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!

Sleep:
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:
None.

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

Movement:
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.

Gender:
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 ::
