Bump Update: 17 Weeks

How far along? 17 weeks! Baby is starting to develop it's sense of hearing!
Total weight gain/loss: I think I'm about + 4 pounds now.
Maternity clothes? Still mostly normal clothes. I did order a few things this week- we will see how they work!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: A few restless nights here and there where I cannot get comfortable once I wake up. The main complaint is being comfortable lying on my side. My hip starts to hurt after a while. However, that doesn't mean I'm not tired: I took 2 naps on Saturday! Holy moly! 
Best moment this week: Feeling a definite baby kick. It was the sweetest moment ever! See below for more on that.
Have you told family and friends: Yep!
Miss Anything? Nope.
Movement: I finally felt what was very distinctly a little baby kick! Twice in a row. I had gone out for Chinese on Friday night, and once I got back to our hotel and was lying down I felt it. After telling my FIL, he said it was a karate kick since I had eaten Chinese! Ha! Since then, I have felt the baby kick when I wake up in the middle of the night for a minute or so. Stephen got to feel it last night too! I think we may have a night owl on our hands!
Food cravings: I feel like I have had a sweet tooth this week. Let's just say my Saturday morning Krispy Kreme donut was the best tasting thing I've had in months.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Certain smells and food commercials {Burger King} really turn me off. Other than that no.
Have you started to show yet: I think its slowly getting bigger! 
Gender prediction: We find out next week!! We are so, so excited.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and looking forward to a lot.
Looking forward to: Everything. I'm a little nervous about our appointment next week- I hope and pray everything is going to be just fine with our little baby. Excited about finding out the gender and sharing that moment between the two of us, then our family and friends.

Other moments from this week:

 {Headed out on a dinner date with my parents}

{Krispy Kreme. Enough said.}

 {I pulled out a few Halloween decorations and found Dixie's costume from last year. If she only knew how cute she looked in it!}

{My fortune hours before I felt a baby kick!
 Even though I think it's spelled wrong, it was still a fun coincidence}

This has been the most exciting week yet after feeling the baby move!

My favorite "baby time" was laying in bed early morning and feeling them wiggle around. Truly one of the BEST things ever in life. Can't wait to learn the gender, friend.
