19w3d and doing fine :)

It's been a while since I've come around... But, with this being the end of the school year, things have continued to be hectic! I am definitely looking forward to Summer break and a little R&R. Still, I will be very busy getting the nursery cleaned out and starting to prepare that, as well as helping with Baby Shower plans and everything in between...

Here is what is currently going on:

How far along: 17 weeks, 3 days!!

Total weight change: +6 total, based on Doctor's office scale. We have no scale at home... Have to wait until my next weigh in, which will be tomorrow!

Maternity clothes: Same as last time... The only thing "maternity" I have purchased has been a belly band, which I use with most of my jeans... I have one pair of jeans left that fit comfortably, because they were huge on me pre-pregnancy... but ALL others are either too tight or don't close at all. I feel most comfortable in leggings, stretchy pants and dresses. I need to do a little shopping...

Stretch Marks: Yes, same as before, unfortunately :( I bought some "Bio Oil" which has come highly recommended for this "issue", and I am hoping it works. It does smell nice, though :) So far, so good!

Movement: None, that I've noticed... But I have a feeling these gasses and other little funny feelings may be the start of some noticeable movement ;)

Sleep: Still love my Boppy Total Body Pillow! :) :) :)

Best Moment This Past Week: Finding out that our integrated screenings all came back normal, and getting to see our little boy again :) the anatomy scan went really well, and apparently he was already weighing 10oz!

Most Difficult Moment This Past Week: Tossing my ENTIRE breakfast this morning, and then continuing to feel like garbage afterwards. Thank you to saltine crackers and sprite!

Belly Button In or Out: Still in, but not as deep as it used to be...

Cravings/Aversions: Pizza from this place nearby called "Roman's" and strawberries :)

Symptoms: Occasionally tired, but I blame that on things being so hectic... MS has died down a bit (aside from that episode I had), so I am hoping it is gone for good. Boobies are currently not sore, but huge!

Here are some shots from our last ultrasound at 8w4d :) next one is on June 20th!!!

That must be awful to have morning sickness still!! I hope it gets less and less!!! It will be great to be on summer break soon!!!

Thanks!!! Yeah, thankfully it's not everyday... But today was not a good day. Even after losing my cereal, I felt like poo the rest of the day. Sucks :-/ I know it'll be worth it in the end, though, so I try not to complain. It's all part of the process!

Yea it is but still throwing up is never fun!!

Diva Bud said...

No... it's not :( Feeling better today, so that's a good start!!! :) Hopefully it stays that way, since I have an appointment with my OB today.
