17 Weeks

I'm late on this post - sorry. We were busy all weekend with real estate showings and zoo outings and church and springing forward and napping. It was exhausting. I am feeling pretty good. There is not much to report other than my belly is bigger. I'm sleeping pretty lousy (all of that peeing in the middle of the night). And I'm struggling with terrible heartburn. Meh.

Beatrice has had a cold for a week now. She has been pretty good considering she doesn't feel well. But during the difficult, whiny moments, I catch myself wondering if I can handle 2 at once. Did I really think this through? What will it be like to have a newborn and a 2 year old? Can I do it? Obviously, there is no turning back now, but I can't help but wonder if I have what it takes to mommy 2 little ones simultaneously. I am pretty good at doing other things simultaneously, like walking with both legs and talking while holding a telephone. But 2 kids at once? I may be in over my head.


Weight gain: No new gain, as far as I know.
Stretch marks: None.
Movement: Yes! Lots of kicks and a few big movements that feel like rolls.
Cravings: Bananas and peanut butter. 2 foods that I hate alone, but man, they're delicious together.
Sleep: Terrible. I wake up at least once a night having to pee so badly. It has only just begun.
Best moment this week: Ordering my maternity skinny jeans.
Gender: Feeling strongly about a boy. And I think I'm excited about it.
Labor signs: None.
Belly button: In. But give it a month.
What I miss: A bladder sufficient enough to hold a night's worth of pee.
What I'm looking forward to: My birthday this weekend!
Weekly wisdom: Boys aren't so bad when you and your husband agree on a cool name.
Milestones: Pregnancy heartburn has begun. Yay me.
