WEEK 17:  27 Feb-6 March 2019
Hi everyone!  I hope your week was fantastic.  I enjoyed celebrating Honeybee's birthday and am looking forward to anatomy scans soon.  It's time to give our weekly bump update.  Hope you enjoy it.

How far along: 17 weeks
How big is baby: the size of a pear 

Gender: Unknown (Team Green)

Events of this week: Honeybee’s Sleepover

Symptoms: Hungry.  My appetite is starting to improve.  New symptom is waking in the night with the room spinning and feeling as if I will pass out.  In the morning, my hands are swollen.  By the time I get to work though…all is well.

Exercise/Activity: Nope.

Sleep: Bathroom visits are still a thing.  See symptoms above.

Maternity clothes: Yes.  I’m wearing them quite regularly with pre-pregnancy pieces interspersed.  But I’m definitely about to be all in maternity soon.

Stretch marks: Yep.  

Belly Button: In.

Food cravings: No

Food aversions: The smell of coffee still bothers me.

Movement: Yes J

Best Moment of the Week: The look on Honeybee’s face during her birthday weekend.

Worst Moment of the Week: Finding out about the back to back passings within our church family.

What I’m looking forward to:  My anatomy skin next week.

What I’m nervous about/praying for: Praying for a healthy baby, for those who are suffering and in want, for our nation

What I miss:  I actually thought it would be nice to be able to have a glass of wine last week.  It was a fleeting thought, but there still.
