seventeen weeks

your first sperry’s

You are a wiggly little thing! No big kicks or anything yet, but it feels like you’re tickling me with all your fingers and toes. Definitely not gas. You have fingerprints now and can start hearing things so it’s fun to talk to you 🙂


So much is going on at the house too. New deck around the house and an enclosure underneath. I can’t wait to get some things out of the house and into the garage so we can start decorating your room. Aunt Kristie and Uncle Ric bought you the cutest Sperrys last week. I’m sure it’s the first of many girlie things I’ll drool over! Bring on the headbands and tutus…you’re gonna be stylin come summertime. I can’t wait!


How far along? 17 Weeks, 4 Days
Total weight gain/loss: about 5 pounds
Maternity clothes? neighbor Athena gave me a bunch of maternity clothes, but haven’t had to tap into them just yet. I have rocked the belly band a few days though…
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleeping great
Best moment this week: feeling lots of movement!
Miss Anything? not being able to drink is awful… I had a teeny glass of champagne for a New Year’s toast last week and it took every ounce of my being not to run away with the bottle. On a lighter note, I’ve discovered O’Douls really isn’t that bad! It may be my saving grace…
Movement: I feel tons of little flurries, kind of like a muscle spasm. It’s great!
Food cravings: peanut butter and junk food! I’ve rediscovered Twizzlers and it’s heaven.
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope!
Have you started to show yet: Umm yes, and it still borders on “did Rachel let herself go over the holidays?” or “is she prego?”
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: fluctuates back and forth, but happy most of the time!
Looking forward to: getting your room setup and feeling you kick!


Daddy snapped this picture of Brodi and Nina while at work. I know it doesn’t really have anything to do with pregnancy, but they’re just so stinkin cute!
