Better Late than Never, Right?

Happy almost Tuesday! 

Hope you guys are having a swell week so far! Before I bore you to death with a bumpdate that I should have posted last week, I just wanted to say, "THANK YOU." Seriously - thanks for the support, for reading my jumbled thoughts, and for being awesome in general. You guys are amazing. 

Now before I get all teary-eyed and crazy hormonal on you, let's talk about my ever-growing belly. Or you can just click away if you don't care (I won't be offended. HA).
How Far Along: 17 weeks 6 days (when these were taken on Sunday, Dec. 9)
Size of the Baby: ONION!!! 
Maternity Clothes: Nope, not yet. I'm going to have to cave soon, though. I do have a BeBand, and it helps SOOO much. 
Stretch marks: Nope.
Weight gain/loss: 7 lbs 
Sleep: sleeping through the night... always take a potty break at about 5 a.m.
Best Moment of the Week: Music Time with the baby... We started it about halfway through week 17, and by Sunday, baby started to respond and kick a little when we'd put the speakers to my belly! 
Movement: S/he moves quite a bit around 3-4 in the afternoon.
Symptoms: None! Okay, dizziness. But that's not bad, right?! 
Food Cravings: SUGAR. SWEETS. Someone tell this baby to CHILL.
Gender: Find out Dec. 21st. My guess is that it's a girl. 
Belly Button in or out: In.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I have to drive wherever we go - I can't be passenger, or I get REALLY sick.
Labor Signs: Nope.
Wedding ring on or off: On.
What I miss: Being able to workout harder.
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender!!
Nursery: It's pretty much completely done. Oh, except furniture. That might be important. I do have a crib, glider, and changing table/dresser picked out, though!
Emotions: MUCH better. Still not normal, but they have finally started to get under control.
Stupid things I have done: Running over our mailbox. Yes, that is baby's fault. 

Stay tuned for a list of things that no one tells you about pregnancy (from a total non-expert) sometime this week. I promise to scar you for life.

I love your bump updates :) I'm excited for you to find out the gender! It made it a lot more real for me once we knew she's a girl.

Rosie said...

Glad your hormones are settling down for ya. My colleague at work is 8 months and very tearful at the mo. It might be the approaching maternity leave!

Dearest Lou said...

Cute TINY bump Alyx! I'm excited to find out the gender too, I'm also looking forward to your post later this week.. sounds juicy. haha

Just cave and buy maternity pants...you'll be so comfy.

Ali Mills said...

I love you and your preggers self! I can't wait to see what you write about what to not expect hahahaha

My weekly update told me the baby weighed as much as a large Jimica. What the heck is that even!? How is that supposed to be a reference point? Anyhow, enjoy your ninja, and don't buy maternity pants online. Mine have never fit right, I can't WAIT to get back to regular jeans!

This is great! I look forward to you imprinting bad memories of pregnancy on my mind later this week!

By the way, a co-worker of mine told me yesterday that she's about 4 months preggo with her own kid. Which means I'm surrounded be pregnant people. 0_0

Elsha said...

I wish I had a baby to blame for all the times I've ran over mailboxes, you lucky girl;)

Lourdes Echagarruga said...

WHen I have a baby...it'll be a ninja. You are kind of making me want a baby :)

PS I crave sugar and sweets everyday and I am not pregnant! :)

XO Lourdes

Are you sitting down? Your emotions will never be in control again, you are growing a ninja and becoming a mom!

RadiantKristen said...

Ammon is convinced that our first will be a girl, so I'm going to guess girl with you... that way when they're only a year apart in age they can still be best friends! Can't believe how much the Little Creature is growing and developing =)

Azia said...

you look beautiful! Oh pregnancy... I don't miss it. I have a few friends who just *loved* being pregnant... but not me. I like alcohol and sleeping on my tummy way too much! :) The baby part is so worth it though. Are you going to find out the gender or wait until you give birth?

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Eep you're so close to finding out the gender, I'm psyched for you!

kimberrleigh said...

Love these updates! Except I feel like you keep having to walk further! haha

Genna said...

Your itty bitty bump is so cute. Glad things are calming down. I also cannot wait to find out the gender and I have no relation to the baby whatsoever lol

Kassi Mortensen said...

I think a girl is a good guess for you too. :)

Katrin said...

I think it's a girl too!

Evani Gatsby said...

Look at your cute little baby bump!! I love it. Not your baby, because that might be weird considering you barely know me. I love you being preggers because it's cute. Okay, now I'm just rambling.

Eve Myers said...

I think it's going to be a boy, but that's just me! Can't wait to find out and see what you name the baby!

Whitney said...

Not gonna lie, I'm really looking forward to your post about pregnancy! I'm seriously so not prepared for when that time comes...

Brittany said...

You are so cute!! And I love your little update/picture/awesome thing at the top :)

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...
