Baby Bumpdate and Exciting News!

We've had a very tiring week at the Elmore household; Silas has gone rogue. He has begun waking up at 5:45-6:00 a.m. for no.good.reason. One of those days he even woke up and began to throw a massive tantrum, first over wanting some grapes and then demanding to watch T.V...I caved over the grapes, but we had some disciplining over the T.V. tantrum. I don't know why he's waking up so early and I don't know what to do to make him sleep longer. I welcome anyone's suggestions!

Now, on to the fun stuff....

How far along: 17 weeks

Total weight gain: 6 lbs

Maternity clothes: No. Rocking my regular uniform in this week's pic...gym clothes!

Stretch marks: None

Sleep: Doing well and only up one time a night, but the early morning tantrum/wake up calls from Silas are wearing on me!

Best moment of this week: Organizing Silas' toys to get rid of some clutter (at least until the baby comes) and finding toys we haven't played with in months. We literally played "Noah's Ark" with his stuffed figurines for an hour yesterday!

Miss anything: Adequate sleep!

Movement: Baby has been much more active this week, with little pops when I sit down at night...or try to sleep during Silas' nap time.

Food cravings: Sweets! I want anything made with sugar....

Anything making you queasy or sick: I've had a few episodes of not feeling well which I think may be a drop in blood pressure if I'm standing up for a long time, especially in the mornings.

Have you started to show yet: Yes, but I definitely don't look as pregnant in this picture as I did in last week's.

Gender: I have a feeling I may know, but it's only a 50% chance. Our small group talked about paying for us to have an ultrasound early because the suspense is killing everyone.

Labor signs: No

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, but definitely cried one time,  probably from our sleep issue.

Looking forward to: Starting a fun, new, business venture!

Business?! I'm excited to announce that I have signed up to sell Stella and Dot! If you've never heard of it, Stella and Dot is boutique style jewelry and accessories sold online and/or in at home trunk shows. I've been thinking and praying about it for awhile and decided I wanted to try it for a few reasons:
1. I want to spend more time at home with Silas and the new baby.
2. I want to spend more time with ladies that I adore and meet some new, sweet, friends.
3. I like the company's product and their sense of community.
4. Free jewelry never hurt a pregnant lady's swagger ;)

I'll be contacting people individually about all of the great benefits of hosting a trunk show, but if you'd like to see what Stella and Dot is all about, then here is my website and I'd love to hear from you, answer any questions, and book a show with you!!

Have a great weekend!
