How Far Along: 17 weeks and 5 days

Baby is the size of: navel orange or pomegranate
Best Moments This Week:
- Noticing my bump get bigger
- Only puked 5 out of 7 days (and usuaully only 1x day)
- Spending Mother’s Day with my fur-babies and my husband
Total Weight Gain: +6 lbs – didn’t weigh myself this week
Maternity Clothes: Ended up caving and bought 2 bras in a cup size bigger. I will use the extenders on the rest of my bras. Wearing maternity pants or maxi skirts consistently, but still mixing between regular tops and maternity.
Symptoms: Nausea has subsided since I’m on the Zofran + Ranitidine. Headaches have subsided too. I’ve been really making an effort to ensure I’m drinking enough water and not letting myself get hungry. I’ve had some round ligament pain this week. I also have some major muscle or tendon pain going down the back of my right hip. I slept funny last night and it’s especially bothering me today.
Sleep: Getting more used to my pillow fort. I still wake up 1-2x a night to pee.
Food Cravings: Ice cold water, popsicles, ice cream, and chicken (I puked my chicken up last night, so it’s crossed off the list now)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Brushing my teeth, bending over or getting up too fast, coughing
Movement: On and off. No real kicks yet!
Stretch Marks: Nothing new
Baby Bump: Took this photo last week. Still hoping my B rounds itself out more.
Gender Prediction: BOY! 17 days until we know for sure…
Labour Signs: Too early.
Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!
Wedding Rings on or off?: On.
Happy or Moody?: Up and down this week. Spent the afternoon with my husband yesterday which was lovely. Work has me a bit anxious as I’m leading a ton of workshops at our head office this week.
Purchases for baby: Nothing this week, but we did receive this book as a gift. Thank you! 🙂 ❤
Miss Anything?: Not feeling like a blump when I bend over. Being able to sleep straight through the night.
Looking forward to: Our anatomy/gender scan on May 28 and making our official announcement!
