17 Weeks & 4 days

How far along:  17 weeks & 4 days.
How big is baby: about 5 inches long
Maternity clothes:  yes but I only have a few so I rely on stretchy pants and big tshirts.
Sleep: Not good.  My hips go numb so I'm going to try the recliner out tonight
Best moment of the week:  People asking me how the babies are (complete strangers)
Food aversions:  Mexican
Food cravings: I do not have many cravings, just want to eat ALL the time.
Symptoms:  the belly getting bigger, headaches, indigestion,
Movement:  I feel stuff and think it is the babies
What I’m looking forward to: Christmas this weekend
What I miss:  Nothing other than sleep
Next appt: Friday I have an appointment with the doc

Tomorrow is 4 months until my delivery date, I can not believe it is going by so fast.  Also two years ago tomorrow I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I didn't know for long before I miscarried but it was one of the best days of my life.

I have a prayer request, Jessica is having a hard time right now and really needs the support.  Thank you everyone.

GOOD NEWS - just got off the phone with the OB's office (to ask about sinus meds) and finally got the courage to tell them I did not want to see the OB I saw the last time. She asked what the docs name is and I said I had no idea.  So a few seconds later she is laughing I'm like great, I felt horrible for doing this in the first place and now she is laughing.  She then says I understand why you do not want to see this doctor again, it was just a fluke that you saw him in the first place and if there is a chance he is in the office again you probably will not see him again.  Good now I do not have to worry about that anymore.

Four months left??? That's going to FLY by!

Great news about not having to see the crappy doc again - less stress for you!

Merry Christmas!
