Due date update & 17 weeks!

We found out at our early dating ultrasound that deuce was measuring 2 days ahead of my estimated due date of September 25th, as determined by my charting. If you aren't familiar with charting, it's awesome. Had I not been charting during my first post-partum cycle, I wouldn't have gotten pregnant! I would have been sitting back on cycle day 27 waiting to take a pregnancy test, instead know ;)  In the same vein, my doctor would {mistakenly} think I am 2 weeks further along in this pregnancy than I actually am. Eeek!

Anyway, since my doctor will be going by the September 23rd due date, I'm going to start using it as well. So, that means I'll get to take my weekly update pictures on Sunday nights and post on Monday instead of taking them on Tuesday nights, and posting on Wednesday.

No more bare belleh photos. It looked a little freakish tonight.
How far along? 17 weeks

Weight gain/loss: 120 lbs. Up 2 lbs. so far.

Feeling: I'm STILL sick, and it's pretty miserable. I think it's because I'm not taking good enough care of myself (eating enough, getting enough sleep, etc.) Time to make myself a priority this week.

Maternity clothes? Anyone have any good recommendations for maternity PJs? My cute flannel sets from Victoria's Secret are getting a little tight in the waist.

Sleep: Carina is still waking about once a night due to her also being sick, and some killer teething. I've been trying to get to bed earlier to get some extra sleep, but it's not going so well.

Food cravings: Krispy Kreme donuts. I was sad to learn that there aren't any around here :(

Movement? I mostly feel deuce in the early mornings while I sit on the couch and drink my coffee.

What I miss? Beer. M had a few while watching the Flyers games this weekend and it made me jealous.

Best moment this week: Getting my smartphone back! More to come on this - and some consumer tips - later this week.

What I'm looking forward to: It's supposed to be super nice out this week. Hoping to make it to the park for some playdates!

Next Appointment: April 20th.

Milestones: Baby's fingers and toenails are beginning to grow this week!

I think that 17 weeks last time was when I really thought you could tell that was pregnant (as opposed to chubby). Still trying to figure out when that happened this time around.
