Pregnancy Update: 17 Weeks


I’ve stumbled upon this questionnaire on other blogs and thought it was a great way to track my pregnancy.  I’m sure I’ll regret this weekly picture in a few months but right now it’s sounds like a good idea. So here we go! :)

How far along: 17 weeks and 2 days (every Saturday is a new week).

Baby Size: A tangy pomegranate.  

Total weight gain: About 5-6 lbs.

Maternity clothes: Not yet.  I’m still squeezing into regular pants but changing into yoga pants as soon as I get home.

Sleep: Sleeping well.  Except for my multiple trips to the bathroom each night.

Best moment this week: Running 3 miles outside yesterday. The roads have been covered in snow/ black ice for the past week but the weather was finally mild enough to be outdoors yesterday.

Miss anything: God, I miss wine and caffeine! I also miss being able to run without taking a bathroom break every 10 minutes.

Food cravings: Lots of fruits.  Especially grapefruit, strawberries, clementines, and grapes.

And sweets!

Seriously, I haven’t had (or wanted) a doughnut in years but I’ve had such a sweet tooth lately.

Food aversions: Brussel sprouts and chinese food.  I used to love brussel sprouts so it’s weird how I can’t even look at them right now.

Movement: Nope.  I’m hoping I can feel the baby move any day now…. 

Gender predication: No idea but we’ll find out in 1 week!!! 

Pregnancy symptoms: Just super, duper tired

Labor signs: Nope

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On

What I am looking forward to: Finding out if we’re having a boy or girl!

Did you (or would you) find out the sex of your baby?  Or do you prefer the surprise?



  1. Love this Julie! And love your very tiny belly!
