17 weeks.

So I'm 17 weeks and considering how early we found out and how this pregnancy has been a long time coming, I feel like it's actually gone by fast so far! 

Yeah, I know I'm big! Everyone was like "Oh you're so tall, you won't start showing til at least 20 weeks. Most girls don't with their first one. Um, nope! 

I have not been keeping track of every minute like most girls do with their first. I think it's probably because I've been so sick and working full-time that I just haven't had the energy to do anything cute starting from the beginning and documenting everything little thing. Now I wish I had! 

I saw this on someone's blog and thought it's the closest thing I can easily do to remember different parts of my pregnancy...

How far along are you? 17 weeks 1 day
Total weight gain: 4 lbs  (I know, it doesn't seem right! but I was at the dr's a few days ago and that's what it said). My appetite is in full swing now and I can eat seriously so much, so cheers to probably gaining a 100 lbs by the end! I'm scared...
Maternity clothes?: I'm having a hard time dressing myself! None of my tops are fitting right. I think it's because of my long torso and tops were shorter as it is, so forget about it with this belly I'm already growing! I just ordered a couple maternity tops online. Boo. I was hoping I could hold out longer. 
Stretch marks: Not yet
Sleep: Heavenly! Jeff leaves before me and always texts me later in the morning and says how "dead" I was before he left. 
Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl on Friday, and watching the Bachelor premier last night! 
Miss anything? I miss getting different facial treatments that I can't do anymore! BUT my skin has actually gotten really clear since I've been pregnant! Loving that part of it. 
Movement:  None yet. I thought I felt flutters, but I don't think so. 
Food cravings: I can eat pizza all day everyday. Even when I was super sick, pizza was the only thing that didn't send me running to the bathroom. 
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Brushing my teeth! I need to find a different flavor to see if that helps
Gender: a little lady :)  Jeff couldn't make it to the dr appt that day (I was 15 weeks and we also didn't know if we were going to be able to find out that day), so I had the tech write it in an envelope and I went straight to work and worked all day and then had a work dinner that night so I didn't get home til 9:30pm for us to open it! We were dying to know all day! I'm nervous about having a girl because I'm not really that girly, but we are so excited! 
Labor signs: none
Symptons: Still get sick in the mornings, usually exhausted (I seriously haven't cooked dinner in like 4 months. Sorry Jeffy) 
Belly button in our out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: on
Happy or moody most of the time?: I would say happy. I rarely get moody. Always been pretty even-tempered my whole life and this pregnancy hasn't really changed me much in that way! Although I get grumpy when I'm hungry (but if you ask Jeff, it's been that way our whole marriage :)
