{made with love} 17 week update

May 20, 2011

well, I promised that I’d keep you all posted! I hope that my 17 week update isn’t too boring 🙂

Day to Day Life: Things are slowly returning to my normal day-to-day routine. I’m staying up a bit later and going to bed around 9:30 or 10 now (which is a huge improvement from the 7pm a few weeks ago!) and sleeping throughout the night. I’m feeling very rested, but still lack a bit of energy come evening-time. I’m still waiting for that burst of energy everyone talks about in the second tri!

Weight: As of last Wednesday, I still haven’t put on any weight. My OB and the nurse didn’t seem to be the least bit concerned. I’m carrying very low, so my waist is still defined. I’m bigger in places I wasn’t so big before so it’s really hard for me to image that I haven’t put on any weight yet! I look in the mirror and feel as though I’ve put on at least 10lbs, but I haven’t. I’m guessing it’s just shifted around.

Fashion: Definitely wearing maternity clothes now! There aren’t many stores in my area that carry maternity clothes, so I’ve been relying on online shopping. I’d say at least 90% of my new wardrobe is from You seriously can’t beat their pricing, and when stacked with coupon codes it’s almost a shame not to cave and buy something new! I have several outfits from Kohls and Motherhood Maternity, too. My favorite outfit? Jean capri’s with strappy sandals and a long tank top OR a bright maxi dress.

Sleep: I’m finding myself staying up later and later every day, sleeping throughout the night, and feeling extremely well rested in the morning.

Cravings: My non-existent appetite has exploded into full-on-hunger. I can’t seem to eat enough! Fortunately for me, my cravings have been healthy foods — hummus, strawberries, watermelon, salads and pickles. Yesterday, I ate three lunches. Yes, three!! With my humongous appetite, I consider myself completely lucky to have not put on a single pound yet.

Movement: Yup! I’ve been feeling slight movement and a popping sensation for the last three weeks now. Just starting this week, I’ve felt distinct kicks and jabs. It’s still few and far between, but it’s an incredible feeling and I can’t wait until it’s more consistent!

Milestones: We’ve chosen a name for our son or daughter, and go for our gender scan on May 25.

Thanks for reading my (very!) long update and allowing me to share this joy with you all!! 🙂


  1. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
