Pregnancy Update: 17 Weeks!

Gooooood morning! Or afternoon, or evening, whenever you find yourself reading this. It's a beautiful Saturday here in Ohio and I thought a cup of coffee and a pregnancy update sounded like a perfect way to start my day. Week seventeen has been a doozy.

I had a check up this week and we scheduled my anatomy scan! This by far is my favorite ultrasound... baby is the perfect size to see all of his cute little features and movements. It's usually a long ultrasound, and you get so many cute pictures! We go in next week and I can't wait to share with you. Baby had a strong heartbeat and I still haven't gained any weight. Whooo! She said baby is right behind me belly button and I am starting to feel kicks more and more. It makes me even more excited to meet him! After my appointment my mom and I did a little shopping... I am all about a woodland "theme" (I hate that word in reference to babies) and buffalo plaid is giving me life. Tjmaxx had so many cute things but I managed to control myself and only walk away with a few items. How precious is the  receiving blanket set? It has little Pups on it! So obsessed.

New symptoms have cropped up this week which I'm honestly not so excited about. My breasts have been tingling, warm to the touch and stinging. I suspected my milk has been coming in and I was right, I started leaking! I know I should be excited as this is s good sign I'll be able to breastfeed, but it's just one of the not so fun parts of pregnancy for me. Nausea has reared its ugly head once again and I feel sick after every single meal... I was really hoping this pregnancy would be different on the morning sickness front. Along with that I have been dealing with heartburn almost daily. It doesn't make a different what I eat or drink, what position I sleep in... it randomly shows up and it's awful.

It's so funny how each pregnancy differs. With Elizabeth I wanted sweets ALL the time, now I can hardly eat them. I've been craving salty/ savory foods like bacon. Baked bacon to be exact. Just typing that made my mouth water! Bob Evans macaroni and cheese with bacon wrapped chicken and garlic bread.... I want it everyday. Don't worry, I'm aware it's not the healthiest and I've only had it once...I might have to cave this weekend though. Chipotle has also been on my mind almost daily! I can't get enough, it's delicious. And that wraps up this weeks update! If you are expecting, comment and let me know your favorite food craving!

Bless y'all!
