Prego Journal: Week 17

How far along: 17 Weeks
Baby's first college football weekend! 
How big is baby:  Turnip
Total weight gain: +4
Maternity clothes: I actually wore real maternity clothes this week!  I started my internship and because it's at a homeless shelter, jeans are more the norm than slacks.  I only have one pair of nicer jeans left that I can fit into, so I wore some of Nancy's maternity jeans.  They're pretty cute and quite comfortable! They are a little short, but also free so I'm living with the short. 

Sleep: It has been okay.  Jason and I switched sides of the bed so that now when I'm on my left side it means I'm facing him.  This helps me sleep because I'm able to cuddle with him and hold on to him to keep me from rolling too much.    

Best moment(s) of the week: 
1) We went to Nancy's vet clinic on Monday and got to see Iggy on their ultrasound machine! The baby is getting so much more active; punching, kicking, rolling around.  It's fun to see. And it was great to be able to share the moment with my mom, sister, bro in law, sister in law, and husband.  I can't wait for our next ultrasound at the Dr.'s office!
2) We closed on our house this Friday (our 8 monthiversary)!!  We won't get to move in for a few more weeks, but it's fun to know we're homeowners! 
Food cravings: none really, although my appetite has grown a bit
Food aversions: Still pretty turned off by sweets
Symptoms: Getting warm easier; tummy grumbles; occasional nausea (I did throw up once this week); I'm ready for bed by about 8:00...which makes my class that lasts until 8:20 interesting.  
Movement: Not mom and Nancy told me the movements early on feel like stomach bubbles.  Well, I have lots of stomach bubbles (even before I was pregnant)...part of me thinks some of these may have been Iggy because lately the bubbles have felt a little different.  Regardless, all my pregnancy apps and books say I should start feeling something within the next couple of weeks!
Gender: Still no doctor confirmation, but Jason and I think we have a good idea. 
What I’m looking forward to:   hmm I don't think there's any big excitement this coming week.  I guess just another week of internship.  I'm really enjoying it so far, I love the population I'm working with and feel so blessed to have this opportunity! 
What I miss: I'm back to missing running.  There were two days of beautiful weather this week and I would have loved to just go for a run
Next appt: September was supposed to be the 10th but I had to move it for my internship schedule 
Workout/Fitness: Unfortunately, not a darn thing.  This was my first week of internship and classes.  I've got a pretty full schedule, so I used this week to adjust a little and will hopefully get back into a workout routine next week.   


  1. I know you said you didn't have any doctors confirmation yet, but what have you been doing to figure out if it's a girl or a boy?

    I messaged you on facebook, a while back. Did you ever get that message?

    Thinking about you often!

    I seriously look forward to your posts every week! <3

    God Bless! Prayers are with you!

  2. Iggy definitely looks better in maroon. :) So excited about my new neighbors....I drive by the house everymorning and smile. :D
