So I have a friend who did weekly baby and belly updates. I'm going to try and be that on top of things :-)

So this is baby bump week 10. I took this the day of our first ultrasound.

This is my baby bump today at 17 weeks. So obviously not much of a difference.

How far along? Today I am 17 weeks and 1 day!

Size of the Baby: Our little baby bean isn't really a bean anymore but is the size of an onion! So about 5.5 inches.

 Maternity Clothes: Yes just the pants and that's only because I enjoy the lack of a zipper. Also I bought a pair from Motherhood Maternity and they are super comfy, like wearing yoga pants but not looking lazy!

Weight gain: Too much! I have gained 10 lbs. Not sure where it's gone though since everyone is still telling me I don't look prego... But I did get lazy with working out due to my new busy church calling, Halloween and babysitting massive amounts of dogs. 

Sleep: So far I only wake up once a night to use the potty. But some nights after I potty I can't sleep for another 3 hours... It's weird.

Stretch marks: Thank goodness no!

Best moment of the week: Halloween! I love that my husband gets excited about carving pumpkins, making Halloween themed treats and coordinating costumes.

Movement: No, sometimes I think I So I have a friend who did weekly baby and belly updates. I'm going to try and be that on top of things :-)

Symptoms: HUNGER! I feel hungry 24/7. But other than that I barely feel pregnant.

Food Cravings: Cheese, bread, top ramen, corn dogs, sushi (yes you can have it if it's cooked!), apples with peanut butter and Shock Tarts. The Shock Tart craving is unfortunate because no one seems to sell them anymore.

Gender: Next week! Brian still votes boy and I think a girl would be fun but mostly I'm just hoping the ultrasound shows a healthy baby.

Belly button in or out: In.

Anything make you queasy or sick: Not eating consistently, ground beef, pizza (sad day) and I can only eat fish in sushi not just a regular piece of it.

Labor Signs: No just "round ligament pain".

Wedding ring on or off: On.

What I miss:Cute, form fitting church clothes. We still haven't told people at church so I'm hiding it still.

What I am looking forward to: Knowing the gender and feeling movement.

Nursery: No but I bought a cute bassinet that I'm going to make over!

Emotions: Normal so far... I guess I got lucky and missed the crazy pregnancy emotions so far.

  1. If you want to avoid getting stretch marks use biosilk oil. I swear by it. I have had three kids and have no stretch marks Yah!! Rub it all over your body. It is amazing. You look so cute. I can't believe you are having a baby. I still remember you as being so little. I am so excited for you. Congrats

  2. So excited for you, Kenna! If you have a girl then your baby, mine and Aubrey's can all be friends. :) And they'll all have been born within 6-7 months of each other! And you might have missed the crazy emotions so far, but don't worry, they're coming! I didn't think I was emotional either. But I'm almost 35 weeks along and in this last week I've cried over Jordan not loving the dinner I made, spilling my milk (that was early this morning after not being able to sleep all night) and missing a $20 convenience fee warning for a bill I paid online. Not things I would normally cry about, especially the milk. :) Fun, fun, fun!

  3. all i want to eat is cheese and top ramen too! that's so funny. you look cute. my belly is huge and i'm 2 weeks behind you :)

  4. Bethany says the 10 lbs must be in your bootie because you actually have one - and Mikesells don't have booties;)
