Bumpdate | 17 Weeks

Bumpdate | 17 Weeks

How Far Along?:  17 Weeks!

Weight Gain: About 10 pounds, right on track.

Gender?: It's a GIRL!

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of a pomegranate! She's measuring 5.1 inches long and 5.9 ounces. She's definitely put on the weight since last week! This week her cartilage is starting to turn into bone and she's packing on the fat.

Symptoms: I'm definitely feeling better this week, last week I threw up twice and just felt blah. I'm starting to FINALLY move out of the nausea, but of course with that now I'm getting more headaches. I still am not sleeping great, but I'm doing better. I've also had some crazy pregnancy dreams. I decided to get into a routine since I have a little more energy now, I wake up at 5am, workout, meditate, eat breakfast and shower before the boys get up. At first it was hard, but going to bed by 9:00pm has really helped!

Any Food Cravings?: Honestly not much, in fact my appetite has sorta gone away.

Sleep: Better than last week but I'm starting to get uncomfortable. I can't seem to find a good position. I just wish I could lay on my back!

Stretch Marks?: Nothing new!

Maternity Clothes?: I'm loving my maternity clothes and this pregnancy I'm actually splurging so I feel cute and comfy, especially if I'm going to survive this summer!

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On!

What Do You Miss the Most?: Not getting these pregnancy headaches and being able to sleep on my back.

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: I have my anatomy scan on Wednesday and I can't wait! Really hoping Wes can come along since we hasn't been able to make it to any of my appointments this pregnancy. I'm also really hoping we have finally tackled this potty training thing!

Labor Signs?: NOPE!
