17 Weeks (and a couple of days)

This past week I haven't been feeling to hot. I had a headache for three days straight and had morning sickness everyday. Yesterday & today I feel AMAZING again, except I slept to much this past week and can't sleep now :p.

Size: The baby is about the size of your hand with your fingers spread open (give or take)

Symptoms: I started feeling my baby a couple of days ago. I thought I had to go poop, but nope it was just baby moving around in there. I've felt it only a handful of times so far. I can't wait until I can feel the babe more often. OHHHHH and how exciting will it be when J can feel kicks. Can't wait!!!

I have always had these little red dots on my body and face. I think they are popped blood vessels that pool and make a little dot. Well since I have been pregnant they have taken over my body. I really hope they go away after pregnancy. Otherwise I will be a red freak. My rosacea (self diagnosed) has been full blown since my wedding. I look like a rudolph. I need to invest in some gooooood foundation.

Nose bleeds are happening more frequently now. I now know to always have kleenex in the car because it's awful using whatever scrap paper you can scrounge up. 

Cravings: I want everything in my belly. I am actually getting tired of the actual act of chewing. This baby loves its food, even more than me! I will eat a full meal and then ten minutes later my belly is making the loudest sounds begging for more food even though I am not hungry. I will eat a banana and think I have satisfied the need and 20 minutes later my belly is screaming at me. Good thing my biggest craving is fruit, or we would be in trouble.

Weight: I have no idea what I weigh at the moment, but I am thinking it's quite a bit more then at my last appointment.

Oh and my hair isn't falling out anymore. Yaaaaaaayyyy!!! It's just falling out as much as it did pre-preg. Woop Woop

Almost half way there now & feeling fabulous! :D
