Week 17

There's not much new since the last post, but I want to keep going on these weekly updates anyway. We made it home from our vacation and are sifting through the 500+ pictures we took on the trip to select blog-worthy ones. I'll give you a sneak peak of what's to come later this week... ;-)

Until then, here's Week 17!

How far along: 17 weeks, 1 day

Size of Baby S: 5 in, 5 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Onion

Total weight gain: 0 lbs

Sleep: Alright. Jason has been sick so his coughing has made it hard to sleep and Zoey has decided to seek revenge on us for being gone so long and we've had to get up multiple times at night to scold her for being on the counter, tearing apart boxes, etc. Brat cat.

Movement: Nothing yet...but according to the pregnancy books I should start feeling little flutters in the next few weeks.

Unglamorous body changes: I look like I have developed a muffin top rather than a baby bump. And it's still only obvious in certain clothes or particularly after mealtime...

Maternity Clothes? Nope.

Showing: I can definitely see and feel the bump, but it doesn't look like much through clothes.

Food cravings: Orange juice and oranges. Also icing. I really want an Ooh La La cupcake. :-/

What I miss: Sushi. I really want some good hand rolls (which are probably all cooked), but those are hard to find here as opposed to sashimi (the raw fish).

Anything making you queasy: Jason's driving on the Ireland windy roads right after breakfast. Probably not what the question was referring to though... Food-wise, nothing.

Strange experiences: Telling coworkers that I am pregnant and having them say that I don't look pregnant at all. I still don't really feel differently so it's still hard to think that I am actually pregnant.

Milestones: The baby's skeleton is changing from cartilage to bone. Hopefully to feel little kicks one day soon! :-)

Best moment this week: Starting to contact photographers about doing a maternity photo session in Houston when we return in March and possibly in Cozumel where we are going for our babymoon.

Looking forward to: We finally decided on a midwife/ob-gyn practice that we are going to use for our pre-natal care. I have an appointment with the midwife next week to meet her. Then the following week we have our hospital ultrasound to find out the gender!
