Baby S: 17 Weeks

I completely failed this week and didn't take an official 17 week comparison photo so these pre-workout pictures will have to do!

Catch Up on Previous Baby S Updates!

What Fruit are you? Turnip

Due date:  1/3/16

How far along:  17 weeks, Every Sunday is a new week for me.

Next appointment:  August 13th is my 20 week ultrasound the hospital I am going to be delivering at (That was weird to type) and August 14th is my 20 week OB appointment because I will be out of town the following week so having it 2 days early wasn’t a problem according to my doctor.

Total weight gain/loss:  As of now nothing. By August 14th I am sure that will change.

Exercise:  As I have mentioned making it to 4 classes a week is my current goal, come fall when my Spin instructor adds 2 of his classes back that will change. This week I made it to all 3 Tabata classes but spin on Thursday didn’t happen due to not feeling well all day. Working out is important but listening to my body is even more important right now. I also take 3-4 30 minute walks with the dogs every day.
  I am currently in the market for a great at home Prenatal Yoga DVD. I think this would be something to add into my current routine/days I don’t want to go to the gym in the colder months. I don’t want to go to a Yoga studio because they are pricey and I already spend enough on a gym membership, so if you have any suggestions please send them my way!

Maternity clothes:  I picked up another pair of my new favorite workout pants from Target. They are grey which I tend to steer clear of because I sweat entirely too much that I get embarrassed when it looks like I peed my pants BUT they were on clearance so I couldn’t resist.

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases?  Oh Zulily, you are becoming increasingly dangerous for me. I ordered 4 different onesies over the span of two days. But how can I resist the cuteness!?

 Eddie LOVES dinosaurs and I had pictured making an entire dino-nursery if we were having a boy but alas we are not so these onesies will have to do.

 When I saw this I couldn't resist! Hopefully Max will love it on Molly as much as I love it now.

 Given the amount of burpees we do in a single Tabata class (don't worry I've stopped them for the rest of this pregnancy!)  I knew I had to buy this one.

Sleep:  I cannot believe I am about to say this but I slept through the night every single night this week. My head hit the pillow at 10-10:30 and I was out cold until 6-6:30 the next morning.  HALLELUJAH!

Food cravings:  Ice cream- BIG TIME. This hot weather has got to go.

Food aversions:  Same old, raw/grilled chicken and the smell of BBQ or charcoal

Symptoms:  Constant thirst. I cannot drink enough ice cold water these days! Eddie and I signed up for an at home water delivery service back in January as we cannot fit a water filter on our kitchen sink and originally we thought 2-5 gallon jugs would be enough for us for the month. Well I just set up our August delivery and we’re up to 5-5 gallon jugs. I finished 3 in a little over a week and a half!

                    Hunger. I feel like I spent most of this week eating! All of a sudden I find myself starving every 2 hours which is a first but according to my “What to Expect App” that is a common symptom for this week as this is the time the baby starts doubling in size. So in that case, BRING ON THE BOTTOMLESS PIT FEELINGS

Movement:  YES! I felt her for sure the first time on Friday. It’s not constant yet but I feel her after I eat or when I lay on my left side. She has so much room still that I think it will be awhile before I feel any consistent rolls/kicks but I’ll take what I have for now.


What I'm looking forward to:  Shopping this weekend for more pieces for the nursery.

Best moment this week: Finally feeling those first movements.


  1. Love the outfits! Baby clothes are so cute. :) With a girl, you are going to go nuts, I'm sure. LOL

  2. Why can't she have a dino-nursery? Girls can like dinosaurs, too! :)
