How Far Along: 17 weeks
What is Baby G Up To?: Baby G is the size of an onion. He or she is turning cartilage into bone and putting on some fat. It really is crazy when you think about all the growth that is happening, especially from the first few weeks. Baby G is now a proportional baby in that his or her arms and legs are in proportion to it’s head and body. From here, her or she will just grow!
How I’m Feeling: Tired. I make it through the work week okay, but when I hit the weekend, all I want to do is sleep. I’ll take exhausted over sick every time, but I’m just not used to having to take naps to make it through the day. I haven’t taken a sip of coffee since week 6, so my caffeine intake is non-existent. That may be good for the baby, but it’s not great for my productivity. I also haven’t been working out as much as I would like to, which is probably another reason I’m not feeling energized. Juneau and I did take a long walk yesterday though, and I felt great afterwards.
What I’m Wearing: Still fitting into my own clothes, but I did buy a pair of maternity jeans this weekend. The day is coming, and coming soon.
What’s On My Mind Lately: I can’t believe I’m 17 weeks! That’s nearly halfway! May always seemed sooo far away, but after the holidays we will be in the 20s! Time is flying.
What I’m Craving: Carbs – pasta, bread, bagels, potato chips. Don’t worry Mom, I eat my fruits and veggies, too! I just don’t crave them 🙂
What I’m Looking Forward To: Still looking forward to Christmas break. Eight more work days!
Best Moment of the Week: I announced my pregnancy at work on Friday at our holiday party. I thought everyone would have known since I think I look pregnant, but the majority of folks were surprised. It was pretty cute!
