baby bump: 17 weeks

how far along? tomorrow I'll be 18 weeks!  due January 28th.

how are you measuring? on the sonogram on July 16th, the baby measured 4 days earlier than the due date

size of baby: size of a sweet potato, 5-6 inches (crown to rump) and 6-7 ounces

heartbeat: 159 bpm at last appointment

total weight gain/loss: + 6 lbs

maternity clothes: I am slowly breaking them out. this morning, my shorts didn't fit, so I got out my Target BeBand.

stretch marks: using cocoa butter, so hopefully not.

belly button: same

sleep: Nolan has been sleeping in a little more this week, which has been nice! I've gotten a few naps in the afternoons as well.

movement: I am starting to feel this baby moving a lot! It is such a wonderful feeling. Even Steve could feel kicks the other night!

food cravings: Mentos, french onion soup, Snickers ice cream bars

food aversions: still not eating a lot of meat, but that's not unusual for me.

gender predictions? girl, perhaps? I love baby boys, too.

symptoms I have: frequently hungry and thirsty

comparisons to last pregnancy: at this point, it's very similar.

doctor’s appointment: I'll go to my new doctor the first week of September.

what I’m looking forward to: it will be so much fun to find out the gender! I'm not sure when that will happen, but I can't wait to choose his/her name, design the bedroom, and put together clothes (organize Nolan's baby clothes, or start collecting little girl things!)

I am definitely bigger right now than I was at 19 weeks with Nolan. Crazy how that happens.


  1. You are looking great! Too bad they aren't going to do an ultrasound at your next appointment to find out the gender! You seem to have a lot more patience than I did with all of that!

  2. aw! you are so cute! glad you've been able to get some extra sleep.

  3. It will be so fun to find out what you're having!!

  4. Cutest baby bump!!!

  5. You look radiant! And I love the dress!

  6. looking stunning in that photo! how exciting !
