Pregnancy Update - 17 Weeks

How Far Along: 17 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I keep losing weight! I have now lost four pounds! My doctor said she's gonna watch me because I'm suppose to have gained about five... not lose!

Gender: Don't know yet, we find out July 20th! So excited!

Movement: I felt the baby last Friday for the first time! It kinda felt like popcorn popping. Then a few days ago a felt it again, this time it was like someone bumped me from the inside.... I think it was a head-butt. Also, baby seems to like chocolate milk... every time I drink some, it moves a lot. It tickles.

Baby is Big as a: Sweet Potato (5.5 inches, and 5 oz)

Sleep: Sleep has gotten a little better. I think I'm just used to the new kind of "sleep" I get. I have another confession, I LOVE my pregnancy pillow! Justin likes it too, if he gets in bed before I do, I findhim cuddling with it! Ha ha.

What I miss: Not too much... probably just having an appetite.

Cravings: Potato Chips! However, I will not cave on this one, there is like no nutritional value with potato chips, and I will not eat them... But oh, the salty goodness.
I'm really into pizza right now... love it! I make sure I have as many veggies on it as I can...

Food Aversions: Hot dogs... *shutter*
I like things like Skittles, but they give me crazy heartburn, so I guess I have an aversion to them.

Symptoms: I don't have morning sickness like I used to, but I still get really car sick.
Round ligament pain to the point it makes me nauseous.
Oh, and if I'm on my feet for a long time (like at Disney) my feet swell. That has never happened to me before (not including my surgeries...).

Best Moment this week: Feeling my sweet baby move!
