Tomorrow I’m 17 weeks pregnant. Craziness. This pregnancy is flying by even though the sickness it’s brought has made it feel like forever some days. I do have some fabulous news though, today is the FIRST day I haven’t been sick! I pray that this is my new normal. Anyhow, I am slowing getting caught up on the blog. Between being sick, trying to get some work done and napping while AG naps, I haven’t had much time. The good news is I’m headed home to FL next week and will have LOTS of spare time to catch up! Until then, here are weeks 13, 14 & 15!
Gender: The ultrasound tech told us what she thought at our appt this week. We’re keeping it a secret until we know for sure at the end of May.Movement: Nothing yet.
Sleep: Crazy dreams. Some nights are more comfortable than others, thankful for my preggo pillow.
Cravings: Salad, ice cold drinks (lemonade)Aversions: Sweets, coffee, cereal
Symptoms: Still very tired and sick. Thankfully the all day sickness has seen to disappear and only mornings are rough. The back pain has been better this week.
What I Miss: Intense workouts. I love to eat and I love to workout hard to eat what I want. I’ve been able to do a bit more in the gym compared to the beginning of the pregnancy which feels good. I miss running intervals. Even though I know I can run it just feels weird to me.What I’m Looking Forward To: Officially saying goodbye to the first trimester.
Best Moment This Week: My hair appointment! I waited to the end of the first trimester to make my appt and haven’t been since December. It was MUCH needed!
Week 14 **I forgot to take a picture this week =-(**
Gender: Announcement at the end of MayMovement: Nothing yet.
Sleep: Much better this week. Still having insane dreams but I’ve been much more comfortable.
Cravings: Anything cold, including ice creamAversions: Hot drinks, coffee
Symptoms: Still pretty tired and have morning sickness. Thankfully it’s only lasting until about 10am these days. Back pain is still minimal.
What I Miss: Wine and turkey sandwiches!What I’m Looking Forward To: More energy. Not feeling like I need a nap as soon as AG goes down for hers.
Best Moment This Week: AG started rocking and singing to her baby dolls. She now points to the baby in mommy’s tummy and give kisses. She’s going to be such an amazing big sister!
Gender: Announcement at the end of MayMovement: Three itty bitty kicks this week. It must have been the way I was sitting. I couldn’t believe it, three little jabs in a row. Loved it!
Sleep: Lots of tossing and turning throughout the night.
Cravings: Salads, veggies, ranch dip, pretzels and mustard have been a go to snackAversions: hot drinks, chocolate
Symptoms: Morning sickness continues. Exhaustion does too.
What I Miss: Working during nap time.What I’m Looking Forward To: Easter festivities with the family.
Best Moment This Week: Not quite pregnancy related but taking AG to her first Easter egg hunt. It’s hard to believe we will have two little ones next year!
