|Super early on---I think 5 or 6 weeks. (aka flat lil' tummy)|
|14 weeks...I think (new mattress still on the floor)|
|16 Weeks (bed FINALLY set up...yeah)|
I'm just over 17 weeks.
Both those pics are taken in the morning. I figure that's "just plain bump" time. By the end of the day I feel/look twice that size. Seriously weird. I guess all that food/water/gravity from the day does something to ya. :) And taking a side angle picture? Awkward x's 10.
We find out the gender in a little less than 2 weeks. Crazy dude. They also do a full scan of organs and all that jazz. That sounds very cool and exciting...and yet it makes me super nervous. Bah.
We have no preferences really. I imagine a boy for some reason and almost every friend I have thinks it's a boy too. Jason's voting for a girl. I have no gut feeling one way or another.
No cravings really. Food is more desirable but I still have times when nothing sounds good...and yet I'm still hungry.
The last dr. appt I had 3 weeks ago...I had gained 3 lbs. Yay me. :) The gym scale is now telling me it's a solid 5 lbs. I'm pretty sure that most of those lbs are found in one primary location. I'll give you a hint. They're above the rib cage and there are two of them. Holy cow dude. For real.
I haven't felt the babe move yet. There were a couple of instances this last week while I was falling asleep that I kinda thought maybe it was the little dude or dudette moving...but it could have been gas for sure. :)
I'm suddenly very thirsty and my throat is DRY as a bone all the time.
Foods that I DO lean toward when I do WANT food...every and all vegetables, bananas, greek yogurt, and pears. Pretty much the same foods I normally eat. Don't hate me. I know it's healthy. Sweets and coffee...little to no desire for it.
My current favorite product...that I think I would die if didn't exist...METAMUCIL! 'Nuff said on that topic. :)
Overall, I'm feeling a great deal better. Nausea here and there and a bit more energy. Yay for that!
