This week my belly went from “Oh, it just looks like she ate a few too many Krispy Kremes” to “Hello there, belly! Glad you finally made it to the party!”
For some reason, seeing the little baby bump puts a smile on my face! It’s like I know he or she is in there, growing bigger by the day and we’re one day closer to meeting our little bambino.
How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 6 lbs. gained
Maternity Clothes? I bought the belly band and a pair of maternity skinny jeans
Stretch Marks? No
Best moment this week: feeling Baby V’s movement AND buying some French provincial furniture for the nursery (I plan on using Annie Sloan paint to refinish it!)
Miss Anything? I miss having a back that doesn’t hurt constantly :( Apparently, the doctor says I have sciatica which is not so fun.
Movement: Oh yeah :)
Food Cravings: Not really, just seem to be hungry all the time
Anything making you queasy or sick? Does the prenatal vitamin count? I swear that thing makes me feel sick right after I take it.
Have you started to show yet? I think the title of this post explains it, but yes :)
Gender: Not sure! But we find out Monday.
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button In or Out? In, but it’s not looking its usual self.
Wedding Rings On or Off: On
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy
Looking forward to: Seeing our little munchkin on the sono Monday and first making sure she/he is healthy and then finding out whether we’re having a boy or a girl!
