Second Pregnancy :: Week 17

Second Pregnancy :: Week 17

Age of baby #1:
16 months (which will make them ~21.5 months apart)

How far along:
17 weeks

How big is baby:
the size of an onion (no idea how I don’t have an onion in the house to take a picture of, but this will work for now)

Weight gain:
1 lb. (for a total weight gain of 8 lbs.)

Maternity clothes:
I’m definitely wearing maternity jeans (so much more comfortable than squeezing into my skinny jeans!) and some maternity tops.  This weekend we’re off to Napa where I plan to wear maxi dresses the entire time.

Stretch marks:
None. Fingers crossed I get away without any the second time around as well.

Belly button:
Innie…hoping it stays that way as well!

I’ve been sleeping really well (minus last night when Abigail decided to wake up at 2am). No complaints though.

Best moment of the week:
Cleaning out my closet and moving the clothes I won’t fit in for the next 5 months into “storage” and organizing all my maternity (and non-maternity but spacious) clothes for easy wardrobe assembly. I feel so organized now.

Food cravings:
Burgers…red meat.

Food aversions:

A little bit of heartburn is creeping up from time to time, but overall I feel awesome!

I’m officially convinced that I’m feeling Bean move around.  My doctor said she thought it was a little early, but that it was possible.  The movement is so subtle, but I love it.  It’s by far my favorite part of being pregnant.

No idea, but can’t wait to find out on June 11th at 8:30am!

What I’m looking forward to:
My spa/pool day at the Silverado Resort in Napa on Friday.  That, and finding out what Bean is.  If Bean’s a boy, I just might have to splurge on this bedding I fell in love with this week (the same site I bought Abigail’s bedding from).

What I’m nervous about:
Picking out a name. We were so confident about Abigail.  We’re pretty sure we have a boy name, but if we have another girl we’re in trouble!

What I miss: 
I can’t think of anything specific…sorry, so boring.

Next appointment:
The BIG one!  June 11th at 8:30am.

Comparison to Pregnancy #1:  According to my Belly Book from last time around, I started this blog at week 17 of my first pregnancy.  I wrote, “I started a blog yesterday, inspired by you, Squid!  It’s called 7x7xMommy and it’s going to be all about my experience as a Mommy in San Francisco. It’ll be a great and creative outlet and learning experience.”  So far, I’d say that’s been quite accurate!  Last but not least, here’s a photo of Pregnancy #1 at Week 17 ::
