BumpDate: 17 Weeks

What I'm craving?: Salt, hamburger - our menu pretty much consists of all things that involve hamburger meat. The Husband mixes it up with chicken, but I'm still weird about it, so it just depends on the day.  Salads.  Love my veggies, but that's not anything different.  Not so into the sweets or fruits really, but I love juice right now especially V8 Fusion.

Funny/Memorable Story Of The Week:  Last weekend, the Hubs brought out his guitar and trumpet and he and Mia had a jam session.  It was the cutest thing EVER to date!  My favorite part of the whole night was when Mia looked and me and said, "Momma, the dogs don't like it, but we're rockin' out!"  She was having so much fun!  And girl can play the trumpet better than I can.

Weight Gain: Two more weeks until my next appointment, so I'm not sure.  I don't keep track at home.

Work Out Regimen: Still very light.  Should be more, but it's not and that's ok.  I need to pick it up a little though, I have a 5K coming up in November.

What's Different?:  My skin.  I'm breaking out like a 13 year old or a stressed out 18 year old (see also: freshman year of college and 3 a days during volleyball season).  I even broke out on my neck this week.  I mean seriously?  Ew.

Boy or Girl:  Still boy as far as I'm concerned.  Either that or I'm just experiencing a pregnancy almost completely unlike my first.

Sleep:  Hit or miss, but I really can't complain.  The cool weather + lots of blankets + sweatpants + sleep = love.  Most weeknights I'm in bed by 8:30-9:00.

Labor Signs: Nada.

Movement: Lots of somersaults going on in there.  Yesterday was a very active day.

What I Miss:  Being able to stand up without getting lightheaded.  Yep.  That time has come.  I just need to slow it down a bit.

What I'm Looking Forward To: My Mom's birthday celebration and getting my carpets cleaned this weekend.  Food and cleanliness makes me happy.

How Baby's Growing: This week the baby is the size of a turnip at about 5 ounces and 5 inches long. The skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone.

The Big Sister:  This is such a great age and we are having so much fun doing all of our fun fall things.  We planted our mums, visited the pumpkin patch and have decorated for Halloween.  She is into every single bit of it all and it makes my season loving heart very happy!  We are gearing up for her #3 birthday party next month and she's so excited!  How is my baby almost 3?

Happy Friday!  Have a great weekend!

My skin is so bad too. Not a fun part of pregnancy, that's for sure.

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Haha. Love that they were "rocking out!"

You look great! Creeping up on the halfway mark already, crazy!

Kelli said... look just like Drew Barrymore in your face mask photo. You are adorable. :)

And yeah, that whole "pregnancy glow" thing that people always talk about? NEVER happened to me. I had terrible skin with every pregnancy.

Whoever "they" are...they're all liars. ;)

I agree with the above comment-- DO look like drew barrymore with that mask on wow!!!

I had bad skin for both of my girl pregnancies, but for my son? My skin was the best ever... who knows if it had anything to do with gender :)

You look adorable!
