that but I can feel something moving around.

Nursery:  Waiting to find out the gender and then we can start clearing out the room.

Sleep:  It takes a while to fall asleep but then I'm gravy.  I'm so bored of only sleeping on my side though.  I have a pregnancy pillow and it has been a Godsend.

What I miss:  Bending over is getting uncomfortable and some foods still don't sound appealing to me.  But I really haven't missed anything.

Cravings:  Chocolate milk.  Chicken salad.  Skittles.

Other symptoms:  Headaches.  I get them in the afternoon mostly, sometimes they are dull and sometimes they are really painful.  I get tired pretty easily too.  I went shopping for several hours with my mom and I was wiped afterward.

Best moments so far:  People are noticing my bump.  The comments are not always so nice and some are just awkward with it but I try not to let it worry me.  R and I have started looking at registry items for our little nugget which has been incredibly exciting.  Oh and we are counting down to our gender reveal but the icing will be seeing our little cutie featured on the big screen next week.
