17 Weeks

Funny story about this week's picture...we took a much better one yesterday.  Then I woke up in the middle of the night thinking, "I remember writing an 8, not a 7".  Sure enough, I'd written 18 weeks!  So we had to retake the pictures today instead and I'm not dressed up for church ;) 

How far along: 17 weeks (9/6/15)
Baby size: Head to heel, about 7.75 inches.  Head to rump, about 5 inches.  And 5 ounces.
Total weight gain: 7 pounds.  I haven't gained any weight since my doctor's appointment 6 weeks ago.  However, because I started higher I don't need to gain as much so my OB isn't worried. 
Maternity clothes: Mostly pants.  Shirts are still a little big, but I'll start wearing them soon since my regular shirts are getting too short.  
Stretch marks: No new ones. 
Sleep: Still sleeping 7.5 or so hours at night, but not feeling well rested.  I could nap every day! 
Best moment this week: Feeling more movement!
Miss anything? My energy ;) 
Movement: Yes!  I felt 4 strong kicks "boom, boom, boom, boom" one day, and one so hard it made my hand move!  They're few and far between though.  It seems so odd that there is a baby in my womb that's almost 8 inches long and moving constantly, yet I rarely feel it. 
Food cravings: Not really, no aversions though either.
Have you started to show yet? Yes, a little bump
Gender: Not sure yet!
Labor signs: Nope!
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Feeling more constant movement, and having Mike and Summer be able to feel the baby too!
