17-18 Weeks!

I got a chance to fly back to Nebraska to visit my family these past two and a half's been great!  Also, perfect timing because Kyle had to head out on a mission so we're both gone at the same time!  Now, unfortunately I couldn't carry along my chalkboard so I don't have any pictures but I'm still barely showing at all.  It's rather funny because we've been telling more people from home...and then they look at me...and then look at my belly...and then back up to my face and have this confused look on their face because they don't see a bump!  I then have to say...yes, I'm not really showing yet!  

How far along?  17-18 weeks
Total weight gain:  not negative but not positive
Maternity clothes?  No but loving leggings
Sleep:  not sleeping as much and not sleeping quite as well
Stretch marks?  Nobut using tons of stretch mark cream!
Miss anything?  Not having to pee 4 times during the night
Movement:  maybe
Food Cravings: Noodles & Co Mac & Cheese, fruit, Runza, Amigos, Valentinos
Anything making you sick or queasy:  meat cooking
Gender:  it’s a GIRL
Labor signs:  heck no
Symptoms:  still nauseous a lot, eating better but not great, headaches
Belly Button in or out?  in
Wedding rings on or off?  on
Mood: ecstatic to be in NE
Excitement this week:  just being back in Nebraska with the best parents in the world!
Looking forward to:  eating more Nebraska only food!!!

Besides the flight out to Nebraska, the day after the C-5 flight, I've been feeling pretty good.  I'm definitely eating more but still have ups and downs.  Have developed some awful indigestion which unfortunately is rather normal but like I said, feeling better!  I've had a bit more energy, too.  One of my mom and I's projects while I am home is to work on receiving blacks for little baby b.  This morning I managed to whip out 4 of them.  And I think I'm going to work on more after I get done here.  We hit up the $2.50 a yard sale at Joanns.  :) 

Here is a pic of a few of the blankets we made!

added some ric-rac trim for fun

Love this one so much-we made 2

two more of the 2 layer receiving blankets

I LOVE this one-minky and damask flannel with a ruffle binding
