17 weeks

Tyler thinks it's smaller this week...what do you think?

How far along?  17 weeks
Total weight gain:  About 3 pounds
Maternity Clothes?  Yes, see yesterday's post.  A couple of you asked where I got my new clothes...Motherhood Maternity.  The shirts were buy one get one 50% off, but otherwise no sales or deals. 
Stretch Marks?  No
Sleep:  Not great, but better than last week.  Last night I had a dream that I went into labor, had the baby with tons of people in the room (parents, siblings, grandma, aunts, uncles), the doctor didn't make it to my room in time so my Uncle Mike delivered the baby.  And it was a boy and everyone hated the name we picked.  Not sure what any of that means?
Best moment this week:  Shopping!
Miss anything?  Massages!  When I was pregnant with Kyla, I got tons of back rubs from Tyler.  I get them every once in awhile if I beg long enough, but I think I deserve them more often :)
Movement:  Not really this week
Food cravings:  lettuce salads and apples
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not really
Gender prediction:  Girl
Labor signs:  No
Happy or Moody most of the time:  This was a good week!  Happy :)
Looking forward to:  Not really pregnancy related, but looking forward to going up to see Tyler's family this weekend.  Cross your fingers that Kyla sleeps in the pack-n-play!


  1. What a weird dream! Whenever I've dreamt the gender of someone's baby I've always dreamt the correct if you dreamt boy then maybe that's what it is! I can't wait until you find out...and if it's a girl I expect you to stop on your way home from the appointment and buy matching outfits for the girls---tell Tyler he has to agree :-P

    1. Oh I will definitely be buying matching outfits, whether he agrees or not :) No cherry outfits though, I promise!

  2. Maybe Uncle Mike needs to take a class or something...just in case! lol

    1. I was thinking the same thing! We'll see what he thinks about this :)

  3. It does look a little smaller, but not much.

    I have been eyeing up that site for maternity clothes the past week or so. Is there a store around here?

    Your cravings are at least healthy ones!! :)

    1. There used to be a store right across from West Towne Mall, but now it is in Hilldale...right across from Macy's. There is also A Pea In A Pod or whatever it's called IN Macy's, but it's even more expensive than Motherhood!

      This week were healthy cravings, which is good because I feel like I have been eating horribly!

  4. That is a crazy dream. I can't wait to hear what your having. Do you guys have names picked out?

    1. We have a few for each that we like, but nothing we're sold on yet. We are waiting until we know for sure what we're having and then we'll start really figuring it out (and hopefully agree on something).
