I can still remember very clearly the day my pregnancy test turned positive for this pregnancy and yet, here I am sharing my 17 week pregnancy update. It’s crazy how quickly this all goes and especially when I’m trying to take it all in and live in the moment. The first trimester, I find, is always the most stressful and as I approach the half-way mark, I am happy to see some easing on symptoms and increase in some of the more exciting things about pregnancy.
It’s been a while since I wrote a pregnancy update, but it’s something I would like to do more often. I think it’s fun for me to have it written down, but I’ve also been a fan of reading other’s updates (If you have one, link it in the comments so I can go read!).
Week of pregnancy: 17 weeks
Weight gain: Minus 7 pounds
Symptoms: Still have nausea and vomiting, headaches seem to come each night and I’m finding myself to be more and more hungry
Showing yet?: Some days I think I am and other’s not at all.
The best thing: Watching my kids get excited about the baby
The most difficult thing: With all the humidity, I’ve found it difficult to keep hydrated.
Feeling baby move?: Yes! I’ve been feeling the baby for a few weeks. This week my husband felt the babe and so did Raru.
Appointments coming up: I have an ultrasound for my kidney this week and the 20 week anatomy ultrasound next week.
Looking forward to: Looking pregnant and not just like I’ve put on a few pounds.
Boy or girl?: Not sure yet. I don’t even have a clear feeling either way. We should know soon.
Purchases?: I have bought some things for myself (nursing bras), but only have a blanket for the babe.
