17 weeks

After many attempts of trying to get a pic of my ever growing baby bump, I finally just submitted to the ones that we caught on camera. 
Apparently, my puppy thought I was crazy taking pictures of myself as I stood there clicking as he kept trying to get my attention. 
But here we are at 17 weeks of pregnancy!

Here are my symptoms at 17 weeks:

Fatigue: not really too fatigued anymore. Exhaustion simmered down and I honestly feel like I can take the world by storm. I have THAT. MUCH. ENERGY. I used to hit a wall at 6 A.M, but the past couple weeks at home and here, I've been able to stay up waaaaay past my bedtime...maybe to stay up for just one more  episode of The Walking Dead.

Food Cravings: I haven't had too many cravings for anything, however my appetite is back and in full swing. I'm happily eating, and slowly going back to my usual healthy choices of food. My food aversion in the past kept me from wanting anything healthy related, but it's all coming back to me and I'm thrilled! (now, to just get back in the gym to keep off any extra weight...)

Nausea: Not feeling it at all! Like I said, I feel good!

I'm loving this stage of pregnancy. Being at home with my family seemed to rejuvenate me in numerous ways - especially eating my mom's amazing cooking each meal. I can't even tell you how scrumptious everything she makes it. But I believe it triggered my hunger stage and allowed me to eat well again!

I bought my first couple pairs of maternity pants - mom found them for a great price and great style...I dare you to guess which of my pants are maternity and which are regular skinny pants! Didn't think I'd need them for a couple more weeks, but after working in a couple of my skinny pairs, the waist band is getting kinda tight! Might be taking those babies out sooner than I thought:) 

Yay for 17 weeks! My baby is supposed to be as big as a red onion and about 5 ounces. We're almost to the gender reveal week, which we'll hit at 20 Weeks of pregnancy!
