My Pregnancy: 17 weeks

How far along: 17 weeks 
Total weight gain:  4 lbs. 
Maternity clothes: No, but in desperate need of pants. My jeans are no longer comfortable, even unzipped and unbuttoned! Mainly when I'm sitting down. So my leggings have been my best friend this week. Unfortunately, I don't live in a town where maternity clothing is popular, so I have to drive 30-90 min. for good shopping. 
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Sleeping well and enjoying it. :)
Pregnancy symptoms: I've really struggled with headaches and migraines this week. Not sure if it's all pregnancy related, but it's been rough, and I've been very sick because of them. I've been throwing up from the pain. I'm looking for a chiropractor in my area. Nothing else has worked, and it feels like my neck is out, so maybe that will help. 
Best moment of this week: I really haven't had many good moments this week, just because I've been so under the weather. However, I did pick a date for our gender reveal party and have been planning that! So excited! Oct. 22 can't come soon enough!!! 
Miss anything: Well, I miss not having so many headaches! And I also miss having a bigger bladder. :) 
Movement: Yes!!! I felt my sweet baby on Thursday! I was finally certain the movement I felt was the baby. :) Felt it again on the same side Friday. Today I played some classical music for the baby and felt some movements. 
Food cravings/aversions: Same as last week. In fact, I have to admit to something. A local bistro I love going to has a great Caesar salad. I went frequently and ordered that salad with a soup. Well, they stopped selling it during the summer, and of course I've been craving Caesar salads, so I've resorted to calling them at least once a month to see when they're bringing it back on their menu. Good news... yesterday the owner said they'll be offering it again starting next week! Yep, I'm a happy lady. :)  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Just these darn migraines! Otherwise, I'm hardly nauseous anymore. Occasionally in the evenings, but not everyday. 
Gender prediction: Thinking BOY. Just a feeling, so we'll see. Although, if I were going off how different I feel this pregnancy, and how different my symptoms are, I'd have to guess girl. But since I know each pregnancy can be different, no matter the gender, I'm not hanging on to that. 
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: This week, just feeling blah. I'm happy, but haven't been well, so I'm not my normal cheery self. 
Upcoming appointments/events: No appointments until Oct. My brother arrives tomorrow for a visit though! Looking forward to having him here and hanging out as a family.
