Bumpdate- 16 and 17 Weeks

Baby's Growth: Currently I am 17 weeks and right baby is the size of a pomegranate! It's bones are starting to harden, the brain is now controlling the heartbeat at a steady rhythm instead of just random intervals, and the arms and legs should have reached more human like proportions compared to the head. 

Boy or Girl: Only 2 more weeks until we find out! I've really started praying hard that we will be able to see everything at our next appointment! I am also nervous to make sure the anatomy scan goes well on that day and everything looks healthy and normal.
"Little bit, now listen to mama, you are not allowed to cross your legs on Feb. 27th!" 

Cravings: I don't think I could survive right now without mixed fruit cut up from the deli, Special K granola mixed with chobani vanilla yogurt, and gatorade. I drink one small gatorade with dinner and I look forward to it every day:)

How I'm Feeling: Headaches and weird dreams have been recently occuring this past week. I've never had a migraine before, and I know I'm not having them now, but they are definitly the worst headaches I have ever had. The kind where it starts around noon one day, goes on all through the night, and you wake up the next morning still with it. Just a constant pain in my brain:) Weird dreams have also started. I dreamed just the other night that I was teaching and we had a fire alarm, but we were all trapped and couldn't get out. 

Favorite Moment This Week: I found my dream pair of maternity jeans! They fit perfectly, feel like I'm wearing yoga pants, and are super stylish. They are skinny and I can easily roll them up into cute capris. Also, girls yall will totally understand this, but they make but bum look nice and perky:) I was afraid maternity jeans would be fumpy, wouldn't fit my little short legs, or make me look like an old lady.  Old navy, skinny pant, normal leg maternity jeans is where it's at! 

Thankful For: One of the joys of living in NOLA is Mardi Gras. I am really thankful that we get a week off for Mardi Gra and one for Spring Break. I'm counting down the school days, only 8 and 1/2 for me, to make it until that sweet blesse'd week off!
