17 week bumpdate



How far along are you?: 17 weeks!! Almost half way! (or, if the little “onion” decides to come early then maybe I’m already half-way!)
How I’m feeling: Grrrreat. Dizzy spells still happen every once in awhile but they pass quickly. Other than that I am SO enjoying having my energy and my mornings (which were totally stolen by morning sickness) back. Hallelujah! I cannot believe how much easier this pregnancy is compared to my first.
Total weight gain: 4 lb. My goal is 25 lb….because the FIFTY I toted around last time was UNACCEPTABLE.
How big is baby?: We have little baby onion right now. :)


This week baby:  is forming fat to keep her (oops did I say that? I’m just SO convinced!) warm. I should start feeling little kicks and punches any day now. Can’t wait!
Maternity clothes: Nope…but as you can see from the picture that belly is definitely popping.
Sleep: Gooooooood. And I am so thankful. I thought I was going to have a calf cramp last night…which made me cringe and think about crying…but then it passed. Calf cramps visited me almost every night in Noah’s second trimester….I’m sure they’re just waiting to pounce on me this time…
Best moment this week: Having my mother-in-law here to visit with!! She has been watching Noah while I’m at work and Noah has been loving EVERY MINUTE with his grandma. Also, Noah waved “bye-bye” to me for the first time. Melt my heart.
Movement: I don’t think so.
Food cravings: Macaroni and Cheese. Home-made BAKED macaroni and cheese, specifically.

Food aversions: sweets.
Belly button in or out: Innie!
What I am thankful for: Having a husband who is handling my heightened emotions like a champ. “You need to cry every night, dear? No prob.”
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling some movement – soon I hope!


How about a little comparison? The picture on the left is from 16 weeks and the picture on the right is from 17 weeks. WHAA. Okay, maybe it’s just me…but I feel like my stomach has gotten gigantic!



Also…I wrote this on my LUNCH break. So…you guys must be pretty important. ;)
