Unfortunately I had gotten sick the morning we took the pictures so I wasn't feeling very photogenic
Thoughts: In case you missed it, Saturday we announced that baby Hart is a boy! We are over the moon with excitement and can really start imagining after he is born. For those of you asking, we have a few baby name ideas but nothing set in stone and we are going to save the announcement until he is born (I know, annoying right?).
Baby: He is the size of a turnip this week, about 5.5inches long and has mastered the art of yawning (cute huh?). His skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone and his sweat glands are starting to develop (and if he takes after his dad, he will have a LOT of them!).
Symptoms: It's funny so many people said I was having a girl because I was so sick but our little man is just as difficult! Still on Zofran and have been getting sick every 3 days so will continue on it until I see some relief. I've also been getting bloody noses once a day or every other day. I can no longer use my abs to get up or move around so it's been interesting to get out of chairs, off the couch, go from laying down to sitting up, etc. Tailbone pain has been outrageous.
Sleep: I've noticed 75% of the time I sleep on my left side which is what is recommended but I do wake up on my back quite a bit during the night. I sleep with 2 pillows so my head is elevated though. Jon and I are cuddlers so he sleeps draped over me with his hand on my belly usually. Last night going to bed I was jealous because he was sleeping on his tummy, no pillow, and arms under him...my pre pregnancy sleep position!
Cravings/aversions/eating: nothing really new this week. Eating more meats and fruits and a little too many desserts and sweets...whoops!
Workouts: 4 times this week...weights and my new favorite...Turbo Kick! I modify a lot of the moves but I feel so good after class. I may try to take Zumba in the next few weeks.
Clothes: I can still wear non maternity but have to use a rubberband to keep the clasp closed. I've noticed some tanks are getting shorter (workout tanks) and I've started wearing some maternity tops. I have about 5 maternity dresses that don't quite fit me yet but I can't wait to start wearing.
Random: I am pretty sure I felt my first flutter this week at church. We were standing front row during worship and I had my hand on my tummy and I felt little bubbles. I grabbed Jon and started crying...our son must love loud praise music! And from then on my tummy has felt very fluttery.
I absolutely love this frame that was given to us by my aunt. She bought it at a boutique but I found it online here. Can't wait to put a picture of our munchkin in there, outside the womb.
We haven't decided on colors for the nursery but the baby room has a Jack and Jill bathroom that attaches to another spare room (baby #2) and we had the bathroom painted a light brown to keep it neutral. I spruced it up this week with free printables from Pinterest and cheap clipboards.
Told you baby Hart is fashionable. Pumas, Chuck Taylors, Vans and TOMS are on the way!
I posted this last night on IG asking if anyone else was this big at 17 weeks because other people I know barely have a bump! Turns out us shorties have no where for it to go but out, and boys tend to make you show earlier I guess? Regardless I love it and can't wait til it gets bigger!
Question: what are your favorite websites/Etsy shops for fabric by the yard?
