Sweet Onion

Week of May 3rd...Happy Birthday Lydia!

How Far Along? 17 weeks

17 weeks 1 day
2 finals today so the pic had to wait
and excuse the horrible hair, I just
got out of the shower
Due Date: Oct 11

Total weight gain/loss: +8-10 depending on the day and what I eat

Maternity clothes? I'm rocking the Gap Maternity jeans and a couple of shirts, I hate tight clothing more than anything, so some of my pre-pregnancy clothes still fit. But the jeans are getting tighter and I'm wondering how the half band is going to work as I get bigger. i was just wearing the jeans up higher but now every time I sit down the band rolls down...any suggestions??

Stretch Marks? I'm honestly terrified of this, I bought some Palmer's cocoa butter stretch marks stuff, so hopefully this will help. I already have some on my sides from growing so fast as a kid and I hate them, so I might have a mini breakdown if they happen with the baby! Plus that won't make for cute maternity pics!!!

Sleep: I've been feeling a little better, and sleep is slowly getting better, but it's getting more and more uncomfortable sleeping on my stomach, the only problem is, this is the ONLY way I can fall asleep. I've tried other ways but it just doesn't work! AND i've been having nightmares about the fact that I might be killing the baby because I'm sleeping on my stomach, like I'm suffocating it or irrational! 

Best moment this week: getting to see all the people I love for the many parties I attended, Including Miss Lydia Rose's 1st birthday party (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS LYDIA!!!), my dear friends baby shower, she is due in like 3 weeks, and my cousins bachelorette party. All of these were this past saturday and I didn't get home until 3am!!! no worries I slept until 1:30 sunday afternoon. What a WASTE!

Movement: There have been a couple of times where I thought I might have felt a strong kick but since I don't know what this is supposed to feel like I'm a little unsure. someone told me it may be a while since I'm so long torsoed, but who knows. I had a friend give me a suggestion about sitting with my legs up to my chest, so I'm going to try this. i'm just dying to feel Ash!

Food cravings: I haven't really been eating a whole lot this week. Nothing really sounds good but I drank a whole half gallon of milk yesterday. I'm trying to eat more healthy but it's hard!

Food aversions: cream cheese and sour cream seem to make my stomach turn for a few hours...
the gut

Gender: I want to find out at the birth!

Labor Signs: none

Belly Button in or out? i'm still hoping it stays in!

What I miss: not feeling like I'm the size of texas and not having as big of rolls!

What I am looking forward to: my final tomorrow (just because it means the semester is over) and my doctor appointment next tues. It's an ultrasound, my mother-in-law is coming up for it so I'm hoping its all good news. and yes I could find out the sex if I wanted to but I don't, so you'll just have to wait :)

Size of baby: 

Baby's now the size of an onion!
Baby's skeleton is hardening, changing from rubbery cartilage to bone, and fat is finally accumulating around it. His umbilical cord is getting thicker and stronger, and those little fingers and toes now feature one-of-a-kind prints.

  1. If you have the demi band gap maternity jeans, mine do the same thing. The low band really bothered me around 14 weeks until about 17. Then they were fine again. The band still rolled a bit, but it was just in the front. It didn't bother me all that much though.
