17 Weeks and Rocko

A close up shot

A close up shot


So far I’ve been feeling really good this week. I have had more energy through out the day and I just feel good. At least once a week I still run 3 miles. I am a bit slower and take more brakes through out the run, but I make it and feel wonderful afterwords! Tomorrow I have another check up at the Dr. If anything changes I will post, but if not then here is my weekly check in.

How far along? 17 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: I’ve gained 3 pounds so I’m back to where I was pre-pregnancy (as far as weight goes).

Maternity clothes? My mom bought me a few things. I haven’t started to wear them yet so dresses are still my friend!

Sleep: Sleeping great, but my dreams are crazy!

Best moment this week: I guess running yesterday and feeling wonderful.

 Movement: I thought I felt a little something last night, but I’m not going to count it because I’m not sure if it was the baby. So, no not yet.

 Food cravings: I still want that Starbucks Frappuccino, but besides that, almost any food is good.

 Gender: 16 days!

Belly Button in or out? In.

What I miss: Nothing new at the moment…same stuff as before.

What I am looking forward to: Wearing my maternity jeans…they are so comfy!

Weekly Wisdom: “Pregnancy brain” can get out of control, so write everything down. I actually put my keys in the fridge once. I guess you can’t write that down, but you can laugh to yourself.

Milestones: The baby has finger prints!

    Hey, guess what !! It’s rainy and damp here, so there’s nothing new going on here. The wedding was
    really nice. Lots to tell you and your Mom when I get home. I guess she told you about my problem,
    I hate when that happens!! Keep me posted about our new baby, OK?
    Lots of Love, Mawnee
