17 Weeks!

How far along?  17 weeks!
Baby Size: An Onion
Total weight gain/loss: 6+ lbs.  I've decided to just let the doctor tell me my official weight from now on.
Maternity clothes?  Definitely.  Although the maxi dress I'm wearing in the picture is regular size and I bought a regular size dressy dress for a wedding we are going to.
Stretch marks?  None yet.
Sleep:  The boppy has helped, but recently I find myself waking up and I'm on my back.  They say not to freak out so I just position myself back on my side, but I wake up a lot.
Best moment this week:  Chris surprised me with a picture frame for the ultrasound.  It said "It is truly amazing how someone so small, could inspire a love so grand".  It was so sweet, and with my crazy hormones I was definitely tearing up when I saw it!
Have you told family and friends:  YES!  We went to a cousin's graduation party and got to tell even more people.
Miss Anything? Not really
Movement:  I thought I felt some fluttering one day earlier this week, but I was probably wrong.
Food cravings:  Not really.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not much... Chris stopped eating his cheese in front of me.
Have you started to show yet:  Yeah, I'd say so.
Gender prediction: I still say girl,  Chris is back to being undecided.  I spoke to my niece Kaitlyn earlier this week and she says boy.  So we shall see!
Labor Signs: No 

Symptoms:  The swelling is still there but it's gotten better.  I experienced heartburn for the first time on Saturday.  It was not fun.  
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Really happy.
Looking forward to:  We ordered some baby books so I'm excited to start reading to the baby at night.
