17 week bumpdate
Let’s talk about the fact that this tunic doesn’t necessarily enhance the bump, but I’m not going to lie – it’s probably one of the most comfortable things I own right now. It’s crazy how much faster this belly has popped out this time around. I’ll have to do a comparison soon, since the difference is pretty wild. Anyway, on to the bumpdate.
How far along? 17 weeks
Baby is now the size of: A pear
Gender: We’ll be finding out on December 3rd!
Maternity clothes? Yup! And you can read some of my tips and tricks for shopping for maternity clothes here.
Movement: Yes! Oh, how I love the kicks. They’re still not super consistent, but I feel at least a little something every day now.
Food cravings: STILL carbs and salt, with the occasional Ice Capp and apple fritter. So, does that mean boy or girl?
Food aversions: None this week.
Favorite meal this week: I made a one-pot chicken fajita rice dinner and it was pretty unreal if I do say so myself.
Emotional moment this week: Hearing this little baby’s heartbeat on Thursday. I will never get tired of hearing that sound. 160 beats per minute and going strong. Which is almost the exact same as Luke’s was, so we’ll see if that means boy!
Best moment this week: Luke had a magical Santa photoshoot that I am so excited to see.
Labour signs? Nope!
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings off or on? On.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender and feeling more and more big kicks and movements.
