How far along? 17 weeks
Symptoms? fatigue!, increased hunger, headaches
Maternity clothes? Still fitting in regular clothes most of the time. I haven't purchased anything new, but I do have a top that I am currently sewing. Hopefully I can get it finished soon.
Nursery Purchases? None this week, lol!
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep? Sleeping is ok, but I'm having issues with the cat trying to use me as a pillow all the time. I'm not taking naps anymore, although sometimes I still really want to.
Best moment this week?Feeling the baby move a lot more. I haven't decided if they are good kicks or if they are because baby is unhappy, lol. So it begins! I had a few or ages today and baby was really kicking quite a bit after. I'll take it as a good thing. Baby must love baths then too.
Movement? Just about every day I feel some movement, though more when I am sitting at work.
Food cravings? Fresh pears. I craved them for a few days but couldn't find any ripe ones, and couldn't get ones I bought to ripen up. I finally found a ripe one today and ate half of it. Yum!
What I miss? No back pain. My right hip seems to be hurting almost every day. I know I need to kick my butt into making an appointment with the Chiro, and start up some prenatal yoga or something. I think it is likely a muscle issue.
What I'm looking forward to? Midwife appointment is Tuesday. I can't wait to hear Sea Monkey's heartbeat again!
Emotions? Excited that others are getting excited about the arrival of the baby.
