I borrowed this cute little pregnancy summary from fellow nestie friend TobeMiller at Simply Beautiful.

How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 8 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I have several maternity shirts, three pairs of shorts, and no pants. I have been able to find larger size pants or use bella bands on my existing pants.
Stretch marks? None so far.
Sleep: I usually get up at least once a night to pee. I also had to force myself to sleep on my side, no more sleeping on my back, it's bad for the baby.
Best moment this week: my belly seems to have really popped, it still goes up and down but when it's up, it's really up!
Movement: none so far, hoping for this to happen soon! I have an anterior placenta which may delay feeling any movement.
Food cravings: I haven't had any cravings except for thin mint girl scout cookies last night. Weird! Good thing their were a few still in the house. I have also been craving fruit.
Gender: Will find out in a few weeks!
Labor Signs: none and hopefully it will stay that way for awhile!!!!
Belly Button in or out? my belly button sticks out a little on top, it started to do this around 10 weeks. That was an unusual change!
What I miss: working out, I miss my aerobics classes, especially Heidi's classes. I have been sticking to walking every day though to keep in shape. I also miss my diet dr. pepper!!!!!
What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move.
Weekly Wisdom: A fellow blogger recmmended taking Viactiv for extra calcium. Brilliant idea!
Milestones: Just making it to the second trimester. I am so happy to be here and thankful to God every day for giving me this blessing.

  1. I am so happy for you and your hubby Karen! Congrats on reaching the milestone of the second trimester. I just know everything will be fine for you and the baby.

    After four years of fertility to conceive baby Noah my sister just became pregnant out of blue with no treatments this time. We are all still pinching ourselves in amazement over this miracle. When you least expect it they say is so true. She's due in October with a boy to be named "Grayson".

    I can't wait to hear what you are having and the babies name. How exciting!

    Have a blessed evening.
    ~Warmly, Melissa :)
