Week 17

Week 17 and rolling right along.

Symptoms // Round ligament pains are in full effect. I've also noticed it's become slightly more difficult to just pop up off the couch, or up off the floor.

Cravings // Can someone please bring me a strawberry shake from In and Out? Pretty please. I'm also consuming cherry tomatoes at an alarming rate - holy moly they're so good. Strawberries, cantaloupe and pineapple are all so delicious. Oh, and Starburst Jelly Beans are kind of like heaven in my mouth right now - damn you Easter candy!

Size of Baby // According to the My Pregnancy App: M² is the size of a turnip, or about 5 ounces and 5 inches long.

Movement // I haven't been feeling the little movements as much as I'd like, but they are there and they are subtle.

Sleep // I sure hope I'm not jinxing anything, but everyone in our house seems to be sleeping pretty well these nights.

Clothing // I have yet to bust out any true maternity clothes, but I've washed all my maternity clothes from the last go around, too bad most are for cold weather. So, I have been ordering a few summer appropriate items. I also had to cave and grab the larger size bras out of my pregnancy clothes stash (not mad about that).

Best Part of the Week/ Looking Forward To… // I have an appointment today to check in on M².  I can't wait to hear that little heart beating away.
Marcus has taken really well to his converted bed, and I'm excited for the arrival of his big boy bed tomorrow. I'm just itching to get his big boy room started, and then turning the focus to the nursery.

Have a great weekend!

  1. You look great!! Cherry tomatoes have become my new favorite thing to snack on right now. I never used to like them, but i've just recently discovered a package of sweet cherry tomatoes at our grocery store and i'm addicted to them! So good!
    And yay for Marcus' big boy bed! I would be excited to get his room and the nursery started too =)
    Happy Weekend!!

  5. I was always so shocked that the baby could be (in this case) 5" long but only weight 5 oz! Seems lopsided, doesn't it? :)

    Looking great! Have fun at your apt today!!

  7. You look fantastic! I hope you have better luck finding maternity shorts than I have. I realize half the country is dealing with a blizzard right now, but there are women who are pregnant in warm weather and need shorts right now!

  8. I at pineapple every day when pregs with Catherine. EVERY DAY. A huge can. The cherry tomatoes came at about 28 weeks. I am sensing a girl is in your future!

  12. Easter candy ... I go crazy for the all red Starburst Jelly Beans. Last time Sean and I went grocery shopping I threw bag in there and when I wasn't looking he sneakily took it out. I was mad when we got home, hahaha.

    You look fabulous! Happy 17 weeks!
