Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 17 weeks 3 days

Size of Baby? 5.1" Head to Bottom 5.9 ounces (big jump from last week) Baby is about the size of an onion.

Maternity Clothes? I bought a maternity top to wear to Shannon and Ryan's wedding, but I just thought it was cute, I don't need it.

Gender? We will find out July 21st.

Movement? I don't know, maybe, maybe not

Sleep? I can still fall asleep whenever wherever, I love sleep

Symptoms? None really, I still feel good

Cravings? Nothing really, blackberries still sound good though

Best moment of the week? I went to the Dr all by myself and got my blood drawn all by myself. That doesn't exactly sound like a good moment. But my blood work came back negative and the risk of birth defects are still less than 1 in 10,000. Yay

Doctor Appt

I went to the Dr. on Friday. We listened to the heartbeat, which was in the 160s, he was able to find the heartbeat right away. I have heard stories where people went to the Dr. but he couldn't find the hearbeat, so I was kinda holding my breath that we could. Everything looked great, and I actually went and got my blood drawn all by myself! First time ever! I scheduled an ultrasound for July 21st, yay, hopefully we will be able to tell the sex.

The rest of the weekend was spend on the back of Chris's Harley. The weather was so nice, I think baby enjoys all the fresh air. haha

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 15 weeks 2 days

Size of the baby? 4" head to bottom. 2 1/2 ounces. About the size of an apple.

Maternity Clothes? Still wearing the same clothes I wore before I got pregnant.

Gender? Still a mystery, but everyone is getting excited to find out.

Movement? I think I might have felt something. It felt like a little poke from the inside, but it could have just been gas, who knows?

Sleep? Is still great? I wish I didn't have to get up at 6am so I could sleep more!

Symptoms? I'm feeling pretty good. I still get those achy round ligament pain sometimes.

Best Moment of the Week? I went to Garrett's graduation party, and everyone rubbed my belly and told me how excited they are to have a baby in the family. It has been a long time!

Thursday, June 9, 2011


I went to the nutritionist this morning. What a waste of time. There were supposed to be 3 other women there, for a little class on healthy eating while pregnant, but no one else came, because their insurance didn't cover it. She informed me that I eat too many carbs. Duh that is all that sounds good right now. I did learn that it is ok to eat carbs as long as you pair it with some protein and some fat.
The best part about going to the nutritionist was I got to sleep in on a Thursday! Well I guess I better get back to work. I just wanted to document all the steps along the way of my pregnancy.

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 14 weeks 3 days (that's going by the ultrasound size)

Size of the baby? 3 1/2" head to bottom. Weighs about 1 1/2 ounces. The size of a lemon.

Maternity Clothes? None. I bought jeans with a stretchy waist band before I even knew I was pregnant. I do love my stretchy capris and tanktops on the weekends.

Gender? I don't know when I get to find out. I have a Dr appointment on June 24th so hopefully he will schedule an ultrasound appointment then!

Movement? I haven't felt any. When we had ultrasound, the tech said we have a very calm baby, it took 3 tries to get the baby to move enough so she could get her measurements. The baby just liked to snuggle in.

Sleep? I sleep just fine now. I was getting up a couple times a night to use the bathroom during my first trimester. I started sleeping with a pillow, I think all this helps, is to keep Chris away so I don't get to hot.

Cravings? I was loving strawberries, but now I am back to food not really sounding good. Oh well I guess it keeps me from gaining a bunch of weight. haha

Systoms? I have an upset stomach a lot and I feel like I have cramps sometimes, which I read a round ligament pains.

Best moment of the week? I rode on the back of the motorcycle, I was worried it would vibrate to much, but baby seemed to like all the fresh air.
