I am very excited to share my first baby-centric post with you today. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing baby bump and progress posts. If you’re not like me, well then I hope you allow me to indulge once a week.
Living away from your family makes you want to share this stuff even more. I want them to be part of the journey, even if we cannot “see” each other on a regular basis. So, Moms…I hope you enjoy these.
We took our first baby bump picture a few days ago and I was not a huge fan. I looked at it in the camera and said, “it looks like a mug shot!” That’s when we decided that would be our theme for these weekly photos. So without further ado, here is our first baby bump mug shot…
I first saw the stats below on my blog buddy, Scooter Marie‘s page. I thought it was a great way to update everyone on our progress. Let me know if there is a stat I’m missing that you would like to see and I’ll try to add it.
How far along? 17 weeks
Total weight gain? 15 pounds (I know! I was not sick at all in my first trimester and in fact wanted to eat all the time)
Maternity clothes? Just starting to not be able to button my jeans. I bought a be band to hold up my pants and have used the rubber band through the button hole trick.
Sleep? Ok so far.
Miss anything? Snowboarding and a nice glass of wine every now and again.
Movement? Barely there flutters. Feels like a goldfish swimming through jelly.
Cravings? These have mellowed out for the time being. In the first trimester all I wanted was protein, salty, and spicy.
Aversions? Nope, thankfully.
Gender: Unknown. We’ll find out at our 20-week ultrasound and come up with a fun way to share it with all of you.
Labor signs? Good heavens, no.
Wedding ring on or off? On.
Looking forward to: Feeling more movement and seeing him or her on the ultrasound in a few weeks.
