Baby # 3: 17 Weeks & Gender Poll

I can't believe I'm already 17 weeks! This pregnancy is flying by, probably because I am chasing 2 little boys all day. Up until last week, it has seemed just like the first 2 pregnancies...lots of sickness. But last week I finally started feeling better. I haven't thrown up in over a week and have been able to stay pretty active, unlike the first 16 weeks. So I'm hoping this is here to stay! 

We find out the gender next week! We know that this is our last biological child, so I'm hoping for a girl. But I don't really have a feeling of what it is. And obviously we'll be just as happy with 3 boys! So, its time for the voting to begin. Vote on the poll (you'll have to go to the actual blog if you're in google reader) but also leave a comment with you guess so we'll know what you think! 

17 Weeks 

Pregnancy Highlights for the Week:

How Far Along: 17 Weeks
Maternity Clothes: Sort of. I'm in the in between stage but maternity are definitely more comfortable.
Fruit/Veggie: Turnip

Baby changes: Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.
Best Moment this week: I finally started feeling the baby move consistently in the last week. Also, I've been feeling soo much better!

Gender: Still not sure but we find out next Tuesday!

Movement: Feeling consistent flutters, pokes and wiggles

Food Cravings: chocolate milk and milkshakes

Sleep: I've slept better in the last week. 

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender next week

Symptoms: still a little nauseous, some growing pains, and still tired some afternoons


  1. palermos - i just have this feeling it is a boy. i sense that the "palermo boys" will be a continued title.

    just what i think. i could be wrong. ;)

  2. I am voting girl, only because I already bought her something :-) and maybe we will have a boy this time and they can get married.


  3. I picked girl. I am with you and do not have a strong feeling either way. Part of me thinks boy too, but it would be fun for Claire to have a girl cousin running around with her.


Thanks for leaving us a note! We love hearing from you!
