17 weeks

How far along?: 17 weeks
How big is baby?: Baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and is around 5 inches long from head to bottom.
Weight gain?: I am up 5 pounds.
Stretch marks?: I have been lathering on the olive oil.
Maternity clothes?: Still rocking the leggings and yoga pants. I can't wait for the warmer weather to hit so I can start wearing dresses.
Food cravings?: I am in love with smoothies. They are a must each and every day! I will share my favourite smoothie recipe with all of you soon.
Sleep?: Still not happening! I am beginning to think I will never have a good night's sleep again.
Gender?: Had my OB appointment yesterday and we scheduled our next ultrasound. Fingers crossed at the end of the month we will know the gender of this little bean.
Exercise?: Still trying to keep up with my daily walks - having kids that want to be outdoors is the only reason this takes place since I would usually rather be taking a 30 minute cat nap.
What's been going on? I still have the joy of morning sickness, but then the rest of the day I am fine. It now has become "normal" to me and I don't even think twice about it. I was so excited a couple days ago as I was able to feel the little one kick for the first time. I know this is baby #3, but it still felt like I was experiencing it for the very first time. I still sit in awe because I can't believe another little human being is growing inside of me. I had my OB appointment yesterday and everything is looking good. The heartbeat was strong, I could listen to that sound all day long!

  1. You look great - you really have the pregnancy glow, lucky you! I hope the morning sickness goes away soon.

  2. Thank you! This little one is giving me hard time but we have had a few chats and I am hoping he/she gives me a break soon :)
