17 Week Bumpdate!

IMG_8534 I haven’t ever done one of these, and they are super fun! I love reading other mama’s updates! I definitely won’t be doing these every week, but maybe every few or once a month, we’ll see! I love watching the growing bellies, and I personally love being pregnant after getting past that first trimester! So here goes!

How far along: 17 weeks today! It’s flying by!

Total Weight Gain: Honestly, this pregnancy I haven’t really been keeping track so much. I know my doctor is of course, but I’m just enjoying it and trying not to worry about it! If I had to guess, I’d say around 8 pounds?

Maternity Clothes: Only jeans. Still wearing all my regular tops and dresses.

Gender: We don’t know yet, and it’s killing me! I’ve had loads of dreams about it and for the first time, I’m even checking out the old wives tales…I know, I know!

Cravings: Strawberry milkshakes and all things salty, especially red meat..steak & potatoes is my jam right now.

Symptoms: round ligament pain, which is a first. Never dealt with that the first two times.

Movement: just twice! after easter dinner, I was laying flat and really still on the couch, and I felt flutters for a few minutes! I can’t wait to feel more, its my favorite part!

Workouts: umm does running around after my two toddlers count? I really am trying to get back into it actually..Ill letcha know! 😉

Things that are repulsive: opening the fridge or freezer-the smell of cold food I think, bleh, chicken, I can’t even handle it and garlic. ew. also, strangely, water is a huge struggle for me!

Looking forward to: finding out this little nuggets gender!
