Here we go again!

I'm going to try to make things simpler this time around so we'll see how that goes. (Hence the iPhone photo.)

How Far Along: 17 weeks
Baby Size: 5 ounces, the weight of a turnip, the size of an onion!
Total Weight Gain: Ah! I just got weighed today  but didn't have the guts to ask. I think like 12 pounds. :-/
Maternity Clothes? Sporting my miracle worker maternity tanks under all clothing already, but definitely still wearing normal jeans and shirts on top.
Stretch Marks? No.
Sleep: Good.
Best moment this week: Today we found out what the baby is!!! We are SO pumped, but haven't told all of our family yet so I'll wait to post it everywhere else. 
Miss Anything? I've really been wanting a glass of wine lately, which is weird because I really don't like wine.
Movement: Maybe a few flutters? I can't tell 100%, but I wish!
Food Cravings: Water all. the. time. Fresh fruit. Mexican food. Steak.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really any more, thank goodness. Smells and the thought of sweets made me gag for a while though.
Other Symptoms: Still a little tired, already getting awful leg and foot cramps. Need to pee a lot.
Gender: It's a secret for the moment :) 
Labor Signs: Haha, no way.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both? I swear I cry at everything right now. And when I'm mad, I super mad.
Looking forward to: Feeling first for sure kicks, picking out a name. Everything, really!
Differences from last pregnancy: This time around has been SO much easier, so far. Not near as sick, didn't break out, haven't had all of the weird skin stuff that I dealt with last time. Definitely feeling bigger a lot sooner this time though. And I have to pee a lot, which I never had to do with Parker (and I was well hydrated, I think)
Funny words/moments from Big Brother: Lately when I ask, "Is there a baby in Mommy's tummy?" He just looks at me dead-on and says "NO". He does love to point out all babies though and wants to pet them. Then he chucks a baby doll across the room and laughs.
