Belly's First Trip to the Beach, 17 Week Update

My Mother-in-Law is in town for a week and the one place she wanted to see was the beach. Luckily, we had one really warm day so we headed out there for an evening stroll!

Weight Gain
I weighed in at 126.5lbs this week, an overall gain of 6.5lbs so far. 

About the same.

Stretch Marks
*Happy Dance* No new ones!

Other than wearing ear plugs to drown out the noise of Hubs snoring, I am sleeping alright when I do sleep. I want to sleep all day and stay up all night. Doesn't really work out well with a toddler.

My belly literally jumped yesterday after drinking a Diet Coke with Lime! That was the most movement I have felt so far. For my big ultrasound at the end of the month I know what I will be drinking to make sure he/she uncrosses their legs!

I thought my morning sickness was getting better, then I woke up on Hubs birthday and ended up hugging the toilet as I wished him "Happy Birthday". I even took a Zofran! Luckily, I haven't been sick like that again.
Still dealing with abdominal stretching, round ligament pain, and sciatic pain. Good news though, no new painful symptoms!

Food Cravings
Salad and Diet Coke with Lime.

My MIL is 100% sure its a boy, apparently she has a knack for predicting these sort of things and is never wrong about it. Hubs also is so sure its a boy he only wants to argue about boys names. We will find out for sure at the end of the month!

Food Aversions
I do not like the smell of beef or turkey while browning on the stovetop.

What I Miss
Energy! I miss not needing a 3 hour nap after going to the grocery store LOL

What I'm Looking Forward To
The weather warming up so I can wear my cuter maternity clothes!

Highlight of the Week
My MIL is in town and LM is all over her, so I've been able to relax much more!

I feel like I am becoming more even, so maybe these hormones are leveling out.
