Bumpdate week 17




How far along? 17 weeks

Total weight gain: I stepped on the scale at home 10 pounds. Not too bad. My doctor told me between 10 and 15 by the new year so we are right on track.
Maternity clothes? Yes maternity clothes with some regular tops still mixed in
Stretch marks? No new ones. Using lotion nightly after my shower!

Sleep: Pretty good. Still with my pregnancy pillow I wake up on my back all wrapped up in the pillow so I try to lay on my side as much as possible but these hips don’t lie and they hurt sometimes
Best moment this week: Making cookies with Grayson and I feel like I have for sure popped out these last 2 weeks. Plus we got the windows put in both the kids rooms upstairs and we finished Grayson’s dresser for his room.
Miss Anything? No but I know the end is near on doing a lot of my normal things and I will miss that.
Movement: Little flutters here or there it’s very sporadic.

Food cravings: Cookies, chocolate, oreos. I have for sure started my sweet tooth phase.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No smoothies and the smell of lunchmeat is still horrible to me
Gender: December 28 is our official sonogram
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I have some round ligament still but knock on wood no siatic pain since last week.
Belly Button in or out? Flat. My belly looks fake
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Christmas festivities!
Grayson: He was playing with Michael blowing raspberries on each other and he came over pulled up my shirt and said I get dem babies too and blew a raspberry on my stomach. My hormones kicked in and I laughed and cried because it was so sweet and funny.
Our next appointment is on the 22nd and then we have our sonogram on the 28th. So I’m just looking forward to enjoying the holidays and then getting to know who these two babies are that are growing in my belly. Plus I’m for sure carrying different than I did with Grayson. With him I was so high and now I’m just more out than high, if that makes sense.
