Week 17 Bumpdate

Baby girl at 12 weeks

I'm finally getting around to doing a bumpdate for baby girl!

How far along? 17 weeks, 2 days (22 more weeks to go)

Size of baby: Turnip (5 inches; 5 oz)

Weight gain: Not quite sure, but I'm estimating 6.2 pounds. I'll confirm at my next doctor appt.

Maternity clothes: I resisted for a while, but I finally took out my old clothes at around 14 weeks, which is when I feel like I suddenly popped. I really need to buy some new ones, though. I definitely got my use out of them during A's pregnancy.

Stretch marks: None so far, thank God!

Symptoms: Compared to the first trimester, minor fatigue. The first trimester was awful. I had constant nausea (including throwing up, which I didn't with A) and major fatigue. I just had to lie down all day and let A do his own thing.

Cravings: Carbs, same as first trimester. Funny thing is that I tried eating healthy yesterday (including a kale salad), and I literally felt sick. It's like my body is rejecting healthy food...

Gender: GIRL! I had a feeling it was a girl given my symptoms (I joked that she was already giving me a hard time... haha)

Mood: Somewhat tired but generally okay.

Nursery: Need to get on that. I've only thought of general ideas, and since we're going to be moving (AGAIN), I can't quite commit.

Movement: I think I've felt some flutters here and there, but I'm not quite sure.

Sleep: Meh. Sleep has been up and down.

Workouts: Walking here and there, and sometimes doing at home cardio. However, my Fitbit now serves as a daily reminder that I'm not meeting my minimum steps.

What I miss: Normal clothes and WINE.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really, but I'm still grossed out by meat.

Best moment this week: Thinking I've felt movement!

Labor signs? Nope

Looking forward to: Feeling baby's movement.

Comparison of A at 17 weeks (on the left) and baby girl at 17 weeks (on the right). I look so much rounder with her (already!) Yikes.
