Bumpdate | 17 Weeks

Bumpdate | 17 Weeks

How Far Along?:  17 Weeks!

Weight Gain: 17 lbs. Seems like a lot, but I guess I still have 8-18lbs to go to be in the healthy weight range.

Gender?: BOY!

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of an Onion! Cooper is weighing in at 5.9 oz and 5.1 inches long. I have a feeling that this is gonna be a much bigger baby than the twins haha.

Symptoms: I've been pretty moody lately...everything seems to set me off. It's probably because I'm exhausted and my back is starting to hurt again. But on the bright side, I for SURE felt Cooper moving around in there. I had a feeling I felt flutters at 14 weeks, but I wasn't really paying too much attention. Now I can definitely feel him and it's a constant thing!

Any Food Cravings?: Veggie burgers. Oh my goodness, I could eat 3 to myself in one sitting haha. I've gone vegetarian (mostly) for most of this pregnancy and although I definitely don't crave nearly as much as I did with the twins, these burgers are so yummy!

Sleep: I've been sleeping alright. I get up about twice a night to pee usually, so that's no fun, but thankfully I'm still comfortable to get roughly 8 hours of sleep.

Stretch Marks?: No new ones since the twins!

Maternity Clothes?: Yup, living in my maternity shirts and leggings haha.

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On.

What Do You Miss the Most?: I would say my energy. This trimester so far I've had pretty good energy, but I do run out of steam a lot faster than I used to. I used to be a night owl and now I can barely stay up past 9:00pm haha.

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: My in-laws are coming up to take Mya for a few weeks, so it will be nice to have a break and only take care of one pup. I'm sad that my husband is leaving for work, but the boys and I will have a good time!

Labor Signs?: Nope!

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: Might sound silly, but the boys had their first real dentist appointment and they did so good! I'm so proud of them, it's crazy to think that their next appointment will be after I have Cooper.
