17 Weeks Pregnant
Weight: +5.6 lbs from starting weight (110.6)
Symptoms: acne, emotional, round ligament pain, peeing every 10 minutes
How I am Feeling: I've been having a rough week.
Best Thing about Pregnancy: It's almost halfway over.
Worst Thing about Pregnancy: It's really putting a strain on my relationship with Dan.
What I am Looking Forward to this Week: Date night on Saturday
