17 Weeks


Let me just say that I feel very weird taking my own picture and posting it here. But I am going to try to do better documenting this pregnancy since it will be my last one.

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 17 Weeks

Size of baby: 5 ounces, Baby Lane 3.0 is about the size of a turnip.

Maternity Clothes: I can still technically fit into most of my regular clothes (and some of them I can even still button!). But maternity is just so much more comfortable, especially when trying to sit down, so I’m mostly in maternity clothes now.

Gender: Hopefully, we will find out next week. Prayers for a cooperative baby during the ultrasound would be greatly appreciated.

Movement: I’ve been feeling flutters and little kicks for the past few weeks. I can’t wait until they get stronger!

Sleep: I love it! As a matter of fact, I can’t get enough of it. I’m sleeping really well so far, but I’m having crazy dreams!

What I miss: Caffeine! I splurged the other day at lunch and had a real Coke, and it tasted so good!

Cravings: I’m craving salty stuff now, mainly chili cheese Fritos and Hot Fries. And lemonade… I could drink a gallon a day!

Symptoms: I’m feeling pretty good these days. The yuckiness of first trimester has passed, and I’m just waiting on nesting to kick in.

Best moment of the week: I loved getting to hear the baby’s heartbeat at my 16 week appointment last week. I love feeling the little movements too!


  1. You look so adorable!! But wow - seriously no caffeine? I'm one of those preggos that pushes all suggested boundaries. They say 1-2 cups a day, I have 2.5 cups... ya know, THAT kind.


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
