17 Week Bump Update!

I've been wanting to do these bump updates ever since I've started seeing them all over blog world! How fun to remember your pregnancy week by week! I guess I'm a little late in starting... but better late than never ;)

Unfortunately I don't have a picture this week! I feel so bad, I only have a couple of bump pictures so far this pregnancy! Mainly because my camera has been dead and I wasn't able to find the charger (just found it this morning, YAY!) and because the pictures that have been taken are on my mom's camera! I have to get her to email them to me and then I'll add them :)

17 Weeks Pregnant!

Size of the baby: Our little baby is as big as a sweet potato! 5 1/2 inches long and weighing in around 5 ounces :)

Symptoms: Really exhausted this week. I came down with a cold so that's not helping things :( I've just been really achy and sore and starting to feel bigger which is probably adding to it all :(

Cravings: This whole pregnancy, I just haven't been able to get enough cereal! Haha! I just want cereal 24/7!!! Something about the cold cereal with refreshing milk is so yummy to me! Doesn't really matter what kind! Honey Bunches of Oats, Frosted Mini Wheats, or this week it's been Captain Crunch ;)

Something you miss: Having lots of energy... and being able to lay on the ground with my kids :) I have a lot of back pain and it's always worse while I'm pregnant so I have to be careful with sitting on the floor or any hard surface really. So lame... here I am at 22 and I can't sit on the floor! BOO!

Milestones: I've been feeling the baby move for a few weeks now (since about 13 1/2 weeks), but this week I started feeling baby move even when I'm not sitting perfectly still! So fun to feel those kicks and jumps :)

Weight Gain: So far 4 pounds.

Looking forward to: Finding out baby's sex on November 30! I can't wait to find out if our 3rd little lady is in there or if the first boy is on his way!

How fun you are only 22 and having your 3rd baby-what an amazing blessing! I want lots of babies too :)
I craved cereal through my whole pregnancy-in the beginning it was one of the only things I could stomach!
I hope you get to feeling a little better. Congrats on the precious bundle!

Awesome Claire!! :) I love that you are 22 and expecting your THIRD child... what a great blessing.

Oh, I always love weekly updates :) And since I turn 17 weeks in a few days, it's super fun to compare!

Cereal is my go-to food as well. I think it's because I often get sick/hungry right before bed and it's the most convenient to just grab and eat in bed!

I had gained 4 by my last appointment a few weeks ago .. might be more by now :)

aaawww, I love sweet potatoes so baby's size is perfect. haha

So sorry you've been sick + pregnancy + 2 littles =ing no energy. :( Hope that changes around for you...the feeling better and energy part, not the preg and kiddies. ;)

Can't wait to see real bump pictures!! :)

All I wanted this pregnancy was cereal too! Chris said maybe it is because my body wants calcium from the milk, and that's the best way I can think of to get it. ya for another Flores baby!
