17 Week Bumpdate

17 weeks copy 2

How far along: 17 weeks! picture technically taken at 16 weeks, 6 days :)
Baby: Is the size of an onion
Total Weight Gained: scale says I've put on 2lbs this week! look out!
Sleep: Better now that I only get up twice a night to use the restroom! And I have figured out how to sleep well, without being on my back! I'm wedged between a pillow and small blanket and when I'm tired of laying on my side I roll to a half-back sleep position, caught by one of my wedges (So I'm not lying flat back). Okay that probably makes no sense... but it's so comfortable!
Maternity Clothes: belly bands and a pair of jeans from Old Navy
Best Moment of the Week: hmm can't think of anything, but just feeling better overall!
Food Cravings/Aversions: Appetite is growing! I eat more and I'm loving more. I'm not as picky!
Still no steak please.
Symptoms: Round ligament pain! It's started. Mostly when I get up from sitting/laying, or when I twist/turn. I'm not complaining though, it just means the belly is growing to make room for baby :)
Movement: Daily. And they're not just tiny flutters anymore, most are what I like to call thumps.  They aren't big by any means of course, baby is still tiny, but they're tougher than the little flicks I had been feeling! 
Gender: We can't wait to find out...16 days!
What I miss: nothing!
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out boy or girl!
Weekly Wisdom: better days DO come!
Milestones: On baby: fat is accumulating and skeleton is hardening!

Make sure you take a guess at Baby Pug's gender on the top left of my blog!
Here's what we look like at 17 weeks, according to BabyCenter. 
Look how big baby is getting in there!
