Week 17

How Far Along? 17 Weeks

Maternity Clothes? Last week I bought some maternity shorts and I've been putting them on when I get home from work each day. 

Weight Gain? I think10 pounds.  My scale is crazy though, one day this week I weighed 5 pounds less than it said the day before!  I think I need to just weigh myself every few days instead of every morning. 

Stretch Marks? None yet - I'm sure these are coming though. 

Sleep? Not great.  I wake up all the time, with no idea why.  Plus almost every time I wake up I'm on my back, which I know I'm not supposed to be.  It's really strange since I don't usually like sleeping on my back anyway.   

Weirdest Comment:  Someone I work with asked if she could touch my stomach.  I said, maybe later when it's a little bigger.  How strange, plus it's someone I am not close with.  Another person I work commented to me privately how odd she thought it was.    
Movement? I don't think I've felt anything yet.  Sometimes I think I may feel something, but I'm not sure yet. 

Gender?  Too soon to tell, but this is coming soon!

What I miss? Nothing. 

Symptoms: Bad sleep, weight gain, this week my face was breaking out some (it seems to be clearing up though). 

Weekly Wisdom: Try not the let the comments random people make bother you, they have no idea what they are talking about :)

Milestones: Nothing major, we'll be finding out the gender soon which is big!

Emotions: Looking forward to doctor's appointment next week and finding out the gender soon!


  1. I found that weighing once a week was the best way to do it!!! Cant wait to hear the gender!!!

  2. Sounds like everything is going well. Excited to know what you are having!!!
