17 Weeks!

How far along: 17 Weeks
Total weight gain: Still about 0 to -1.  I've been able to eat quite a bit more this past week, so I'm hoping I'll actually see the numbers go up a bit. 
Maternity clothes: Belly band here and there.  Still lots of summer dresses. I'm going to be interested to see what school clothes have to be adjusted in the next week as I head back.
Stretch marks: None
Sleep: Sleep was better this week.  Waking up with lots of headaches lately.  I guess that's just the second trimester. 
Symptoms: Growing belly, peeing all the time (they lie when they say you pee less in the second trimester!!!), headaches
Best moment this week: Having friends tell me that I'm actually starting to look pregnant!
Miss anything: Not much!
Movement: I think I've been feeling the little flutters on the inside.  I'm not sure but it feels like gas which is what everyone says!  Hopefully it will get stronger soon so that I will know for sure.
Food Cravings: I was drinking a lot of Gatorade, but as of today it doesn't taste good anymore!  I really liked the french fries this week.
Anything make you sick or queasy: beef ground beef really (steak is still good), Sam's Club at taste testing time, raw seafood
Gender: We find out on July 30 (got it moved up a week! YAY!) I had my first baby dream this week - We were having a gender reveal party and it was a boy!  We'll have to see if my dream is correct!
Belly Button in or out: in
Wedding rings on or off: on
Mood: Mostly happy, cranky when hot or tired
Looking forward to: Getting into my new classroom - which means really getting to work on the nursery! Going to St. Louis this weekend to see my first Cardinals game at Busch Stadium! We are marking things off our pre-baby wish list!
