Movement: I don't know anymore. Maybe I've been feeling it, maybe not. I would be surprised if what I was feeling was actually not movement since I have an anterior placenta this time around, but who knows.
Weight gain this week: Another pound
Total weight gain: I think that puts me at 6 pounds. That's more than I had gained last time around at this point, but not by much I don't think.
Cravings: strawberries, jello, juice, frozen yogurt, these weird veggie cracker things, pizza.
Aversions: none that I can think of.
I am so excited to find out the sex of our baby. I don't know why, but knowing the sex makes everything seem more real to us. We can start thinking of names and buying clothes (well, only if it's a boy since we already have so many girl clothes). We will hopefully find out in about 3 weeks if baby cooperates during the ultrasound! We've had 3 ultrasound so far, and couldn't tell in any of them, so we really have no idea! I'm thinking girl (even though I've had 3 dreams that it's a boy), and Mark is thinking/hoping/praying it's a boy. Of course, I'd be thrilled if it's a boy, and Mark would be thrilled if it's a girl, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
This week I also went maternity clothes shopping with my mom, which was... okay. I did end up with a few things, some I actually really liked, some that were just okay but will probably be needed as I get bigger. I did find one really nice pair of jeans from "A pea in the pod" but we only bought then because they were on sale- everything in that store is way too expensive!! I also ordered some stuff from old navy online, but it's totally hit or miss if any of it will fit correctly, so I guess we'll see. I'll be sporting all my new clothes in upcoming weekly photos, so get excited!!
I've been trying to tell Riley all about her new future brother or sister, but it's so hard because she's still so little, I have no idea how much she will understand! But before we both know it another little bubba will be entering our household, and I'm sure she'll get the picture then! This pregnancy is pretty much flying by, hard to believe we're at 17 weeks already!!
