17 Weeks (Bump #2)

Blanket Scarf (only $11!)

Total Weight Gain: 9 lbs.

Symptoms: Most of the nausea is gone, so whoo hoo for that!  I'm still suffering from some frequent headaches, but otherwise no complaints!

Showing Yet?  I sure think so, especially after this week where my bump seems to have really popped out!  My 3 year old neighbor told me I had a big tummy!  I said there was a baby in there, so she proceeded to peak under my dress at the baby!  Priceless.

Stretch Marks?  No.  And I never had any with my first pregnancy, so I'm not expecting this time around.  Regardless, I am using & loving my Belli Elasticity Oil again.  The lavender smell is so calming.

Movement:  I can say with confidence that I have felt the baby move now!  And I'm fairly certain all those questionable flutters over the last 2 weeks were the baby as well.  Exciting stuff!  Now I want to feel those movements all the time, but they are still rare & sporadic!

Gender Predictions:  I'm really believing it's a girl.  Not sure if that is mother's intuition or just me trying to convince myself of it.  Either way, we will know on December 8th!!!

Sleep?  Lots of insomnia!  I have no problem conking out the second Liam & I lay down for nap time, but bedtime is a different story.  I don't remember it being this bad with Liam, but I'm adjusting.  It's not like I've slept much in the past 2 years.  

Maternity Clothes:  I have busted out my old maternity clothes from my first pregnancy and I ordered some jeans this week.  I'm having a rather difficult time find a skinny pair that I like, since I prefer a full panel and apparently that is hard to come by.  I'm waiting for these Paige skinnies to be delivered and am hoping I will love them!

Food Cravings/Aversions:  My Hawaii cravings are lingering...fish 'n chips & cinnamon rolls!  Plus fresh fruit still.  I'm buying fruit in Costco proportions and finishing them off in only a few days.  Still a meat aversion.

Staying Active?  Getting there.  Two workouts this week, which is actually decent considering I was still on vacation for half of the week.

Cries: Two near cries.  Very near.  Tears welled up but were not released.  Once due to being stuck in traffic for 1 hour with an upset toddler.  The other time over a call from our pediatrician about Liam being anemic.  It's not a huge concern, and we've been dealing with it for awhile, but it triggered something in me that particular day.  

Liam's Thoughts:  He loves to spontaneously kiss my belly which makes me smile so big!

Looking Forward to: Thanksgiving!  And then kicking off the Christmas Season!

  3. Im all about the full panel skinnies too! Have you tried The Gap? Thats where I found mine during my last pregnancy. Just pulled them out. Forgot how comfy they are! Im with ya on the naps and insomnia. I think the naps are contributing to my inspiration my insomnia at night....definitely not the cause though. Even on the days I don't nap, I still feel wired at bed time and again in the wee hours of the morning. :/

    1. Thank you! It is a sweater dress from Nordstrom, but it's about 5+ years old... It has seen plenty of wears. I'm a huge fan of sweater dresses and this one has a gorgeous cowl neck that you can't see due to my scarf!
