Bump Day -- 17 Weeks

(Not gonna lie, this is letting it out as much as I can, note the weird second mini bump, that's the Easter candy bump. I can still suck a good portion of it in which usually means it's still not all baby. Le sigh. Never thought I'd be bummed I didn't have a belly....or that I would post a picture of my flab on the Internet.)


How far along? 17 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: This week, up 1 pound. Total, still down 2. I think my days of losing are behind me. Oh well, I am growing a human after all!

Maternity Clothes? I'm breaking down and buying some maternity scrub pants. It's just not pretty or comfortable anymore. No body needs to see my crack! Thankfully I found some pants online for only $19.99 a pair. I'm not messing with the tops, I will just wear a maternity tee.

Sleep: Slowly starting to get some more spunk back!

Stretch marks: No, but as I start filling out I'm looking at my stomach with a fine tooth comb, just waiting for one to pop up.

Best moment this week: My MIL has started coming up with "grandma" names when she signs her emails to me. So far we have the Graminator and Gramalicious. I almost peed my pants.

Movement: Yes ma'am! Not much during the day, but as soon as I get home from work and put my feet up it's nonstop swimming in there! I just wonder what he/she is doing...laps??

Food cravings: Well my sweet tooth is back. I wouldn't call it a craving, but I'm definitely indulging in the chocolate a bit more. Damn you irresistible Easter candy!

Gender: I could go either way this week....mother's intuition is starting to wear off. Don't forget to cast your vote!

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? In

What I miss: Feeling cute. I'm in the phase where regular clothes look bad, but maternity is still too big....and naked is by far the worse. Oh, and the zits that keep popping up on my face aren't helping either. We won't even mention the fact that I STILL haven't done anything about my hair and my eyebrows are starting to look outta control. At least once I day I ask my hubby how he can even stand to look at me.

What I'm looking forward to: Looking like a cute pregnant woman with that motherly glow everyone talks about.

Weekly Wisdom: When you continuly hear people balk, "OMG you're FOUR months pregnant?!?" in reaction to your non-existent bump....try not to punch them in the face.

Milestones: Maternity shopping with my mom! It was our first mother-daughter pregnancy experience....I think she got just as big a kick out of that fake bump as the hubs did!

You look great! Don't worry - the bump will come! Yesterday someone told me that my due date must be wrong, since I can't possibly be almost 6 months pregnant. C'est la vie!

Marjorie said...

Don't feel bad, I'm just a little ways behind you and I don't have much of a bump yet either. This is my second so I expected that I would pop out sooner, but nope.

ae said...

i vote for gramalicious! if you do punch them in the face just blame it on the pregnancy;)

Gwen said...

LMAO!!! Easter candy bump!!! I can only blame my newly forming bump on shoving too much crap in my face. ;) XOXO

You're complaining that you have no bump?! Oh just wait...at 8 months you'll have more than a bump. My cuzzo has blown up and not in a bad way. Still looks cute.

Happy weekend!

KLaw said...

I see your bump! Its so cute!!!!!!

I think we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. I look about 6 months and get non stop comments about how huge I am. Thats no fun either. :)

Have a great weekend lady!

It's funny when you're early on people can't believe how you don't have a belly, but as you get further they just assume you're about to pop. You'll have to refrain from punching people again when you still have two months left and they say, "Wow, it'll be any day now"

Brittany said...

I can see a bigger different from last week to this week compared to any other week so far! Sooo exciting!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

You are so lucky to look good and still not have gained weight yet. I remember putting on maternity clothes the day I found out I was preg. both times! MIL is hilarious, but I will always be the baby's "G-Unit". xoxox mom

Jules said...

You are so funny and you’re pregnant, so you can eat as much candy as you want! The maternity scrubs sound like they will be ultra comfy. That is so cute that your MIL is excited to be a grandma and also so cool you can feel the baby move!

I think you look great!
