Goodness I have been a horrible mom-to-be blogger. Kudos to all of you people that successfully post a bumpdate every week. I am officially 17 weeks but here’s a small ode to week 16.
How far along?: 17 weeks pregnant
Total weight gain: I have been eating ALL the time this week. +3lbs but still down from my pre-baby weight
Maternity clothes: Last week I broke out my maternity yoga pants and this week I busted out the maternity khakis for a work convention [super comfy]
Stretch marks: None. Here’s hoping this lasts.
Sleep: Between bathroom breaks and a sore back, sleep is getting pretty difficult
Best moment this week: Not this week but last week I got to hear the baby’s little heartbeat at our 16-week checkup. And I think the tiny bubbles I feel are the baby moving around!
Miss anything?: Caffeine
Movement: Nothing consistent but I think the bubbles I feel are baby moving.
Food Cravings: Seasoned fries and any other potato product
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Pasta and heavy amounts of bread.
Gender: Still a surprise. Finding out in November. I’m still guessing boy.
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Nothing new
Belly button in or out?: In
Wedding rings on or off?: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and calm.
Looking forward to: Can’t wait to find out what the little is!
Exercising still?: Still running around 3 times each week. Still lifting as well. This week the hubs and I completed a 5k together. Super slow, but tons of fun.
The hubs and I ran our first 5k together. I ran cross country and track throughout jr. high all the way to college and a few half marathons since and he’s ran a 5k before but we’ve never done one together. We ran the Dragstrip Dash, which since he drag races, was a great combination of our hobbies.
