17 weeks...waiting to POP!

So today marks the 17 week milestone...I've made it 17 weeks! Can you believe it? This journey has brought out every emotion I ever thought I could feel. I am excited, nervous, scared, anxious and every other emotion all rolled into one. Carrying a child is like something I can't explain. When I listen to the heartbeat I can't help but thank God for the awesome creation who has orchestrated inside of me. What a blessing.

Overall I have been feeling pretty good, aside from being a little tired and having some "growing pains", I've been feeling good. As of today, I am up 3.5 pounds from my pre-pregnancy those of you who are following know that means I gained 1.5 pounds this week...I'm going to blame Thanksgiving on that!! haha!
So here are my newest pictures...I still don't think I've "Popped" yet...I think it's getting really close though. I am also waiting anxiously to feel the baby move. I think I may have felt it a couple of times, but I'm not sure if it was baby or gas...they say it can be confusing at first!! haha! So here I am with my bump: And here I am with my shirt down:
And here is how big our little baby is to date:

I started to feel "flutters" in my 18th week with Owen but the first kick came at 22 weeks...after that it was a like circus with Owen jumping on my bladder, rolling from side to side, and hanging on my ribs as if they were monkey bars! Keeping you, Josh, and the little one in my prayers! Lots of hugs!!
