Bumpdate #2: 17 Weeks
Baby is about the size of a turnip!
How far along: 17 weeks
Weight Gain: About 4 pounds
Maternity clothes: Maternity leggings and bellaband. Regular winter clothes are working well: lots of sweaters and sweater dresses.
Stretch marks: Nope. Going strong with Honest belly balm and straight olive oil.
Belly button: Growing wider
Wedding ring: On
Movement: I felt baby move for the first time this week! For a minute or two my tummy felt and looked asymmetrical and kind of bulged on one side and then went back to normal. It was very cool!
Sleep: Sleeping much better the last few days. I even slept through the night a few times this week! Also taking afternoon naps most days. Sleeping for two :)
Cravings: I hadn't really had any cravings all week until last night I had an extreme pasta craving. Still eating lots of sourdough and clementines.
Feeling: Feeling baby move makes the whole thing feel more real but sometimes I still can't believe there is going to be a whole new little person out in the world in a few months. Seeing Sam so excited about the baby also makes me even more excited and in love with both of them.
Best moments this week:
1. Feeling baby move for the first time.
2. Weekday breakfast date to No Worries with Sam. One of his coworkers has a baby and told him to make sure we go on lots of dates before baby to take advantage of the last few months of being just the two of us.
3. Buying some snuggly little outfits at Carter's. Owls, raccoons, foxes, moose and bears! Can't wait to dress baby in cozy little outfits.
