17 weeks!

How far along/ how many days/weeks left:
17 weeks along!
23 weeks to go! 

weight gain: 3 lbs

maternity clothes: wearing comfier pants & baggier shirts. Picked up a few maternity pieces at Ross yesterday and my amazing sister picked up & sent down, a big ole box of gently used and inexpensive maternity clothes! Some her's, some I picked out on her FB group " get-R- gone". I'm needing some stretchy type pants, like I'm wearing above. I'm trying to avoid " leggings" and sweats, but it's getting harder and harder.

how I feel: This week has been one of the most challenging. I've lost some circulation in my left hand at night and now during the day too. So I wake up a LOT at night to switch positions. It's hard not getting solid night's rest anymore. But I guess I'm just getting ready for baby.

what  I miss: a full nights rest.

sleep: see " how I feel" 

cravings:  nothing this week!

movement: I haven't felt the baby move, but I can for sure feel a newer pressure in my abdomen/ uterus down in the lower right side, almost all the time. I know baby is down there, and I can feel it more now!

mamma thoughts: because of the pain in my wrists, I scheduled my very first maternity massage, and boy was that fantastic. I will for sure be scheduling another, in the next few months!

additional info: Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
