17 weeks!! Almost halfway through this pregnancy with BabyT#3! The weeks are going by so fast this time around. I remember with Seth it seemed to go so slowly, even his babyhood seemed slow, I couldn’t wait to get to the next stage and do the next thing. I couldn’t wait to get maternity clothes, a bump, or to know what contractions felt like. Now I get out my maternity clothes rather reluctantly, feel thankful that I still feel small and while I’m not dreading contractions I don’t need to be feeling them anytime soon.
Weight: I’ve gained 17 pounds. Faster than I was hoping for, but I think it will probably slow down in the end weeks.
Cravings: Last night was the first time I’ve had to call Ben and ask him to stop at the store specifically for the one thing I was craving. Pickles. And I ate the whole jar. 🙂 I’m still liking anything spicy and salty.
Diet and Exercise: I’m following Trim Healthy Mama a little more closely now, restricting sugar to my dark chocolate and the occasional cranberry I steal from the boys. Refined carbs are out instead being replaced with sweet potatoes, squash and buckwheat. Quinoa has seemed to be irritating the last few times I’ve tried it, so I’m staying away from that for now.
I ordered some new prenatal workout DVD’s a couple of weeks ago and I love trying new workouts any time I want. I would like to be running twice a week and doing a workout DVD twice a week, something I did accomplish last week. 🙂
Sickness: No more nausea, now I’m just dealing with fatigue. Although I think my lowered immune system might be reacting to pollen right now as I feel like I have a bad head cold that comes and goes.
Length: somewhere around 5″
Weight: around 5 ounces. 🙂 almost half a pound.
Other:BabyT#3 is moving around a lot now. It’s urinary tract is functioning and it is practicing to breathe by inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid.
I’m super excited for the 28th. That’s when I’ll find out what we’ve been blessed with and we’ll have a small reveal party for the boys. 🙂
