17 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 17 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby Hamm is the size of an onion -
according to my book, the baby is putting on the fat now! :)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +10lbs - same as last week.
Maternity Clothes: 90% of the time I'm in maternity clothes.  I still have a few regular shirts that fit ok. 
Gender: Unknown....my gut says it's another boy right now though.  Jarrod still says girl.  
Gavin has been saying girl a lot more, but switched back to boy last night.
Movement: I'm starting to randomly feel little butterflies in my stomach but haven't felt much this week.  I'm really looking forward to that!
Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good - Jarrod isn't a fan of all the extra pillows in the bed, though.  
What I miss:  Not much - trying to enjoy this one since it will probably be our last.
Cravings: Spicy foods, bbq potato chips, french fries.
Symptoms:  The hip/sciatic pain is really bothering me.  It's something I've dealt with since having Gavin, so I blame him.  :)  I'm fine in the morning, but limping by evening.
Best Moment this week: Having friends over for dinner on Saturday.  Amy is 5 weeks ahead of me, so we had a good time swapping stories and sharing food cravings.  :)

Some other updates from this weekend - we had a really great time this weekend, even though we didn't do much.  Amy and Chris came over on Saturday to grill out and Gavin and Lucas had a blast playing in the backyard.  That is definitely my favorite part of our house here - Gavin loves playing outside!  It's so nice that he has a fenced in yard to play in.  Sunday, I enjoyed 3 hours of shopping - ALONE!  It's so nice to have a few hours to myself.  Then we went out again together and drove by the preschool we looked at again and Gavin was so excited to see "his preschool."  I think we're going to drop off our check to register him this week.  I also got a call that my memory card is ready and they were able to recover some pictures!  I won't know which ones or how many until I pick it up, which I'll either do later tonight or on Wednesday.  I'm excited to see what they found.  :)

This pregnancy is going so quickly, Jenn! At least it seems that way to me!

Way too fast! I'd love for it to slow down some.
