17 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 17 Weeks-according to the ultrasound yesterday I am 18 weeks now, but we are going to stick with the original measurements for these weekly updates and be pleasantly surprised if the baby comes early!
Size of Baby: About 6 inches- the size of a bun length Ballpark hot dog
Weight Gain/Loss: Lost 2lbs-they think it's because I hadn't yet eaten breakfast before my appointment yesterday.
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I'm starting to see a little baby belly which means the maternity clothes may be making an appearance very soon!
Gender: BOY!!!!
Movement: A little more every day. This little guy seems a little less active than Harrison at this point. The ultrasound showed him happy and content just sleeping and nothing would wake this guy up!
Sleep: Pretty good
What I Miss: Nothing, I am loving being pregnant
Cravings: Taco Bell, usually around 1am-weird huh?
Symptoms: I'm feeling pretty good right now, I stay tired, but that's to be expected.
Best Moment of The Week: Seeing our little man on the ultrasound, watching him suck his thumb, and play with his ear. God's creation is amazing!

Funny story-we were asking Harrison what we should name the baby. We went through a bunch of names like Alfred, and George and Harrison would say, "no". We finally asked him what he wanted to name his brother and he said, "Um, Blue or Red!"
