17 Week Bump Update

Crazy to think I'm nearly half through this pregnancy.  So many things to start thinking about and preparing for.  We need a double stroller so we're starting to research which are the preferred strollers within our budget. Like I said, so many things to start preparing for and these next 10 weeks are the best time to do it.  Before it gets too hot and I get too big to even want to think about it.  I'm so excited because I'm finally starting to see a bump and not so much the pudge!

Due Date? September 27th (will confirm a c-section date as we approach September)

How far along? 17 weeks

How big is baby?  About the size of an onion.  About 5.1" and 5.9oz (up 2.5 ounces from last week and over 1/2 an inch)

Weight gain? +2

Maternity clothes? Mostly maternity pants, every now and again I squeeze into non-maternity. 

Stretchmarks? Nothing new

Sleep? I'm still sleeping!

Best moment this week? Felt flutters for the first time from the outside this week!

Movement? Definitely feeling it from the inside but also started to feel some movement from the outside.

Food cravings? I was craving a gyro on Friday and had a really good one.  Also had some local German food last night that hit the spot.

Gender? We will know May 3rd.

Labor signs? none.

Belly button in or out? In

What I miss? Being able to have a glass of wine when I randomly feel like it.  Or a margarita in a couple weeks on Cinco de Mayo.

What I am looking forward to? Developing a round baby bump versus this transitional phase.

Milestones? Outside flutters.

Next doctor's appointment? May 3rd where we do the full ultrasound check for health & gender.  Last weeks appointment went really well.  She picked up the heartbeat very quickly at 158bpm.  She also did the trisomy blood test and we received results back Tuesday that everything looked really great!



  1. Such an exciting stage of pregnancy! I miss being pregnant already.

  2. You're so cute!! Don't forget to check out Craigslist for strollers :) May 3rd is going to be here before you know it :)
