Barely Bumpin' - 17 weeks

Went to the doc on Wednesday: Gained 3 lbs since last visit (1 month ago) and heard little one's heart beat thumpin away!  Rubella test came back negative which means I just got the vaccine so long ago (when I was a baby) that my levels of antibodies are too low to measure so...I will be getting a German measles booster shot as soon as this baby is out.

I saw a cute survey THIS GIRL does on her blog.  Short and sweet:
How far along? 17.5 weeks. 
Maternity clothes? No, but I unbutton my pants a lot :)
Stretch marks? No. 
Sleep: I seem to turn from side to side more often in the night but no runs to the bathroom yet!
Best moment this week:  "Joining"/redeeming a free 1 mo. membership to Curves and enjoying the perfect pregnancy workout.  Along with getting yelled at by old ladies who think I'm too skinny to be working out there.  I've had many conversations so far that go like this: "I'm expecting in November" "Expecting what?"
Miss Anything? Running in beautiful weather.  Running makes my hips hurt lately.
Movement: Not yet but the doctor said to expect them within the next week or so!
Food cravings:
I wouldn't call them "cravings" but fruit, cheese, and crackers are my favorites these days. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! 
Gender: N/A although we think BOY. 
Labor Signs: Ha. No
Symptoms: I'm feeling great and loving this stage of pregnancy! Clothes still fit okay and no more nausea :)
Belly Button in or out? Working it's way to being a full on out-y!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: Feeling some movement in there!

  1. This was a fun post! I like the survey.

  2. Loved this! I meant to warn you that you might get that reaction at Curves! That place is usually patronized by people shaped more like me. You need to get that little widget on your blog that counts down days to delivery.

  3. What a cute pregnancy survey! I may have to steal this for my next pregnancy update on the blog. :) You are adorable and will have a perfect bump!
