Bump Update: 17 Weeks

How far along: 
Exactly 17 weeks today! I'm definitely starting to show more, but this top was probably a poor choice. Note to self stripes don't work for bump photos

Baby's size:
Our peanut is the size of an onion. About 5.1 inches and 5.9 ounces.

Weight gain: 
Still only 5 pounds. We had an appointment Tuesday and the scale was exactly the same as it was 4 weeks ago. Maybe my weight is just shifting :)

Food cravings: 
Overall, I'm eating a ton of fruit, salad and the occasional sweet treat. I'm keeping my eating in check for the most part. I've been loving Kind Bars as a afternoon snack. I have noticed I'm eating more carbs -- probably because they leave me feeling more full. Portions are still the same size. 

Anything making you queasy or sick:
No. I'm only lucky girl.

Still sleeping like a champ. My nightly average is between 8-9 hours. Of course I'm waking up for a nightly bathroom break from all the water I drink..

Next month! It seriously can't happen soon enough. Don't forget to cast your vote --upper right of the blog if you're leaning one way or another.

Nothing yet. It's still too early.

Best moment this week:
  Completing Tough Mudder for the third time, but this year I was 16 weeks pregnant! Celebrating our two year anniversary.

Miss anything?
My flat abs. They will come back to me one day :)

I feel a pain here and there, but my body is changing which is to be expected.

CrossFit, spin and walking/running. It might be time to start yoga again. I'm still logging 6-8 workouts a week. No, I haven't missed a workout either.

Maternity Clothes?
 I purchased a few items during the Gap Friends & Family sale, but I'm still waiting to rock them. I would love to know what your favorite maternity jeans and legging are.

Overall happy. Oh, but I can cry almost at the drop of a hat. It's frustrating as a non-emotional person. I'm pretty sure it makes me cry more when it happens. Most breakdowns happen at work -- oops. In my defense I have a stressful job.

Looking forward to: 
  Getting my hair cut today!! Honestly, I can't wait for our trip to Portland. I'm also ready to start this new kitchen remodel if the permit would ever be approved. My patience is running out. We're getting close though!

  1. Congrats on your little one - what an adorable, tiny bump! :) I love my leggings and jeans from Target's maternity section. Definitely get yourself a Blanqi support tank! It helps hold up your non-maternity pants and supports your back/bump. It was a life saver in my last pregnancy! :)

    1. Thanks Jessica. Sounds like I need to make a trip to Target, darn ;)
