Pregnancy Update: Week 17

How Far Along:  17 weeks

Total Weight Gain:  At my blood "specialist" visit last week, they weighed me in at 130....but they don't reset their scale after every use like you're supposed to, so I take it with a grain of salt.  I also use the term specialist very loosely with that quack.  Ugh.

Maternity Clothes:  I still haven't bought anything else maternity.  I'm currently trying to wear all of my sweaters now to try and determine what will make it the next four months.  So far, none of them will. 

Stretch Marks:  Still no new ones, that I can tell.

Sleep:  Maybe it's the full moon, but I have slept terribly the past four days.  I wake up at least twice a night to pee.  Then, toss and turn to finally fall back asleep....then, go pee again.  Adam said he is buying me the Boppy Sleep Pillow.  I'm not 100% sure which one Target carries, but hopefully it's something like this (in a different pattern, woof!):


Best Moment This Week:  My birthday was this week and although it seemed like a normal day, I got to spend it with Adam, his family, and my parents.  Pretty good.  We also went to Glendale Days and even though it was disgustingly muddy and cold, Adam got a super cute stuffed Ewok for the baby and I'm excited about it.  Now he has to make it a hood. 
Miss Anything:  I officially cannot sleep on my stomach and it's driving me crazy and making me sad.  Laying on my stomach is the only comfy position for me.  I also miss my brain.  Before this, I thought "pregnancy brain" wasn't real.  I am a believer now!  I've been mid-conversation and go totally blank, dropped a full cup of sweet tea, mixed my words's terrible!
Movement:  Well, I still don't want to say, "yes, i've felt the baby"...but these "muscle twitches" that I keep getting are sometimes so intense, they make me get a little bit nauseous.  BUT, if those twitches are the baby, he/she was very happy during church, which is sweet. 
Food Cravings:  Over-medium eggs still...and crab legs.  If you were to ask me, "Amanda, what are you thinking about?"  Those two things would almost always be my answer.
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick:  Still with the chicken texture.  Other than that, it just appears randomly throughout the day. 
Gender:  7 days!  Still no clue on the reveal, but I guess we'll figure something out. 
Labor Signs:  None.
Belly Button In/Out:  Sadly, my little belly is already starting to push parts of my belly button closer to the edge.  I'm so scared.
Wedding Rings On/Off:  On.
Happy or Moody:  It's weird.  I've been incredibly moody.  I will snap on someone so quickly, but I still feel in a good mood after....oh well. 
Looking Forward To:  Our construction being completed, hopefully by the end of this week!
