How's it going?

Can't complain! Pregnancy has been awesome!!

How Far Along: 17 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: around 8 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Some days yes, and some days no...weird isn't it!

Sleep: I want to sleep on my belly and it's not going to happen! Other than that...sleep is definitely here! I have never slept more! I went to bed at 9:30 last night and woke up at 5:50 am. Never in all of my days of teaching have I done that...I am a night owl usually! :)

Memorable Moment this week: We headed up to the mountains on Saturday to say our last goodbyes to Grandma. I loved it when my Uncle Carl let me know that every time a visitor came by to see Grandma Patty she showed them the ultrasound pictures of our sweet boy. He is her first great-grandchild. So precious!

Food Cravings: Nothing crazy. Still on the pickle kick. Last night Ryan looked in amazement at my dessert bowl. It was filled with 3 "concession-stand" sized pickles. yummy!

Food Aversions: Ate 2 more grilled chicken sandwiches this week. Life is good! Maybe I am in the clear! I have noticed I am a bit more sensitive to spices than I was pre-baby.

Favorite MOMENT: MORE KICKS! I love that I will just be sitting and feel him flutter. It makes me stop and thank God for him even more!
      We also bought a crib and set it up in his room! Now he has 4 outfits and a crib...we're set! haha! :)
Carrie, my hairstylist, made me feel like a glowing prego woman! Thanks to her for taking the time and going out of her way!! Love you! 
I have the privilege of working with my high school principal who has adopted me as her own! She came in and read to our class "Oh The Places You'll Go" on Friday in celebration of Read Across America Day. I was all teary eyed...full circle moment right there! 
Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: An onion!
  • His rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone.
  • And he's growing some meat on those bones -- putting on some fat.
  • He's growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord, too.
In the midst of losing sweet Grandma, we are reminded of the circle of life. You are a precious gift that God has blessed us with! Thanks for all of the sweet comments, messages, and love that everyone has poured out to us.
