17 weeks!

How Far Along: 17 weeks... The size of an Onion!
Gender: Unknown
Weight Gain: -3 lbs. I can't believe I'm halfway with no weight gain!
Maternity Clothes: Most definitely! I bought a new pair of maternity shorts this week!
Sleep: Better!
Best moment this week: The pool opening up! Woooo hoo! I also got a new ring sling... My very first wrap conversion ring sling, which means it's made out of a woven wrap! It's super comfortable, and Zoey loves it!
Miss anything? Wine!
Movement: Lots and lots! I've felt a few barrel rolls, and Thomas got to feel a few as well!
Cravings: Still milk! I've also started putting almond milk in my cereal... Delicious!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: The itching has subsided for the most part, thank goodness. It's still there, but not as bad. I am definitely starting to feel more "pregnant"... I did way too much a few days ago and paid for it dearly!
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Very happy!
Looking forward to: Our gender reveal... Only 11 days!

16 weeks

A little late, but at least the picture was taken on time! hah!
How Far Along: 16 weeks... baby is the size of an avocado! 
Gender: Unknown
Weight Gain: -4 lbs... Holding steady! So proud of myself! I've made it a point to eat healthier and stay active, and it's really helping!
Maternity Clothes: Absolutely! I can't wait to break out some of my cute dresses! 
Sleep: It depends on the day. Sometimes it's great, and sometimes it really sucks!
Best moment this week: Getting my lab results back that are NEGATIVE for Cholestasis (for now)!
Miss anything? Wine!
Movement: Definitely, and they're starting to get even stronger! A few of them I have almost felt from the outside!
Cravings: Milk... I've always loved it, but now I can drink it like it's going out of style.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: Still pretty itchy, but it varies by day. I've been getting some sun outside lately and that seems to be helping. Also using a lot of my Lush Dream Cream... It has oat milk in it so it's helped to soothe my raw skin where I've scratched. I read that apparently with Cholestasis, sometimes the itching starts before the levels start to go up... So I'll just have to wait it out and see.
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In, but the belly button ring is gone now. 
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy! The warmer weather and sunshine is most definitely helping!
Looking forward to: The pool! Our pool finally opened up a few days ago, so we're all excited to go swimming!

15 weeks pregnant

How Far Along:
15 weeks... Baby is the size of a Navel Orange!
Gender: Unknown... Only 4 more weeks to wait!
Weight Gain: -4 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Definitely! My regular shirts are starting to get a little snug, so I've been pulling out more and more maternity shirts! 
Sleep: So-so.
Best moment this week: More movement! And, I finally had a dream about the little one... In my dream, we had a little girl!
Miss anything? Wine!
Movement: Lots of little movements that are getting more and more frequent! At least once a day, if not more.
Cravings: Almonds! Totally random, but delicious!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope! 
Symptoms: The million dollar question. So, I've started itching. If you read my posts during my pregnancy with Zoey, you'll remember that toward the end, I was diagnosed with Cholestasis... A condition where the liver productivity slows down and starts backing up bile acids into the blood stream. I have an 80-90% chance of developing it again, and over the last few days, I've developed a lot of itching (which is one of the major signs). I had blood work done on Wednesday, and the test takes a week. I should know by Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm not happy about it.
Labor signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy, but anxious about the impending lab results. 
Looking forward to: Our anatomy scan in June, so I can start shopping and sewing our cloth diaper stash!
