17 weeks

- This week the babies are the size of onions, around 5 inches and about 6 oz!
- I have grown out of the majority of my clothes and am officially wearing maternity pants
- My belly is 34 inches and I have gained 15 lbs. My belly button popped out! I have an outie
- I have been able to feel the babies moving around for the last week or so. I wasn't sure at first as it just kind of feels like a little bubble in there or little flutters.
- I switched from working four 10 hour shifts to four 8 hour shifts at work
- I really haven't been having too many weird cravings yet. I just want macaroni and cheese and chocolate milk a lot :)
We actually got some sun yesterday (my day off!) and it was SO nice. I really wanted to get outside so I went to survey the yard situation after the long winter. We have one little corner of the yard right next to the house that is shaded by the house and it apparently filled with weeds over the winter. I pulled all the weeds out only to find that there is no grass left there anymore! Just dirt and some patches of grass. Poor lawn! We might need to find some kind of plant that grows in the shade to replace the grass. Anyway, I am looking forward to the rest of spring! Normally I can't wait for summer, but it can take its time this year since I am going to be quite large and don't know how I will handle the heat.
And lastly, I have a wonderful hubby who knows just what I like. He came home from work with a gerber daisy and my favorite Haagen Dazs ice cream White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle!!
