How Far Along: 17 Weeks today!
Size of Baby: A turnip
Gender: We have no idea and it is starting to make me crazy. I feel like my life is in a major holding pattern! My doctor won't do anatomy scans until 19/20 weeks because she wants to be sure. I totally appreciate it, but now that I'm getting close, I'm starting to get ants in my pants.
Names: We have a boy name. We are getting closer on a girl name. Yay for progress.
Weight Gain: Yes, but I've been making an effort to reign it in. I'm trying to be realistic, but not go crazy.
Maternity Clothes: Yes. I think I'm going to live in maxi dresses this summer while I study. Side note: I found out I didn't pass the bar. I already have a plan on how to do things differently this time. I don't want or like pity. I've had my time to be upset, now it's time for action.
Nursery: When we have a gender, we will have better ideas about what we want to do with the nursery. For now, I know I want a white crib....and that's about it.
Movement: No movement yet, but I feel like it should be something I can report soon!
Symptoms: I think I said this last time, but this pregnancy is all about what I don't want. This kid doesn't like ranch or salsa. I think he/she's a little weirdo. I have had a few headaches and backaches lately. And my boobs are huge.
Sleep: I get one good night a week it seems. Other than that I struggle to get comfortable constantly.
Cravings: Pasta and pizza and tart fro-yo.
What I miss: Alcohol. Like I said I didn't pass the bar and Arkansas has a lovely countdown clock that ticks away the time until they announce whether you pass or not. I could have been drinking then. I know that may sound crass, but I'm going to be honest here.
Best Moment of the Week: We are moved into our new place! I also got some great news about my bar review course as well!
Looking forward to: Our next doctor's appointment and finding out the gender!
