Bumpdate: 17 Weeks ~ Baby #2


How far along: 17 weeks, today.

Symptoms: Sporadic headaches, terrible allergies (I had this happen with Emmalyn, too), awful groin pain, making it quite uncomfortable to walk at times (already?!)

Maternity Clothes: Living in mostly regular leggings, although my maternity ones from H&M are much more comfortable. I have a pair of maternity jeans from Target and a brown pair of skinnies from Motherhood Maternity since I no longer fit into my pants! Since I'm pregnant during a different season this time around, I purchased long-sleeve maternity shirts, as it will get a lot colder in our new city.

Total Weight Gain: 3 pounds. I'm definitely showing a lot sooner than I was with Emmy.

Gender: This Type A Girl is anxiously awaiting! I was originally told I would find out next week, but could not get an appointment until December 31! I'm so bummed because I wanted to find out before my birthday, which is next Thursday (the 20th), but it looks like I will have to wait. Hmph! I'm impatient! Although.... it may be kind of cool to announce it at midnight...

Movement: It's funny how this time around I was able to detect the little flutters right away, at around 11 weeks. I'm sure it had to do with the fact that I already knew what it felt like. Just this week I've started feeling the baby move around while I'm up and moving, too, whereas before it was just when I was sitting or lying still.

Sleep: When I'm not blowing my brains out into a tissue, I'm sleeping pretty well. I have finally stopped peeing a million bazillion times a night, so I'm thankful for that.

Cravings & Aversions: Nope to both!

Funny Moments: Uncontrollable peeing.

Not So Funny Moments: Uncontrollable peeing.

Nesting: I definitely have a lot more energy now that the first 16 weeks have passed. Before, I was so nauseous and felt like I couldn't move from the sofa. Now, I am going from one errand to the next, and getting out more with Emmy.

Best Moments This Week: Hands down, having Emmalyn go to our ultrasound last Wednesday. The doctor let her *do it* and when she saw the picture on the screen she said, "Look Mommy! It's our baby!" It was the most beautiful moment. I can't wait for her to be a big sister. She's going to rock it!

What I Miss: Having a little bit of alcohol at a restaurant.

Looking Forward To: Looking a little more pregnant. Right now I'm at the "is she, or isn't she?" stage.

loyally,

  1. I love it when you finally feel like you have energy again! And I totally relate to the "is she or isn't she" stage--you don't really feel pregnant until you can see that you're pregnant!
