Bumpdate | 17 Weeks

Sorry for the back-to-back bumpdates.  I'm trying to play catch-up so that my bumpdates are more accurate. 

How far along:  17 weeks (4.25 months) as of 4/23
Size of the baby:  A turnip (is that really the best fruit/veggie they could think of?!)
Gender:  Baby Boy!  You can see all the details from our Gender Reveal here
Maternity clothes:  My sister is giving me some belly bands from her previous pregnancies, so I'm anxiously awaiting those!  Most of my pants are getting a little too snug - eek!  Definitely time to go shopping soon!  I should probably pick up a bigger white tee while I'm at it, eh?
Craving:  Nothing has sounded great lately - probably because I can't taste a whole lot with this pregnancy rhinitis (my chronic congestion has a medical term, apparently).  I also basically have to eat with my mouth open so that I don't pass out from lack of oxygen, so that is super cute and fun as well.
Symptoms:  See above.  I have forgotten what it feels like to be able to breathe out of both nostrils at the same time.
Looking forward to: Looking pregnant!!!  I can't wait to have a distinguishable baby bump instead of just looking like I ate too much ;)
Best moments:  Feeling baby boy move for the first time!  I was relaxing on the couch the other day and I felt a couple of flutters that I'm pretty sure were him.  It was like nothing I have ever experienced before!  I can't wait until he gets bigger and the movement gets more regular!

  5. Haha! My sister always said she was grateful for the 20 week mark when she stopped looking like she had a beer belly and started looking pregnant! Your bump is adorable!
