[she is 17 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 17 weeks
Size: Turnip
Gender: We think we know but are keeping it a secret until we get confirmation at the anatomy ultrasound in a couple weeks.
Symptoms: Mostly GI related but I blame my crazy diet. Some dizziness and shortness of breath here and there but feeling good mostly!
Maternity clothes: I caved and ordered some cute maternity jeans (example above) and a few basic tops. It was time. It's still kind of cold for dress weather.  I fully plan on wearing these maternity jeans after pregnancy. These things are so comfy; I'm not sure why I waited to order them.
Stretch marks: None, yet!
Sleep: I'm having a hard time falling asleep at night. I've been making it a habit to talk to God at bedtime and let Him be the last thing on my mind. I notice when I cannot sleep, it's because I haven't been communicating to Him. So I get right and often I fall asleep during our chats.
Movement: Confused on if I am or not so we will just say no. Sometimes when I'm super still in bed, I think I feel baby make a big position change but it's so rare and infrequent, it could be something else at this point.
Cravings: It's still fresh fruit. A lot of citrus fruit. But I'm still hankering for fresh local watermelon. My sweet mother-in-law made chocolate covered strawberries last weekend and those were incredible. I'm also eating sour cream and onion Pringles like crazy. Pretty strange because the last time I ate Pringles was probably 5 years ago and I've already bought three cans this month.
Changes from last week: Allergies are still high and my belly is bigger.
Best moment of the week: Getting some clothes that fit my changing shape. I was living in sweats and nightgowns and feeling rather frumpy. It's nice to have some options again.
Miss anything: Sushi. Cold deli sandwiches. Medium rare steaks. But it's all worth it.
Looking forward to: Feeling legit movement and knowing 100% if little one is a boy or girl.
Scripture for the week: Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. - Psalm 27:14

Don't be fooled; the cat is taking a nap just two steps above this week


On a separate note, my husband's favorite book is The Pilgrim's Progress and there is a Kickstarter for this incredible book to be made into a film. Here's a sneak peak below and there's also some real cool backer rewards if you can help. Here's where you can donate to make this film possible: http://kck.st/1EBPz6Q
