How far along? 17 weeks

Total weight gain:  Not a clue, I don't currently own any scales! 

Maternity clothes?  I haven't bought any so far but my clothes are starting to feel too small now, so maybe it's time to shop!

Stretch marks? I've had stretch marks for a while on my stomach thanks to sudden weight gain at university, but nothing new so far. I've been covering myself in stretch mark creams, and I think the one's I have already are actually fading a little! Fingers crossed I won't get any new ones!

Sleep:  I have been going to bed incredibly early for the past few weeks, and this week has been no exception. I can't imagine being up until past midnight anymore! This week I have been waking up in the middle of the night, unable to get back to sleep for an hour or so which is really frustrating!

Best moment this week: Feeling a couple of twitches which both Jono and I suspect could be our little bean!!

Worst moment this week:  Back ache, exhaustion and being over emotional - nothing new there!

Miss anything?  I'm missing alcohol, which I didn't think I would. I'd love and ice cold strawberry and lime Koppaberg!

Movement: As mentioned above, there's been some twitches which I think is the baby!

Food cravings:  This week I'm a bit more partial to apples and mars bars - one healthy and one not! And Chinese takeaway, I would eat it for every meal if I could!

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Burgers. They used to be my favourite food, but now they make me feel sick.

Gender: Only 4 weeks until we find out!

Labor signs: None

Symptoms:  After thinking my sickness had gone away, I've been sick 3 times this week. I've been feeling a bit better emotionally, and feeling more myself again which is nice! And my back hasn't hurt as much, and I've had less headaches. I'm loving the second trimester so far!

Belly button in or out?  In - in fact its so far in I don't think it will ever pop!

Happy or moody most of the time?  Starting to feel happy again!

Looking forward to:  Finding out the gender in 4 weeks - I'm counting down! And finding a new house! We've started having a look now, so hopefully we will find our perfect home!
