17 Weeks

Pin It!

This has been an exhausting weekend! We moved out of the tiny duplex that we were in, and into a cute little house complete with wood floors, a fireplace, TWO BATHROOMS (which I will never take for granted again) and a little backyard. Not to mention there is a community pool in the neighborhood :-) I see many summer evenings floating on a raft in my future. Thank you so much to all of the family and friends that helped us this weekend - we wouldn't have been able to do it without you! Especially poor Brandon who picked up a lot of my slack since I wasn't much help in the heavy lifting department. My mom helped me pack up our whole kitchen, and my mother-in-law helped me unpack the whole kitchen :-) In the midst of our move, I've also had to stress about completing my final project for my summer class. It's due tomorrow! But then I have a whole two weeks to lay by the pool every day after work before my very.last.semester starts.

How Far Along: 17 weeks
Size of the Baby: Bell Pepper. Peanut is also yawning which I thought was really sweet :-)
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, I've been getting by with dresses and my bella band :-)
Stretch marks: Not yet!
Weight gain/loss: +2? 
Sleep: I would sleep all day if I could - but it's not quite as comfortable as it used to be. I miss sleeping on my stomach.
Best Moment of the Week: We are FINALLY moved in to our new place! It was the longest weekend, and every part of my body is sore - but I'm looking forward to organizing and decorating our new house :-)
Movement: Nothing certain yet! There have been a few flutters that may or may not have been the peanut.
Symptoms: My sloth-like behavior continues - I still cannot manage to get off the couch after work. Growing a human being is hard work!
Food Cravings: Food in general - holy hunger!
Gender: :-) We found out a couple of weeks ago, but we'll have it confirmed next Friday!
Belly Button in or out: In...although it is starting to look a little different - a bit more shallow.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Knock on wood - no! 
Labor Signs: nope
Wedding ring on or off: On
What I miss: Still miss having as much caffeine as I want.
What I am looking forward to: turning in my last project for my summer class tomorrow!!  
Nursery: Our "nursery" is currently filled with boxes of all of our stuff! I'm sure it will be awhile before it starts looking at all nursery-ish.
Emotions: I have to admit that I started sobbing last week when Brandon got home from work and wanted to pack up the truck with boxes before eating dinner. I tried to tell him I was too hungry, and when he insisted we could do it quickly, I burst into tears. He decided it was best to eat first.
Stupid things I have done: Please see above.

Husbands just don't understand how intense our hunger is...and that we need to eat right then! Loving the bump!

I love this list, you are hilarious and so so cute! I have to move at the end of Sept and I am so dreading it. I just wish someone would move for me and I would show up and be in the new place.

The sobbing over everything is so uncontrollably weird, yet feels so good to do so. Haa! Congrats on the move, and good luck with getting to rest after everything soon! xo!
