17.5 Weeks - I'm bigger this time.
Tuesday, April 11, 2017
My age: 32
How far along: 17 weeks 6 days
How big is baby: 5-1/2 inches-ish, bell pepper size
What have you been up to: Same old stuff, really. I am growing much faster this time around and don't think I was this big until week 26 last time. With baby #1 you want a bump so bad and it takes forever, with subsequent babies you want to stay small longer and you don't. lol
Exercise/Activity Level: I randomly went back to Zumba last week and found a new gym with a great instructor!! It was so fun that I think I'm going to do that for the next little bit and just tone it down to low-impact as needed.
Maternity clothes: Yes ma'am. Just bought a belly band too.
Stretch marks: Nope
Belly Button: In
Sleep: Unisom is my bff
Best Moment of the Week: I'd say camping with the family and watching B3 experience it all! He had so much fun playing in the dirt/rocks/with family, etc. To be honest, I was not really looking forward to it because I still throw up everyday, etc., and it sounded like a lot of work, but it turned out to be fun and the fresh air helped!
Worst Moment of the Week: The camping nighttime bathroom trips. hahaha I'd wake up and lay there for an hour trying to convince myself I really didn't need to go, it was just in my head. The thing is we all woke up to a herd of coyotes howling in our campsite (they make crazy weird screaming noises) which was terribly freaky to go outside alone afterwards. I got three hours of sleep.
Food cravings: Grapefruit juice. I could drink that by the gallon! Also the new Garden Fresh mild mango salsa from Costco. It's amazing.
Food aversions: Just stinky food, although I told Ben I'm ready to try some cooking this week.
Symptoms: Nausea, rib pain, oily skin, and I just felt my first round ligament pains which I never had with B3. I have had Braxton Hicks already, which I read start earlier with each child, but kind of freaky.
Movement: Yes! I felt around 16 weeks. Baby loves to dance after grapefruit juice. Ben says, "I would too. ..GROSS!!"
Gender: TBD this month
What I’m looking forward to: Finding out the gender!
What I’m nervous about/praying for: That we'll not be moved by the time baby comes and baby will have colic and cry so much we'll get kicked out of our little apartment. The scenarios of a pregnant mind.
What I miss: Running (I have picked my next full marathon, Mt. Charleston next spring!!), over caffeinating myself, not looking like a whale, smaller boobs...which goes along with the whale thing.
Next appointment: Wednesday the 19th, 19 weeks, anatomy scan day! And gender day, but I will be carrying an envelope with the gender in it around with me for a couple of weeks because we're finding out with the family.
