How far along: 17 weeks!
Total weight gain:  7.2
Maternity clothes:  just the belly band and dresses, but the belly band is beginning to suck!
Best moment of the week:   getting a call from the perinatologist (high risk doc) saying they need to move my ultrasound 5 days sooner!! We get to find the sex out in 2 weeks!
Food cravings: fruit loops
Food aversions: nothing really. 
boobs sore- still there, less prevelant though
cramps- not much this week, week 16 was a lot of cramps for 2 days
tiredness- getting tired a lot more.. I don't like that
irritability- back to normal. :)
acne- pre pregnancy I think
bloat- I am going to say its all baby now. :) 
 burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- all gone!
Movement: Still not sure if that is what I felt. Hopefully sometime soon!
Gender: We find out in 2 weeks!  
What I’m looking forward to: feeling kicks! Seeing my baby on the ultrasound! Finding out if its a boy or girl!
 What I miss:  I guess I am missing my energy, but I think its more allergies than pregnancy. But I love my growing belly!
Next appt: August 17th! Baby ultrasound and also a doctor appointment immediately after that! :)
