Week 17


How far along: 17 weeks 4 days

Baby H: weighs 140g and is 13.0 cm from crown to rump, about the size of an Pomegranate.

Gender: Baby H is a BOY, you can read about the reveal HERE.

Total weight gain: + 2.4kg which is the same as last week and I am pretty happy with that, I feel like I am the size of a house this week though!

Sleep: Some nights I sleep like a baby, some nights I toss and turn and cannot seem to get comfortable. I am still occasionally sleeping on my stomach but I have been sleeping more and more on my left hand side with the help of my pregnancy pillow.

Symptoms: This week I have been a little teary and emotional. I am still having the worst pimples of my life and am hoping they will subside soon.

Cravings / Aversions: I have been craving Indian, oranges and potato and gravy. Nothing too crazy, still no real aversions.

Maternity Clothes: My belly definitely popped this week and everything is getting tighter, still wearing larger regular work pants and I hope too keep wearing them for a while but I will have to invest in some more maternity tops.

Exercise: I had a pretty bad week exercise wise, I went to Tuesday night Aqua aerobic yoga classes but that has been it for the week, I need to get some more walking in.

Mood: Excited, tired, emotional & hungry.

Wedding rings: on

Belly Button in or out: Its currently an innie.

Movement: I am pretty sure I felt another flutter on Monday, I cannot wait till they become more regular.

What I miss: Comfortable sleep.

Preaclampisa: Still no warning signs or symptoms yet thankfully.

Best moment of the week: Starting to buy gender specific nursery items.

What I am looking forward to: Hopefully getting some positive feedback from the dietitian I am seeing tomorrow.

It has been another pretty cruzie week, I cannot believe that we are already up to week 17, this is just crazy! This pregnancy has really been a dream so far and we are beyond excited to be having a little boy.

I swear that Wednesdays seem to come round quicker now that I am pregnant and Saturday’s too (that is the start of each new pregnancy week for me).

Do you have any great plus sized maternity wear suggestions?

Did you notice your bump really pop in week 17?

Love, The Hunts xx
