Bumpdate : 17 weeks

We are beyond thrilled to be having a BOY!
Honestly, I was shocked. I was convinced he was a girl.
But the ultrasound, was *very clear* once the boy bits were pointed out.
Apparently, those old wives tales are just that...

Also, you may be wondering where the white long sleeve t-shirt went. 
You see, the plan was to take all the bump pictures in the same shirt 
so you could really see the progression.
Well, last week at 16 weeks I put it on and had a meltdown.
I felt very un-cute. 
And if you've ever been pregnant, 
you know that feeling un-cute when pregnant is on a whole different level.
The last thing I wanted was to have my picture taken.
So, the new plan is to just take a picture in whatever I'm feeling good in that week.
And the old white t-shirt got cut up into dust rags. :)

How Far Along? 17 weeks!
Size of Baby? Size of a turnip, 5 ounces, 5 inches long from head to rump
Maternity Clothes? I broke down and finally got some maternity jeans that fit well and man they make all the difference in the world. So comfortable.
Weight Gain?  I have been sick (upper respiratory virus) over the past couple of weeks, and lost some weight. I'm currently up 1 lb from my pregnancy weight but my doctor didn't think that it was an issue.
 Stretch Marks? No. Moisturizer is my best friend.
Gender?  BOY!!
Sleep? My friend Toni, let me borrow her Snoogle pregnancy pillow. Oh my gosh. This thing is a beast but I sleep so good with it!
Food Cravings? Nada. Trying to force myself eat my veggies and I've been conscience about getting plenty of protein and dairy. Still lots of carbs and fruit.
What I Miss? Caffeine and some of my normal clothes that no longer fit.
Symptoms? Constipated and I've got a big belly on me. Also, dirt and clutter are bothering me. I've really picked back up the deep cleaning around the house that was I was slacking on in the first trimester and I went on an organizing tear the other day.
Belly Button? It's super shallow. 
Best Moment of the Week? The ultrasound and finding out it's a boy! I've started on the nursery and will share more soon!
