How many weeks?: 17 weeks, 5 days
Size of Baby: Sweet potato: 5.5 inches, 5 oz
Countdown: 22 weeks left (Only 156 days!! SCARY. Why is this pregnancy going by so much faster?)
Total weight gain/loss: +1 lb
Maternity Clothes?: Not yet.
Energy Levels: Depends on the day. Some days I have tons of energy, some days I have zero energy, where I barely make it through the day.
Exercise Habits: Managing to exercise 45-90 min of cardio/weights five days/week. Swimming laps (only 1750 yards at a time), hiking mountains, yoga classes, Zumba classes, spin classes, stationary bike at home.
Physical Therapy: Hips are starting to hurt more during the night. It helps to sleep with a huge body pillow between my legs.
Sleeping?: Horrible. I wake up 3-4 times a night just because. And then it takes me a while to fall back asleep. Thank goodness for my iPhone and mobile news websites and Netflix.
Worst Moment in the past 2 weeks: Baby girl getting her first molar at 13 months. Then getting sick. Then getting me sick.
Best Moment in the past 2 weeks: Hiking to a waterfall by our house, then getting sno-cones afterwards. Weekends are the best.



Isla's Reactions: Fascinated by my belly. She loves to pull up my shirt and pat my belly. I keep telling her there is a baby in there, and she keeps laughing and slapping my tummy. Then I take her hand and show her how to gently pat my belly. This lasts for ten seconds before she goes back to the pounding.
Miss anything?: Wearing jeans. Baby is resting comfortably right across where I button my jeans, so yoga pants and leggings, it is.



Movement: I've seen the baby kick several times in the past week!! Real, tiny, little punches. I feel her move daily now, when I'm laying or sitting down. I love this part.
Morning Sickness?: Really bad nausea in the morning. I can usually Lamaze-breathe through it.
Food Cravings: PB&J sandwiches. Nectarines. Taco Bell Chicken Quesadillas. Nectarines. Fudgesicles. Nectarines. Grapes. Nectarines.
Food Aversions: Chicken. Chocolate milk. French fries. Ice cream. Peaches (fuzz, gross.)
Showing yet?: NO. This freaks me out. I am working out a lot more than last pregnancy because I can work out when I have energy in the mornings, as opposed last time, working 8-10 hours a day and coming home and crashing. But my body just holds that baby in for as long as possible. So, I just look like I've gained 15 lbs. Thank you, bloating.
Gender Prediction: GIRL. Isla's getting a little sister. I've felt this way since before I even got pregnant. We find out in less than two weeks!
Labor signs: No braxton hicks yet.
Moods: Why does being pregnant stress me out??? I de-stress by staying away from this blog & facebook & twitter.
Not Looking Forward to: Glucose test. Months away, and the thought of it already makes me sick.
Looking Forward To: BABY BUMP, WHERE ARE YOU? Can't wait for my 19 week ultrasound appt to find out the gender!

Battle of the bellies... looks almost exactly the same as my last pregnancy. This makes me feel a little better. That means I'll have an official bump by 22-ish weeks.
