What a difference a week makes! I can’t believe how much has changed since my last bump update.
How far along are you? 17 weeks
How I’m feeling: I’m still having trouble getting up in the morning. I also need a midday nap and at night I can’t fall asleep until after 10! Headaches are daily and I am still having a little cramping. My hormones are going crazy and I am happy, sad, angry, annoyed – all the time. It is so frustrating!
Total weight gain: Last time I checked I gained six pounds. I have a feeling I’ve gained more weight during this part of my pregnancy based on how my clothes fit.
Cool baby facts: Baby’s rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone, he/she is growing some meat on his/her tiny bones, and growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord.
How big is baby? Baby H is now about the size of a large onion – or a turnip according to the What To Expect app.

Maternity Clothes: Bought my first pair of maternity pants this week! They are white and from Maternity Time in the Mall of Georgia. I am actually headed back there this afternoon to get some more bottoms – nothing fits anymore.
Best moment this week: Our gender scan… we know the gender of Baby H! Seeing the baby move around on the screen was absolutely amazing.
Movement: Baby H did a little somersault last night while I was waiting on the couch for my in-laws to arrive with dinner. I think he/she was saying, “I’m hungry!”
Food cravings: At the beginning of the week it was Birthday Celebration frozen yogurt topped with lots and lots of candy. Now it is a bagel from Panera, but that could be because I am sitting here staring at a rack of them.
Food aversions: None this week.
Belly button in or out: Still the same ole innie.
What I miss: Pants that fit
What I’m looking forward to: Feeling the baby move around more!
Randoms: I woke up Tuesday morning and subconsciously rubbed my belly… it felt more pronounced, so I ran to the mirror and saw that there was a bump! I can also feel my uterus now, right below my belly button. It is hard and it’s kind of creepy knowing that its there.
