17 weeks pregnant

I’m 17 weeks pregnant!
If you missed it, check out my 16 weeks pregnant post!

So this week Seychelles baba apparently weighs as much as a turnip (140g) and is around 13cm crown to rump!!  Also it can move all it’s joints and the little skeleton is hardening into bone from cartilige!  (I can’t wait to be able to say he or she!)

Here’s me this week:

17 weeks pregnant

Excuse the toddler mess on the floor!!  I realise looking at this, that I also really should put a bit of make up on before sharing these bump shots haha!


Bump measurement:

35.5 inches (+1 inch from last week)

We have started to look at names!!!  We were planning on waiting until we know whether we are having a boy or a girl, but we found the baby name book we had for Arthur in the move!
We have really not got anywhere with it but it’s really exciting to start looking!


Movement!!!  Definitely!  Last week I was pretty sure I was starting to feel it, and this week it’s getting really strong!  Particularly after I eat chocolate, if that’s not an excuse to eat more I don’t know what is!!

Last night it was really really strong, I know this seems way too early for this to happen but Mark could actually feel it which was amazing!

I still have been getting pain in my leg, BUT, I actually had a couple nights without it this week which was amazing

I have a lovely “mask of pregnancy” blemish on my face, in exactly the same place I had it with Arthur!  Ahh the pregnancy glamour continues!!!!

Arthur continues to be wonderful with my bump, it really is so cute how excited he gets about it!!

No real cravings or dislikes this week!!

I have a midwife appointment on Thursday and I should be getting my date for my next scan which I’m really excited about!
I’ll be back next week with my 18 week pregnancy update.
