17 Weeks

 17 Weeks- Baby O is the size of a turnip.

How far along? 17 Weeks
 Total weight gain? Up 4 pounds
Maternity clothes? Not yet- although I did go buy some cute fall dresses for work and bought them  in a size medium for the upcoming months!  I'm trying to wait out this maternity clothes thing as long as I can- until I have to give in I'm just gonna go a size up (or more if needed).
Stretch marks? Nope- lathering on my cocoa butter
Sleep? Once I fall asleep it's awesome but I've been having some back pain so it's hard to get comfy at first. 
Best moment this week? Keep reading for the major news.... and also rearranging/organizing the closets for Lil' O!
Miss anything? My old skin- I'm fighting breakouts like a 13 year old.  I never had complexion problems during puberty and now I have a whole new appreciation on what some middle schoolers have to endure.  If anyone has a miracle facewash let me know cause the ones I've tried just aren't cutting it.
Movement? Felt the first flutters just last night!!!!!!!!!!  I had literally just whined to Trent an hour before about how I've been paying such close attention and hadn't felt anything yet.  Right after I laid down for bed I felt little butterflies dancing in my belly.  Pretty freaking awesome!
Food cravings? Nothing new- other than my Sunny D and sweet tea
Anything making you queasy/sick? Nothing for 3 weeks now :)
Gender? A month away- hurry up.
Labor Signs? No- I'd hope not!
Symptoms? Some back pain, daily headaches, and heartburn- but nothing I'll complain about compared to that nasty first trimester nausea!
Belly button in or out? In- and it actually looks like a hole now!  As weird as that sounds... I have a really strange belly button.  It was more like a semi closed swirl rather than a hole (like that makes any sense) but not now!  Now I can see how people get fuzz in their belly button or why kids stick things in their belly button.  I didn't realize what I'd been missing out on haha ;)
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody? Super excited... minus being mopey this morning.  I did NOT want to go to work.  Not sure if it was a case of the Mondays, coming off a 3 day weekend, being a dreary morning, or just pregnancy hormones.  I was much better once I got to see my kiddos though!
Looking forward to? Our doctor appointment tomorrow evening- can't wait to hear that heartbeat again!
Daddy moment? Trent falling asleep with his hand on my tummy... awwww :)

My big project this weekend was rearranging our closet situation.  The pic on the left was the scrapbook room/office closet before... and on the right is after.  The baby stuff has started moving in and everything!

This was the guest bedroom closet before and then after once all the scrapbook stuff moved in too.

 My favorite thing in Baby O's closet right now is the blanket I crocheted him/her the first week after we found out we were pregnant.  I needed something to distract me from the "morning" sickness at night on the couch.

 Trent's work had their annual family day this weekend and this year they held it at the new aquarium at Crown Center.  We hadn't gone yet so were excited we'd be going for free.  We love aquariums and this one didn't disappoint- we just wish it was bigger!

 First time we were at Family Day with our bump along for the fun :)

 Seeing all the Nemos made me wish Jeryn was there with us too!

 Close up of the bump to prove that it's definitely hanging out now!

Patio cover update- Trent's been working like a mad man to finish it.  He took a half day today and finished the roof and the membrane? thing you put down before shingles.  Not too much further to go!
