How far along? 17w2d
Total weight gain? Roughly 5 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yes maternity jeans all the way!
Stretch Marks? No
Sleep? Sleep has been kinda crazy lately. My pregnancy apps warned me that I’d probably start experiencing very vivid dreams due to constantly getting up throughout the night & boy were they right. I’ve had some terrible nightmares this week.
Best moment this week? My first prenatal massage with my doula, which was awesome, and not pregnancy related, we went on a little overnight stay to Lake Geneva for our 5 year anniversary and it was so fun. Finally getting to spend an anniversary being pregnant, I never knew if I would get to or not. Joe let me shop away so I got some stuff for myself and of course some stuff for baby girl.
Miss anything? I mentioned to Joe yesterday that mimosas were sounding and looking really good as we passed people enjoying their brunch outside yesterday in Geneva.
Movement? Nothing yet but I think it’s getting close!
Food cravings? Did I already say mimosas? Lots of sweets too still.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Not a darn thing!
Have you started to show yet? Yes, there is an official baby belly that is not food induced.
Labor Signs? No
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time? Finally feeling less moody and happier in general. That first trimester I was a royal bitch.
Looking forward to? I’m really hoping for some movement soon. It’s so hard not to worry when you go from seeing baby regularly via ultrasound the first several weeks of pregnancy to not getting to see her at all until 22 weeks. I’m happy I got the Doppler even though a lot of people tried to talk me out of it. It truly does give me some peace of mind & I know that if I have a problem finding the heart beat or I’m not able to, that I’m not an expert and I just need to try again later. My next appointment is October 3rd, they’ll just be doing a heartbeat check at that appointment as well. T-minus 5 more weeks til we get to have our 22 week anatomy scan.
