How far along: 17 weeks
How big is baby: Onion
Maternity clothes: wearing some, a lot of my regular clothes still fit. The pants are a little tougher, but fit with my Belly Band.
Sleep: Pretty good..this week has been rough though with all of the congestion (oh my!). If I could breathe, I could sleep better
Food cravings: nothing particularly, a couple of weeks ago it was mint. I left the grocery store with mint oreos, mint ice cream and mint gum...super healthy. I have also eaten school cafeteria food a couple of times because it looked good....I wouldn't have done that at all before.
Food aversions: None really.
Symptoms: I never really had morning sickness. Slight breakfast aversion in the early weeks, but once I figured out what I could eat that was gone. I guess exhaustion especially until week 10 and then its come back this week with the allergies/cold/whatever this is. I mean my Christmas decorations are still not up : ( A little heartburn too. I had to call and ask my mom what the feeling was, I had never had it before.
Movement: Hopefully Baby is having a party in my tummy, but I'm not exactly sure what the movement will feel like though.
Gender: I have no idea. I know the mom is supposed to have some feeling... Cody is convinced we are having a boy. We'll see soon!
What I’m looking forward to: The gender ultrasound! Feeling Baby move. Some medicine working so I can breathe normally!
What I miss: Milk and cereal at breakfast (not part of my diabetes meal plan). That doesn't matter at all though when thinking about having a healthy baby! I thought I would miss running more often and for longer, but really I've done a good job of listening to my body and only running as much as I can on days that I really feel like my body can handle it.
My students have been really funny this week. Each day they're telling me my stomach looks bigger. Man, they're in for a surprise by May if they're really this shocked each morning. : )
