It's a...

(Crappy Iphone pic and awkward angle but oh well!)

Our boy was not shy yesterday and showed us the money shot easily!  I KNEW it was going to be a boy.  I just had a feeling.  As the oldest of four girls and always wanting a little brother, I can't wait to have a little boy running around!  My husband went a little nutty buying a bunch of clothes for his little man but it was awesome to see him so excited.  He walked around the office the whole day showing everyone the ultrasounds pictures.  Needless to say, we are thrilled!  I now pray and hope that my little boy, Lucas, is healthy and well.

17 Week Preggo Update

Weight Gain?:  I gained one pound since my January appointment.  Right after my appointment yesterday, I inhaled a thanksgiving style lunch then burgers for dinner so my next appointment will more than likely see a larger weight gain!

Maternity Clothes?:  Yes, yes, and yes.  Thankfully, I had some gift cards to use up and clothes that were gifted to me over the holidays so I think I'm set on maternity clothes for a while.  

Symptoms?:  Acid reflux and allergies but other than that, I feel great!  I'm so happy that, hopefully, the sickness has gone away.  I feel like my old self again.  I even started going to the gym which helps me keep up my energy.

Sleep?:  Same as 13 weeks so I copy pasted:  "Yes and no.  I sleep in spurts of 2 hours here or 3 hours there.  My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me."

Do I miss anything?:  Not really.

Movement?:  It's hard to describe but it feels like popcorn popping or a fishy swimming around lol  No real kicks yet though.

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  Just smells still.  I can't stand air fresheners nor the smell of food!

Food cravings?:  Japanese food, cuties oranges, lollipops, bread, bubblegum ice-cream (even though I can't flipping find any! Ugh)...

Have you started to show?:  Belly is out!

Boy or a Girl?:  BOY!!

Best Moment This Week?:  Finding out that our little baby is a boy and giving him a name...Lucas!
