Pregnancy Highlights: 17 Weeks

How far along: 17 Weeks 3 days!

Size of Baby: Babies are the size of a TURNIP!

Total Weight Gain/Lost: I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and was weighed and...**GULP**...I've gained between 15 and 20 pounds already!  OH. MY.  Honestly, it doesn't bother me, I just can't believe it's already that much!  It makes me happy when I've gained some weight because I know as this twin pregnancy progresses it won't be very easy to eat as much as I need to. 

Maternity Clothes: Pretty much all the time! I also spend lots of time at home in pajamas and yoga-type pants.

Gender: Baby A is a GIRL! Baby B is a BOY!

Movement: Still not sure, but I think I feel movements here and there.  I just am not sure what they feel like, so it's difficult to know for sure.  I'm hoping they will make it really obvious here pretty soon!

Sleep: Sleep is getting better, I think.  Most nights, I'm only up 2 or 3 times. 

What I Miss:  Honestly, I don't miss much.  I am starting to finally enjoy being pregnant and can relax a bit.  But, if I had to choose something, I guess it would be that I miss being independent, and being able to do things on my own, without having to wait for others to help me (like getting Christmas decorations down from the attic). 

Cravings:  None especially.  Some things sound better than others, but true cravings have kind of subsided. 

Symptoms: A BIG BELLY, a sore back and some mild cramping and stretching.

Best moment for this week: Meeting my new OBGYN this week.  She was really outgoing and fun and most of all, very positive.  PLUS, she's a Fightin' Texas Aggie!!!  We didn't know that when we chose her as our OB, so that was definitely a pleasant surprise.

  1. Feeling movement is sooo awesome!!!

  2. Someone told me that if you feel something in your stomach and it's not followed by a "toot" then it's the baby and not gas. TMI I know but it was great advice for this new mommy. HA!!

    Kendalyn's furniture is Munire Savannah. We actually got it in Onyx (black) it was still in the wrapper when I took the picture. It does come in Linen (white). We bought it at USA Baby in Houston. They also sell it at Baby's 1st Furniture in Houston. I was very overwhelmed with Babies R Us so I felt better being in a furniture store and concentrating on what I wanted for her room. Silly, I know.
    This bed converts into 4 beds...crib, toddler, day bed and a regular full size bed. I was very excited about that. She can have her room a variety of ways.

    I have 2 other furniture brochures on beds that we liked. If you would like information on those let me know. I'll be glad to share. They are quality beds at a good price. Daddy did choose the most expensive out of our 3 choices for our baby girl. I don't think she will be spoiled at all, HA!!

  3. Your getting there!! It is such and awesome feeling, girl!! You'll love every second of it, and it makes it that much more REAL!! :)

    So happy things are going good!!

  4. Movement feels like butterflies and as u progress the feelings get stronger until one day u really feel body movement from the babies! Congrats!


Comment away, y'all!
