17 Weeks

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

I'm really not planning on doing a whole lot of these, but I decided I should record the information even if just for Ben and I to look back on. I decided to share this one, and I might share more.. but I'm on the fence about it. It's the season I'm walking through right now but as things progress, I may want to keep these posts on private. We'll see. :)

how far along: 17 weeks + 2 days at the time of this photo, 18 weeks tomorrow!

baby size: the size of an apple!

baby's progress: our app says that baby is starting to be able to hear my voice and other outside voices!!! how darling!

weight gain: 6 pounds

stretch marks: not that I've noticed

sleep: Might as well call it Tinkletown USA, and I've started to need to use the snoodle pillow for back support. Shoutout to Polly for letting me borrow hers!

maternity clothes: My stretchy jeans have been rocking the past few weeks, but I'm starting to only really be able to wear flowy tops or actual maternity shirts. The sweater I'm wearing above never actually left the house. I got it during Anthropologie's Black Friday sale and it's so cute.. but it will have to wait till next year. It just makes me look a little awkwardly plump bc of my in between belly.

gender: can't wait to find out on NYE!

movement: twice last week I got suspicious I was feeling movement.. but it's really just too soon to tell I think!

best moment this week: We got to hear sweet baby's heartbeat last Thursday!

looking forward to: I'm a broken record.. but we are giddy about our gender reveal.

food cravings: I don't think I've experienced this yet.

anything making you queasy or sick: 8:30 pm, haha!

labor signs: nope!

symptoms: Sporadic nausea still, even when on my medication.. and acne like nobody's business. Some ligament pain a couple of days a week.


  1. I love this! I was so unpredictable with my bump updates haha it's hard to keep up!!! I hope you keep doing a few though :)

  2. i totally respect your privacy but I loved reading this! I am so excited for you both, its fun to follow along sense I cant hug you in person.

  3. I can't think of a more fun time to find out the gender than on NYE!!! :)

  4. Hi! I only just recently came across your blog, I forget how. I am so glad I did! I saw we were both expecting, but from this post it turns out we are so close! I am 17 weeks 3 days today. So we're not even a week apart! My sweet babys ETA May 15th. I look forward to following and sharing your journey. Enjoy and God bless!

  5. The in-between chub look is so weird..I feel your pain! Speaking from the other side, nothing looks right at 35 weeks either. Pregnancy just isn't fashion-friendly haha!

  6. I totally understand you wanting to keep some things private, but oh how I love to hear your updates and celebrate with your little family!

  7. You look fabulous, Victoria! Try to quit stressing about this in-between time. God has you right where He wants you and is celebrating this baby right along with you. There's nothing at all awkward about your little baby bump. Celebrate it, my sweet friend!
