17 week update

How big is baby: The size of an onion | 17 Weeks 6 days

How I'm feeling: I have been feeling so wonderful this week. I had a few very bad days last week, so I'm incredibly thankful to be feeling like myself for a while! 

Weight gain/loss: 3-5 lbs? I still can't really see a difference there yet...not that I'm complaining. My clothes still fit, so I count that as a blessing.

Maternity clothes: I wore my maternity jeans again this week to a shoot but they kept falling down every minute or so! It was super annoying so I doubt I'll be wearing them much until I really need them. Tops are a different story. I know I think way too much about what to wear these days, but finding flattering outfits feels so awkward. I guess I don't like to draw attention to my tiny little bump. I love flowy things these days. My sweet friend Ashley was so kind to let me borrow a few blouses (I didn't have any) for a while!

Stretch marksNope!

Sleep: Sleep is bliss. I could sleep all day.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I have been able to eat anything the past couple of days. I still prefer healthy items over fried and fatty things, but that doesn't mean I haven't indulged some. Let's just say that a cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory and a big, juicy cheeseburger with bacon found their way onto my plate somehow...

Movement: Not really, but I can't wait!

What I'm loving: It's been so fun to plan baby girl's nursery this week. I picked up a few things and chose the color scheme. I think it may become my favorite room in the house!

Symptoms: Nothing new these days. My bump still comes and goes quite a bit. Sometimes I don't even look pregnant at all. Then other days I feel huge. 

Exercise: I haven't been to great about working out this week. Today was the first time I went for a run in at least 6 days. Although, I've been working and traveling a lot. I know I've been able to get some just because my job is pretty physical, but not a lot.

What I'm looking forward to: Moving into our new house so we can start setting things up! Baby girl has been getting some clothes this week, so we kind of need her closet soon. :)

Best moment of the week: I loved purchasing baby girl's first outfit this week. It's so precious!

Mood: I've felt so much excitement this week. I guess it has finally sunk in that we're having a little girl! Thinking about things for when she arrives has become more real...thus, the excitement!
