Baby Two: 17 Weeks Pregnant

17 weeks pregnant

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 4/20/17 which means I’m 17 weeks pregnant!

Baby is the size of game console controller

Baby is a… one more weeeeeek! Thinking girl based on the crazy high heartbeat. 

Midwife appointment this week? Nope!

Current mood: Stressed. Work has been kicking my booty. 

Cravings: Sweeeeets. Gimme all the easter candy! And root beer and/or cream soda. (the kind with cane sugar)

Food Aversions: Still pizza and onions. And random other things. 

The yucky stuff: This baby is right on my bladder so any time I have to pee even a little I get really bad sharp pains and cramps and it is soooo painful. I’ve also been getting some sharp pains/cramps in my back/kidney area. 

Currently rocking: Black skinny jeans with a hair tie keeping my button “together” and a maternity top. 

The best thing about pregnancy this week? I used my at-home doppler and found babe’s heartbeat! It was bouncing between 165-185 but stayed at 176 a bit. 🙂 The baby was super low, on my bladder/hip bone area. 

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? Jude was not on top of my bladder like this. 

I’m nervous about: Getting everything ready for our Princess or Superhero gender reveal next week!!

Other thoughts: We did a yard sale last weekend and it was so much harder being preggo. I don’t have the stamina I used to. And the sunburn was dreadful. Mid-day I was on the couch so sore and burnt I couldn’t move for like 2 hours. It was pitiful.
