17 weeks update

DISCLAIMER: This post contains information about our pregnancy. Because I know all too well how these kinds of posts may affect my fellow #ttcsisters and #ttcbrothers, I include this disclaimer to forewarn you. I understand how much these posts can sting and promise to continue to add the disclaimer on any post that may be related to this pregnancy (assuming viability) so that you may have the option to bow out of reading. I understand.

(Disclaimer 2: I actually turned 17 weeks on 19 Mar, but didn’t want to miss anything in the update, so I have decided my update posts will be the following Monday of the week).

Your baby is now the size of a pear. He has hiccupped before, but this is the first time you might feel it.

Baby’s Weight: 4.94 oz.
Baby’s Length: 5.12 oz.
Timeline:  19-25 Mar 2017

Total weight gain/loss: Unknown. I haven’t weight myself this week, but was 163 last week with 9 pounds overall weight gain..

Maternity clothes?: Yes. I wore my first pair of maternity jeans Friday and Saturday with an over the belly panel. I am now in love with all things over the panel and will be seeking to add more to the wardrobe soon.

Stretch marks?: I don’t see any new ones, but my skin has started to itch on my belly. We’ll see what happens.

Sleep: Better, but I have to elevate myself of I can’t sleep. I’m also a horrible snorer now. Poor S.

Best moment of the week: Feeling a no kidding kick after giving the baby ginger ale and traveling with the young adults

Have you told family and friends: Yes.

Miss Anything?: Not really.

What I’m loving?: The stronger movements. S. will be able to feel them soon, I hope.

What I’m not loving?: The nausea I get if I haven’t eaten often enough or quantity enough.


Anything make you queasy or sick?: If I don’t eat every two hours.

Food cravings: Not really.

Food aversion: Chicken, blech!

Have you started to show yet: Yes

Gender prediction: #teamgreen. Last week I was sure it was a girl. This week, no clue.

Labor Signs:

Belly Button in or out?: Still in, but stretched

Wedding ring on or off?: On

Happy or Moody most of the time?: Pretty happy

Preparations for baby?: None besides choosing our delivery location. I’ll blog about that later.

Looking forward to: Warmer weather so the kids and I can walk in the afternoon and S. being able to feel the baby.
