17 Weeks {Baby Dorey #3}

Thursday, June 8, 2017

Size of Baby: I'm currently 17 weeks and baby weighs about 5 oz + is measuring about 5", or the size of a turnip or pomegranate (depending which app I look at ;)). 

Total Weight Gain: I would say I've gained about 10 pounds. I have an appointment next week so I'll have a better idea then.

Symptoms: I've been feeling great! So happy to have pool days back in our life...which means naps are officially back. I get full pretty quickly when I eat and my tummy definitely feels huge. 

Food Cravings/Aversions: I'm back to pretty much eating anything/everything I want. However, I still haven't gotten into a good dinner routine. I definitely crave salty/comfort food over sweets.

Movement: Still feeling flutters occasionally but nothing consistent or hard.

Purchases: I bought a couple more dresses for myself this past week. Thankfully they're just swing dresses, and not maternity, so I'll be able to continue to wear them next summer. I've done lots of browsing for baby items (which I know I don't need) but haven't pulled the trigger on anything.

Best Moment of the Week: We had a great weekend in Fayetteville--celebrated my birthday, hosted a baby shower for my sister, and spent time with family. Sean and I also had an anniversary date night on Tuesday which was so nice. 

Looking Forward To: The weekend and hopefully some family pool time! And a baby appointment next week!
