17 Weeks

Chalkboard done with assistance from big sis, can you tell? :)

How far along:  17 weeks. Technically 17 weeks 5 days at this point, but who's counting? ;)
Gender:  Still thinking boy.  Almost everyone was guessing girl at first, but it seems like we are getting more boy guesses lately!  We will find out soon and cannot wait.
Belly button in or out:  Playing halfsies most of the time - top out, bottom in.
Maternity clothes:  Been on the hunt for a good pair of maternity jeans that won't break the bank.  My go-to is Old Navy but there is absolutely nothing in my size and there hasn't been for the past couple months - recommendations are welcome!!
Stretch marks:  Nothing yet.
Sleep:  Sleeping with a stuffy nose this week was tough, but I'm finally feeling better.
Best moment of the week:  Another doctor's appointment confirming all looks good with baby (and me)!  Heartbeat was at 136 this time and hearing it again was so nice.
Worst moment of the week:  Definitely just being sick.  Trying to keep up with Ellie is so much harder, but having a few extra sets of helping hands in the house was much appreciated!
Miss anything:  Any extra energy I might have had before I got pregnant.
Movement:  Yes!! Some stronger kicks that even Tyler could feel.  I looked back to when I was pregnant with Ells and that happened around 19 weeks last time, so definitely a little earlier and I'm not complaining! The best. :)  
Cravings:  Pizza, ice cream, candy, yogurt, fruit, peanut butter.
Queasy or sick:  Feeling good.
Looking forward to:  Finding out if baby is a boy or a girl.  My next appointment cannot come soon enough!!

I do realize these pictures aren't the greatest lately.  We have no idea where the hardware to hang the chalkboard is, no idea where I want to hang it yet and currently no room to hang it. I'm just happy to get the pictures taken at all at this point, but soon enough we'll be back in business around here! :)


  1. I love the maternity jeans at h&m! They're like $40 but so worth it! They don't look like old lady maternity jeans haha :)

    1. I will definitely check them out!! I always shop for Ellie there but rarely myself lol. Thanks for the suggestion! :)

  2. I got great deals on maternity jeans at motherhood. I know you are running out of time (and room!) but if there is a sale (usually 30% off), they are worth it - especially the Jessica simpson ones.
