Week 17

Week 17: June 10 - June 16

Size of the baby?
5.1 inches, about the size of an onion!
Total Weight Gain/Loss?
up 2.4 lbs - I actually lost weight this week. I'm guessing I'm losing muscle and gaining fat/baby
Maternity Clothes?

Wearing my skirts and wore my first pair of maternity pants this week. They were pretty comfy!

Best Moments?
Telling the rest of my co-workers on Tuesday that I'm pregnant. We had a staff meeting and my boss thought I should announce it then since most of my co-workers didn't know yet. Everyone is very happy for us and has been giving me tons of advice for websites to check-out, offering their baby's clothes (our office is a revolving door for baby making apparently - 4 babies in the past 9 months and I will make 5 in just over a year) and constantly congratulating me. Makes me feel so great (and relieved)!

I think I felt some fluttering yesterday, it was pretty exciting!

Food Cravings?
I broke down and went to Cherry Berry on my way home from work on Friday. I got watermelon and tropical sorbet (and cookie monster and peanut butter). I LOVED the watermelon and tropical. I could eat that daily!
Anything making you queasy or sick?
Not so much anymore

What I miss?
Random as this may seem, I've been missing my grandma lately. It's not weird to miss someone that's gone, but she's been gone for almost 13 years now. I've been making my favorite desserts of hers lately. Angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries & peaches and cream. They don't compare to hers but they still remind me of her and taste yummy :) 

What I'm looking forward to?
* My doctor's appointment on Wednesday for a regular check-up (should hear the heartbeat!)
* My ultrasound appointment on Thursday to *hopefully* find out if it's a boy or a girl
* Meeting up with Kelly later this week to hand her the ultrasound results (must get rid of that envelope ASAP)
*Seeing the cake that Kelly will make us, so extremely excited!
*Our Gender Reveal Party in 1 week
*Our upcoming trip to Minot to see my family and friends. I'm dreading the looong drive there, but it will be a fun weekend!

Not really any nausea anymore
Labor signs?
Ultrasound is June 21, but Chris and I and our family and friends will find out on the 24th

Belly Button In or Out?
Wedding ring On or Off?
On and loose
Slept pretty well this week!

PS: my weeks are off. I don't know why it's so difficult for me to understand what week I'm on. Pregnancy brain already?? I've gone back and switched them in case you're confused


  1. I'm super impressed that you were able to keep it a secret for 17 weeks! I had a major bump by then, so there was no hiding it :) Is that Kelly from Keeping up with Kelly and Co making your cake?

  2. I just linked over from Keeping Up With Kelly - love our similarities! I work in Acct, with a landscaper hubby and we are also expecting our first child! I hope everything goes great with the gender reveal - what a fun way to do it!! I'll be reading along with your updates!
