Woohoo! Here I am, all caught up now, 17 weeks pregnant (on week 18) and posting my most recent update. I never thought this day would come after all that first trimester pregnancy fatigue but I stuck it out and kept taking photos, then slowly made my way through editing. Now that I’m feeling better and the energy is coming back I can function at multiple things once again.
So here’s how I’m feeling NOW at pregnancy week 17!
Feeling: STILL dealing with headaches, but not as frequently, or they’re at least slightly more manageable. I have SO much more energy, which is awesome. I can stay up a little longer and be productive. I’m excited to get to sewing and crafting and organizing in the baby room. I’m also excited to get my photography back up and going too. I forgot to note the obvious in this letter… Aside from french fries I’m LOVING Nutella, which I just discovered about a month ago.
Nursery Prep: Nada. But I have about three theme ideas for the nursery which I’ll blog about soon cause I’d love your thoughts.
Sibling Preparations: We haven’t done much yet but try to explain that there’s a baby in my tummy, which I think she’s starting to believe since my stomach is getting noticeably bigger. I want to get some books soon that help explain it to older siblings. If you have suggestions feel free to share!
Boy/ Girl Predictions: I’m still thinking boy. We scheduled our ultrasound for November 19th and the hubs is tempted to find out, but after a heart to heart he said he’s ok not finding out and that it “doesn’t matter.” I also think the more he hears other people demand to know the less he wants to find out early. He is hoping and predicting boy. I’m predicting boy as well.
Other Notes: Crazy pregnancy dreams have begun. I had a dream that I woke up to go to the bathroom and a jellyfish tentacle looking thing was hanging between my legs. When I pulled it by baby and her sack fell into the toilet. I picked her up, and even though she was full newborn sized I was extremely worried about her prematurity and insisted we rush her to a NICU. I woke up relieved but also thinking ‘oh, here we go!’
So excited to meet this kid in a matter of months!!
