I'm a day late with this week's Bumpdate since I was traveling back from California yesterday. We had an AMAZING time in Napa for the past few days and I cannot wait to tell you all about it! For now, here is my 17 week Bumpdate!
How Far Along: 17 Weeks!
Baby is the size of: an onion
Total weight gain: 7 pounds (Soon, I will be the heaviest I've ever been...sigh....)
Best Moment of the week: Besides meeting Clinton Kelly and having the most incredible vacation in Cali?! (More on our trip to come soon!) Maybe reading through our baby name book on the plane and narrowing down some boy name options. Still nowhere near deciding on anything, but making a good head start! I also started to set up some of our baby registries, and trying to figure out how I want to do it (i.e. where to register for which products, how many places, and what products to register for)
Worst Moment of the week: The plane ride out to Napa on Friday. My stomach was so queasy for the second half of the trip. Not "I'm going to hurl" queasy...but just very unhappy with me. I thought that it might be because my eating schedule was all thrown off and I was eating differently, but my stomach felt the same way coming home on Monday...but I was able to sleep through most of it, so it wasn't as bad. Once I got back onto ground, my stomach felt much better.
Miss Anything: Just like last week it was hard to be at a wedding at a winery and not drink the wine, it was a little sad to be in Napa Valley and not be able to try any of the wines! I did participate in two wine tasting classes and spit it out into my "spittoon", so I "tasted" the wine, just didn't consume any! I was glad I was still able to participate in the class...but I could only "taste" wines for so long and didn't want to do that at any of the specific wineries.
Food Cravings: Fruit and cheese
Anything make you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show? Yep! I'm still kind of in that gray area where people wouldn't necessarily say anything to me for fear of them being wrong. I'm also sort of wearing very loose clothes that somewhat hide it, so I'm not "so obviously pregnant" but if you know I am, you can certainly tell, especially depending on the way I'm standing.
Gender: Team Green!
Symptoms: Remember that time last week when I didn't have much of an appetite? Haha that was a funny joke. This week my appetite came back with a vengeance! Hungry ALL the time! Also - my stomach was very itchy from the growing skin. AND, I hate to say it...but I def. have stretch marks on both of my sides :(
Workouts: Prenatal Yoga and lots and lots of walking! I hit a record with steps and miles walked last week!
Mood: Excellent, I was on VACAY! I was nervous about traveling pregnant. Would I be too tired? Would I have to run to the bathroom every two seconds? Would I constantly be hungry? But I felt really great our entire trip! (Minus the whole upset stomach on the airplane thing)
Looking Forward to: Feeling the baby move. Could be any day now!
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much lived in my Target Turquoise capri maternity pants for two days of vacation. I think I may wear those and my Old Navy Maxi dresses from here on in.
Reading: Finished The End of Your Life Book Club - review coming soon!
Milestones: Baby spent this week developing sweat glands (bleh), and is starting to grow its own fat (join the club)
