Hi my loves!


It's time for my weekly update again :) I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by this time.

How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain: Somewhere between 3 & 3.5kg
Maternity clothes? Still in my regular clothes, but I don't know for how much longer because they definitely don't fit like they used to ;)
Sleep: It's getting harder for me to get comfortable enough to go to sleep, and when I wake up during the night it takes me a while to go back to sleep. 
Best moment this week: My husband could feel a tiny little "pop" on my tummy where the baby was moving.
Miss anything? I miss when it didn't hurt to wear a bra. haha!
Movement: Lots and lots and lots of movements this week ♥
Food cravings: Salt and vinegar chips, Nachos, Spicy food.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I only felt sick one day this week, and then my husband brought me an ice cream - and I felt so much better after eating. I should obviously eat ice cream every day ;) hahaha.
Gender: We are only finding out the gender of this little bug at 18 weeks. I have a feeling it's a girl, but according to old wives tales all my cravings are "boy" cravings.
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: I've had back pain this week, which is not very reassuring because it's still so early on, I feel like it's just going to get worse from here. My belly feels a lot bigger and in general I just feel heavier. I've also started getting braxton hicks contractions, which kind of freaked me out at first because I only started getting them much later on in my first pregnancy, but apparently it's quite common to feel them around this time.
Wedding rings on or off? On, for now. But they are definitely tighter than they were before I got pregnant.
Happy or moody most of the time: This week I've been feeling kind of low, my little girl is visiting my mom this week (which she is SO excited about), and I know I should enjoy the time off because I know she's in good hands, but I just miss her way too much. 
Looking forward to: Abigail coming home on Saturday!

Thank you for reading!
