17 WEEKS AND COUNTING

Ladies and gents, we are a mere three weeks away from finding out the gender of this little one.
I'm excited.
I got the okay from my doctor to workout. By "working out" she means I can walk on the treadmill and do arm strength training. I do what I can when I can and it feels so good to move!
Weight gain has been all over with this baby. I attribute that to not being able to do anything for like three months, but I can just see it everywhere. I do think my belly is smaller now that it was at this time with Caderyn. My legs are definitely bigger.
My cravings this past week were pizza-- always pizza-- and Sweetarts. You bet I got those and enjoyed them. I am still crazy for water. I just can't get enough water.
My sleep with this pregnancy hasn't been very good. I usually go to bed around 11:00 p.m. and can stay asleep until 3:45 a.m. or 4:00 a.m. if there are no interruptions from Caderyn. But once I wake up, oh I'm in pain! My abdominal area and hips just ache and I can never get comfortable. So I usually don't go back to sleep and I end up reading. That, my friends, is how I am able to get through some of these books so quickly! I read until 6ish or until Caderyn wakes up and comes into my room and then start to get ready for the day ahead of us. 
Compared to my first pregnancy, I have no energy. But I still do manage to get stuff done, keep my house semi-clean and occasionally remember to bathe my son :)
We find out what the baby is on the third of February. I'm still trying to think of a creative way to tell people, but, alas, creativity is eluding me these days. 
So if you have any good ideas, please let me know. 
I still think we're having a girl. 
Either way I will be over the moon, but my gut just tells me girl. 
We'll see how my intuition goes- I got it right with Caderyn.
