baby #2: week 17 (adjusted time is 20 weeks)

17 Weeks Pregnant
august 5-11

what has been going on this week: watched our neighbor dog maddie for 3 days, had our national night out block party, celebrated grandpa wayne's birthday, celebrated linnea's birthday 

size of baby: 5 inches long and weighs about 5 oz. the size of a turnip. 

maternity clothes: a mixture of regular shirts and maternity/elastic bottoms. most of my regular shirts are not gonna last much longer. unfortunately i'm not super excited about my maternity shirts. 

symptoms: same old broken out skin, hungry all the time, super tired (i fall asleep around 9pm every night)

movement: lots of crazy movement in there. it makes me happy! actually...one day this week i felt movement in 2 pretty far apart areas of my belly. freaked me out. we haven't had any ultrasounds yet, so i feel like the possibility of twins is still there, but not likely. 

gender: 2 weeks and counting! can't believe it! 

food cravings/aversions: i've been eating out a lot lately (not good for the wallet, but good for the belly). enjoyed pizza, brunch, and greek food this week. all were delicious! also, i had my first coffee shop beverage in 3 months over the weekend: a java chip frapuccino, and i enjoyed it! the thought of warm beverages still grosses me out, but we're making progress. 

morning sickness: a little bit of nausea in the morning for an hour or so after breakfast, like clock work. 

what i miss: nothing in particular this week

best moment of the week: celebrating my dad's birthday. so thankful for him! 

what thatcher is saying: "oh god...we're gonna have to get a mini van" when i told him about the movement on both sides of my belly. hahaha

sleep: still pretty decent. i usually have to pee once in the night and sometimes have trouble getting comfortable, but i know it will get much worse :) 

what i'm looking forward to: my doctor appointment tomorrow! recap of that will come next week.

EEEEEEK! That would be so exciting if you had TWINS! And I totally LOL'ed at Thatcher's minivan crack. From the moms I know that own them, they're very practical!

don't knock the minivan until you've tried one! we got ours and i never want to go back!! i'm glad you're feeling good. this minnesota weather has been a great summer to be pregnant!

You look so adorable! :) Jake still jokes that there are somehow twins in there. He thinks it's funny... it's not. :)

As for the maternity tops - I stocked up on the Mossimo t-shirts from Target and still wear them with maternity tanks underneath!!! Old Navy's t-shirts are pretty long too... you might just need to size up! Seriously. I wore those almost every day of my pregnancy. :) Throw on a necklace or a scarf and you're totally "dressed" up. HAHA!
