17 Weeks

How Far Along: 17 Weeks (again, a week late. Seeing a trend?)
Size of Baby: 5 inches, about the size of a large onion
Gender: We find out Christmas Eve!
Maternity Clothes: Not yet, but I've been gathering and washing them to be ready for use soon. I'm so glad leggins and tunic tops are trendy right now since this seems to be my pregnancy uniform these days :)
Movement: A ton more! Kicks are getting stronger, flips are getting more obvious, and ice cream makes this kid flip out!
Cravings: Still love a good turkey sandwich, cream of fruit oatmeal, and bad-for-you cereals (fruit loops, lucky charms, pops etc.)
Symptoms: This week with a combination of late nights and intense workouts I felt a new kind of tired that left me wiped out and crashing earlier than usual, but I guess growing a baby is a workout on its own too! 
Best Moment of the Week: Matt was able to feel the baby for the first time this week. I ate some Blue Bell Moo-llenium crunch, if you haven't had some, get some. Baby clearly approved with an hour long celebration of back hand springs and round house kicks which Matt got to feel as well :)
