Pregnancy – Week 17

Week… 17

Baby is the size of… a Turnip

Highlight of the Week… Early this week brought the first time I got emotional about becoming a mom. I typically don’t get emotional when I’m happy or excited, but this time there were tears because we get to bring this little bundle of love into the world. We have so much to look forward to and I’m fortunate to have such an amazing partner to do it with.

Frustration of the Week… Sinus pressure! The weather has been yo-yo-ing all week here in Arizona and the pressure in my head has been off the charts. Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to take anything for it and ice packs on my face at work aren’t exactly discrete. Ha!

Eating a lot of… Veggies and anything cold.

Cute Thing Hubby Did This Week… Hubs made his first run to a restaurant strictly because I wanted something. I am at this weird stage where absolutely nothing sounds good to eat (basically, the opposite of cravings). So by process of elimination, the other night I decided only one thing sounded good and that sweet, lovable man went to get it for me.

A Tidbit… I have loved all the fitness recommendations I’ve been getting from everyone. I invested in a few workout dvds so I can get my booty moving at home. Managing stress and keeping my body active are both incredibly important and I’m grateful for the help. Now if only it would heat up a little so I can use my pool!
