Today's date: Jan 10, 2012
How far along: 17 weeks
Total weight gain: -2 pounds
Size and growth of the baby: This week your little one weighs in at around 5 ounces and stretches to just over 5 inches (crown to rump). Baby is about the size of a red onion. Around this time your baby's ears pop from the head and Baby-to-be can now sense sounds. After all, baby has plenty to listen to in utero! Baby's accustomed to the strong beating of your heart, blood rushing through your veins, and your stomach grumbling. Baby can also discern sounds outside the uterus, like your voice and music.
Maternity clothes: Mostly Maternity. My regular shirts are getting shorter.
Sleep: Who needs it? When it happens its good and then its interrupted by a little boy or two.
Best moment(s) of the week: Went to the library with the boys and signed up for the winter lap time session. The boys love going to the library.
Movement: Small little flutters every now and again.
Food cravings/aversions: Really wanted Pork Chops Ole but it took way longer than I expected so we just had plain ol' pork chops major disappointed. Nothing sounds good to eat.
Morning sickness: Still a daily visitor but typically only in the mornings.
Symptoms: Tired, morning sickness, itching and stretching pains.
Labor signs: none
What I miss: Waking refreshed
What I'm looking forward to: Our Ultrasound which is scheduled for Jan 31st!
