17 weeks

(ignore the blue tape. painter is coming tomorrow)

Pregnancy Highlights:

How many weeks: 17

Size of baby: The size of an turnip

Total weight gain: 5 pounds

Maternity Clothes: Mostly maternity pants and some shirts. Regular dresses and stretchy clothing.

Gender: It's a BOY! His name is Judd. We are still so pleasantly surprised.

Movement: I felt the baby move twice so far. Found out I have an anterior placenta which means I won't be able to feel real solid movements until around 18-20 weeks. Poop:(

Sleep: I am up to use the bathroom about 3 times a night and have insomnia but the dreams have gotten WEIRD this week. And scary. I HATE dreams where they involve Ava being hurt!!

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach.

Cravings: Baked potatoes, peaches, salads, and ice cream. Also craving tortillas and queso. And today I have been craving a burger SO BAD! Hungry much? Ha!

Symptoms: Having lots of headaches but found out today that it's because I'm not drinking enough water. I STINK at drinking liquids. Also pretty tired lately. Need to get my iron checked I'm afraid:(

Best moment this week: Wouldn't this mean the best moment last week? Anyhow, best moment LAST week was finding out the baby's gender.

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
