17 Weeks!

On the cusp of 18 weeks. 
So much worse with taking pictures this time around. 

How far along: 17 Weeks
Total weight gain: Nothing yet. 
Baby Size: She is about 11 inches long, which is just about one inch shorter than your average 12-inch ruler and most likely crossed the one-pound mark in weight.
Movement: I feel very faint butterflies. Can't wait to feel lots of movement. 
Sleep: Through out my back which makes sleeping impossible. It actually makes most of everything difficult. 
Cravings/Aversions: It's weird. I have no appetite at all! Nothing seems tasty to me. I really am only eating to sustain. I seem to crave things but I usually have a few bites and thats about all I'm interested in. I have been craving juices, iced teas and anything iced cold. Passion fruit shaken tea from Starbucks has been a new favorite. 
Symptoms: Pelvis pain- I initially thought it was round ligament pain but the pain in my pelvis stops me in my tracks! I have to get up really slowly in order to feel less pain. Dry eyes- My eyes are so itchy. I need to get myself some eye drops. Heartburn- I'be already got my large Tums bottle ready for myself. 
Exercise: I've been walking as much as I can. I have also become obsessed with prenatal yoga. I feel like it's really helping. 
Mood: My mood is up and down a lot. My husband and I got in a fight and I didn't speak to him for 4 days. Thankfully everything is ok with us now. On Saturday I had a little meltdown at the meltdown at the mall with my mom because Jack was basically just being a toddler. My back pain has also made it hard for me to be positive. Lots of tears have been shed. 
Miss Anything: Beer. I've really been craving beer lately. I think because it's warm, we have been out on our deck and cooking on our grill. It all goes hand and hand with a nice cold beer.

Awe. You look so cute. I can totally sympathize with all the pain. My back pain was terrible in my pregnancies. I hope yours gets better.

Aw, I so remember the tiny butterflies in my stomach feeling. It's so precious!

I'm so excited for you! You realize you're halfway there already?! I feel like pregnancy plays this weird trick on you where it feels like forever, but also somehow flies by! How is that even possible?

You look amazing! I can't believe that you're already 17 weeks. Time sure is flying by. I can't believe it's May because it feels like Christmas was just yesterday.
