It's been a crazy time in my every day life. But, this blog post is not about that, it's about our little growing munchkin!
So far, my pregnancy has been going on without a hitch. No morning sickness, no unusual symptoms of any kind. Sometimes, I even wonder if I am really pregnant. The only difference is my growing belly and my gigantic boobs. Sorry, if its TMI but its true!
We have purchased a few things since last time I updated! We had been looking at the Baby Trend Expedition stroller for some time since we liked the 3 big wheels, the cup holder with built in ipod dock, the kids cup holder and car seat with base all-in-one!
So, of course, Babies r Us had a "madness " sale or something like that and the stroller was $150 off. So we got it :) Our first big purchase and definitely not the last. We also bought the much recommended Diaper Genie! This was my husband's favourite purchase :) We sat down a while back to write up what we potentially needed and it got so overwhelming, we put the list aside! We might know what we need, but with the different brands out there, we'll need to do a little more research! Any must-buy items, please let me know what you bought that you felt was necessary!!
A few weeks ago, I had my normal 4-week appointment with the doctor and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat! It was the first time hearing it and it was great to hear it since I can't feel it it move yet! It's too bad my hubby wasn't there to hear it :( I also found out that I got assigned an OB/GYN. I had been waiting since my first appointment to the doctor, 8 weeks ago! I will be seeing her on November 8!
Let's get to the stats, shall we:
Weight Gained: I don't weigh myself often but I think I may have gained about 8lbs so far.
Workouts: Besides a few walks, I haven't done much and not proud of this. I have no excuses but I have been running around like a chicken without a head and trying to survive the next few months! Hoping to do some more walking and maybe a few other workouts this week :)
Labor Signs: Nope!
- headaches :(
- Sore boobs; are these things ever going to stop growing?? I wear a sports bra to bed since I found out since they are so big! On the bright side, the hubby likes it :)
Movement: Not yet! Hopefully soon!
Food Aversions: Not really! I am trying to eat more vegetables :)
Food Cravings: Same as the previous post! Pasta and savory things. Cheesy foods are still on top of my list. Grilled cheese have almost become a daily occurrence.
Sleep: Fall asleep easily but if I wake up in the middle of the night, I have to go pee :( When I don't wake up, it's like a party in the morning!
Stretch Marks: Nope!
Miss Anything? Wine! The one thing I miss since being pregnant :)
Fun and/or Interesting things from the past weeks: Listening to the baby's heartbeat! I cannot wait till my next appointment this week and hear it again!! We are having our next ultrasound on October 23rd and we will hopefully find out if we are having a little boy or girl :)
Belly Pictures: I still don't feel like its showing in pictures but it is starting to show slowly but surely!
|At 17 weeks + 4 days|
|You can see a little difference here!|
Tell me, if you had a baby before, what was the best part of your pregnancy?
