17 weeks!

The bump has arrived!

I had to take a selfie (which might be the first that I've taken and posted on this little blog) because the hubs didn't get home until 10:30ish last night from getting pigs ready for the fair. He's also still in bed this morning and I didn't want to wake him up just to take my picture, although his alarm has gone off twice since I've sat down to eat breakfast and type this. Oh well. He worked hard yesterday and he can snooze all he wants. I also had to insert the picture into the post from my phone and didnt want to take the time to email myself the nice PicMonkey edited and labeled picture just to put it in here. Our laptop acts like a total jackass sometimes.

Baby size: Onion (I really wish the bump used better comparisons sometimes!)
Any symptoms?  back pain and tired. I'm also losing my mind. The constant hunger is coming back.
Cravings? I've been wanting a cheeseburger from Dairy Queen or Burger King, but have resisted.
Favorite part this week? Danny testing out names. He's been testing one per day and throwing them into casual conversation. It's adorable.
Least favorite part this week? My sleep has sucked.
Boy or Girl? Still feeling boy, but I also feel like I'm wrong.
Names? We've basically decided to wait until we see the little one after he/she arrives to settle on a name. I'd like to go into it with a couple narrowed down though and then see which fits the baby best.

It's been a pretty good week and not much has happened. Next week will fly by with it being fair week. I'm probably going to gain about 20 pounds in next week alone due to the delicious friedness that lines the walkways.

That's all for now. Like I said, not much has happened this week, which is fine with me. There was too much excitement a few weeks ago for my liking, so I'll take this.


  1. seriously, I'm so impressed that you are resisting a craving. if I had the will power to do that, i might not have gained 5 million lbs already....
