Happy New Year--17 weeks

Size of Baby: An onion

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Back up to pre-pregnancy weight

Maternity Clothes: I'm finding that maternity clothes are much easier and much more comfotable. I love my new leggings and tunics. I also found some fabulous cords this weekend for going to work in.

Gender: It's a surprise!

Movement: I have felt a few flutters, but nothing regular

Sleep: This is improving! I still wake up a little early each morning, but mostly because I have to go potty!!

What I miss: Wine
What I am looking forward to: The next appointment on January 16th

Cravings: Fruit and chips and dip

Symptoms: The sickness has definately subsided, nothing else too major. I have had some nosebleeds, itchy tummy from time to time and I've seen a few stretch marks appear

Best Moment This Week: Really starting to show with a baby bump this week. I feel so much better to actually LOOK pregnant and not just look like I've eaten too many donuts

Happy New Year!! We went to dinner with a few friends and this was the dress that I wore. I went shopping that morning after I realized I had ZERO to wear to dinner and be happy. Unfortunately we got called home early (we had finished dinner and were getting the bill) because some people were setting off fireworks in the neighborhood and Tatum kept waking up scared. No big deal, we headed home and enjoyed some tv and fell asleep on the sofa. We woke up just before midnight, saw the New Year in and went to bed! LOL

Today was my first day back to work after 11 days off. It was hard getting back into the routine again, but thankfully it is only a 3 day week. No real New Year resolutions this year....we have a lot to be thankful for this coming year and I think we are ready to just embrace what is in store for us.

Happy 2013!!
