Happy Monday friends! I’m back again with another bumpdate and I must admit that this week was probably the best week yet. I honestly can say that I feel the most back to myself so far. I love being able to be productive again and
drink enjoy coffee!
Size of the Baby: Pomegranate – about 5.12 inches
Total Weight Gain: 5 pounds
Gender: We find out two weeks from today! I think we have an official name if it’s a girl too! I’m so excited.
Symptoms: Honestly not much this week! I still get bloated on and off depending on what/how much I eat. I still get tired quicker when I’m doing something active. Oh and I still am more emotional than normal. I had a bit of a breakdown the first day I turned 17 weeks just from a bunch of things that felt like they were building up. Other than that though I feel pretty normal and I am so very thankful for this part of pregnancy!
Movement: I still am not positive if I definitely can feel baby or not! I just feel hard spots every once in a while so I’m not sure if that’s braxton hicks or the baby.
Sleep: I bought a pregnancy pillow this week! (You can check it out here if you’re interested in which one – affiliate link.) I honestly kind of have a love/hate relationship with it right now haha. Some nights it’s the best thing ever and some nights I kind of hate it. I think it’s a matter of getting used to sleeping with it because it’s definitely an adjustment. I do love how it supports my back and hips though. If I knew what I know now about it I would definitely have bought just a regular C-shaped pillow instead but oh well.
Missing: Honestly nothing this week woohoo!
Exercise: I have definitely been more active this week, which makes me very happy! I went on a mile walk one day with Tommy and our dog. Another couple of days I was super active inside the house so I’m totally counting that as exercise because I was sore and tired afterwards! This week I want to do more walking, which I will be doing because we’ll be at the beach! I also want to start incorporating some YouTube videos also.
Nursery: We bought our first piece of furniture for the nursery! I honestly couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been researching gliders and rocking chairs like crazy lately and found a really adorable one on Amazon. It was on sale for $178 and I had to get it because it was such a great deal!
I’ll link it here if you are interested in checking it out. It’s still on sale and the perfect little rocker if you are a smaller person and also have a smaller room you want to put it in. (Also an affiliate link!)
Tommy is: excited about the possibility of having a little girl. He’s always wanted a little girl so we’re both excited to see what this little baby is.
Looking Forward To: Continuing to put together the baby’s room, finding out the gender, and going on our “babymoon”!
Best Moments: Going to BuyBuyBaby and looking at the different stroller options! That was seriously so much fun.
