Week 17 Update

I can't believe another week has come and gone! I'm getting so close to the halfway point that I can almost smell it. Overall it was a good week with little to know pregnancy symptoms so I can't complain.
This weekend was nice and relaxing and gave me a chance to catch up on grocery shopping so we can start eating at home! We are the worst at eating out, especially during the week, so I meal planned and bought groceries to make some quick and easy crock pot meals. If all goes well, I will share those recipes!

How far along?: 17 weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of an: Onion
Total weight gain/loss: 13lbs and holding.
The Bump: I'm starting to notice a subtle change, but I think it will still be another few weeks before I will look pregnant
Symptoms: Feeling pretty good!
Food Cravings: No cravings, just a bigger appetite.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope
Sleep: Been sleeping pretty good these last few weeks. I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.
What I miss: For the first time this week, I really missed having a glass (or two) of wine after work.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: YES! Still need to settle on a middle name, but I think we will be announcing it in the next few weeks.
Gender Prediction: Girl!
Movement: Nothing obvious yet. I think I'll know when I feel it.
Maternity Clothes: Probably 50/50. I just really feel more comfortable in maternity clothes and that is key right now.
Labor Signs: None.
Best Moment of the Week: Starting to feel a bit more pregnant and a bit less fat.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: My next appointment where we will get to see our little girl again.
