I think at a time like this, we need reminders of the good there still is in the world. I hesitated when thinking about posting this week’s pregnancy update, but I think we all need a little more happiness in the world of social media right now. I hope nobody thinks this is insensitive, selfish, or inappropriate.
How far along? 17 weeks [and 4 days]!
Baby is the size of an … Onion! Baby F is 5.1 inches long and weighs 5.9 ounces. Getting big!
How has (s)he changed this week? Our little peanut is fattening up and turning rubbery cartilage into bone.
So far, I’ve gained … Not sure. Haven’t weighed myself this week.
Sleep has been … Better than last week. Lots of toilet breaks in the night.
I feel … Extremely emotional about everything after the week’s earlier events.
I miss … Medium rare steak!! Well done steaks just aren’t the same.
Craving … Cereal with milk! I never eat cereal but have been having a bowl before bed almost every night as my dessert.
Keep me away from … Nothing. =) Everything (that is cooked well done) is fair game.
Symptoms? Carpal tunnel, mild headache once or twice a week, and stuffy nose!
Gender? We’re going to let Baby F surprise us.
Maternity clothes? A pair of work pants, but it’s time to shop for some tops. Most of mine are too short now.
Movement? None yet.
Exercise? Just walking.
Healthy eats? Salad, cantaloupe, watermelon, apples, eggs, and veggies!
Splurges? Nutella cookies that our friend Christina made for us. Yummy!
Wedding rings on or off? Still on.
My best moment was … Making myself take Tonto for a walk the other night even though I was dead tired. It gave me a much needed energy boost.
Looking forward to … Our 18 week ultrasound appointment next week and finally feeling baby kicks!
