17 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week. I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly. I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.
How far along: 17 weeks
Size of baby: This little one is about 5 inches long (top of head to tip of tailbone) and weighs about as much as a turnip.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 7 pounds total so far.
Maternity clothes: mostly I wear spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and cute/comfy shorts
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: I have felt a few flutters here and there :)
Sleep: Sleep has been ok. Not great, but not terrible.
What I miss: My coffee milk each morning, having a modicum of energy, and not having indigestion every night before bed.
Cravings: ice cream, cherry cokes, pickles
Symptoms: hunger, exhaustion, indigestion
Exercise: walking a couple of times a week at the mall, 15-20 minutes of yoga stretches before bed most nights, occasional planks and squats
Best moment this week: seeing our baby and finding out that he's a boy :) 💙
