Bumpdate {17 weeks}

September 8, 2014
 
how far along: 17 weeks, 2 days
 
 

size of baby: an onion, 5.1 inches {according to the Bump}

gender: will be confirmed by our doctor in 2 weeks!!

weight gain: hoping an eventful weekend tipped the scale a bit and I’ll go down again by the end of the week…but 4 pounds as of this morning! {up to 132}

maternity clothes: thinking I’ll have to do some shopping over the next couple weeks.  the same maxi skirts/dresses are getting old! also tried to dress up a bit for a bridal shower this weekend and non-maternity dresses just don’t fit quite right!
 
stretch marks: nope…using my Mustela still!
 
rings: on 🙂

nursery: a disaster…still

movement: I’m pretty sure I felt a few flutters over the weekend! so excited to feel movement that I definitely know is the baby!

symptoms: still just some dizziness when I get up too quickly…

sleep: still wanting lots of it! I think I was out by 9pm yesterday! getting up for the bathroom and switching sides a lot during the night…sleeping on my side is tough on my shoulders and arms!

cravings: nothing specific, but if I see something and it looks/sounds/or smells good – I want it. like now. still.
 
aversions: meals at dinner are sounding better and better.  trying not to snack so much in the afternoon so I have a bigger appetite by the evening!

what I miss: coffee…I’ve let myself indulge about once a week the last couple of weeks on a tea or decaf from Starbucks {see Instagram last week}, but just a plain coffee with vanilla creamer sounds delish! especially with the cloudy weather we have this morning!

best moment this week: thinking I felt the flutters of a little baby swimming around! also spending quality time with friends and family celebrating a bridal shower for my bestie and booking a wedding venue with my sister in law!

looking forward to: a little getaway this weekend and our 2nd anniversary!
