Bumpdate :: 17 Weeks and Growing!





Top: A Pea In The Pod, Bottoms: Black (Beneath The Belly Band) Slacks, Old Navy


{17 Weeks!}

Total Weight Gained/Loss? I've gained 5lbs since my first weigh-in at 8 weeks. I've said it before and I'll say it again- I cannot gain another 48lbs. with this pregnancy. At least I could blame 10lbs of it on baby the first time around, but still. I just. can't. do. it. 

Maternity Clothes: I've been in maternity jeans since 9 weeks. I'm still managing to squeak by in some of my pre-pregnancy tops from JCrew but let's face it- maternity is just more comfortable. My favorite jeans are my Mavi Maternity Skinnies and a few of my favorite tops are from Isabella Oliver, A Pea in the Pod and trusty Old Navy. 

Sleep: Kind of shoddy. Since I'm relegated to sleeping only on my side now, I've been waking up throughout the night with the most awful hip pain ever. Since I've had C, my right hip tends to ache and feel stiff a lot, but I've easily attributed that to carrying around a nearly 10lb. child. With C, my hip pain didn't start until much later in pregnancy- it's nice to know it's rearing it's ugly head already.  

Best Moment of the Week? Last week, we found out M2 is going to be another sweet baby BOY! Does that count?

Movement? Definitely. I know I said I started feeling it much earlier this time around- closer to 12 weeks rather than the 18 week mark with C. I definitely feel him in there and I can tell he likes to stay curled up on my left side. Lot's of little pokes and the occasional "roll" feeling. So incredibly awesome. 

Food Craving? Candy. Sour candy. Sweet candy. Chewy candy. Candy, candy, candy.  Yogurt with granola. Chipotle/Qdoba burritos. Spicy sushi. 

Food aversions: Sadly? None. I'm pretty much game for anything and everything this time around. Nom. Nom. Nom. 

Morning sickness? For the love of all things holy, WHY am I still nauseous? It was not like this with C. 17 weeks and going strong. Woof. 

Gender? C's going to have a little BROTHER! 

Labor Signs? No thank you.

Belly Button? Out. Like way, way out. Already.

What I miss? With all of the burrito-eating I've been doing lately, I could REALLY go for a margarita. I even asked The Husband to whip up a batch of virgin margs the other day. Shameless, really.

What I'm looking forward to: Hosting my future Sister-in-Love's Bridal Shower on the 21st of this month and our anatomy scan on the 30th!

Happy Friday, Loyals! Have a great weekend!

  4. Such a cute little bump. You are so lucky in the sense that its painfully obviously you are preggers and don't have to go through that awkward "preg? Or just fat?" stage from people - that will be me!

  22. You're making all the other pregnant women look bad. So pretty, AP.

  23. You look so cute!! I'm with you on the maternity clothes. I hear some ladies just "decide" they're not gonna wear maternity, and I think... how do you know you'll just fit into your regular jeans all pregnancy? I mean that's not necessarily something you can decide. That being said... I am definitely on the hunt for some more fashionable maternity than what I currently have in my wardrobe. Here's hoping!

  32. Oh my gosh, when I was pregnant with Monroe my hips hurt so badly and they never really recovered. This pillow saved my life. Unfortunately, I still have to sleep with it or I wake up with aches.

    So much better than a regular pillow because it's slim enough that you can roll over easily. I got mine at walmart for less than 15 bucks. btw-i just googled memory foam between the leg pillow and it actually worked. Good luck!
