Movement: lots lots lots
Gender: I still think it’s a boy. My bubby has a brother. My bubby’s brother has two boys. My sister has two boys. My friends all have two kids of the same sex (only one has one of each), so… this is why I think we’re having another boy.
Two colleagues think it’s a girl, mainly because of my “flat” belly (how is this even possible?) and because my blood results during pregnancy were good.
My dad swung – a girl.
My bubby thinks it’s going to be a girl.
My sister dreamt it’s a girl.
My other sister thinks it’s a boy.
My mom thinks it’s a boy.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy
Sports: None atm due to the Christmas vacation and not being home

17 weeks pregnant

Now, let’s see if I’ll keep at it. With a toddler in the house I have other priorities than posting on my blog but often I think I really have to post the weekly baby bump because I wonder, how was it with Baby#1 compared to this pregnancy? So, here we go…

How far along: 17 weeks
How much do I weigh: 51,5 kg (with Baby#1 I weighed 1kg less)
Baby size: Size of the palm of my hand
Belly button in or out: After I eat the top of my belly-button sticks out a bit πŸ™‚
Sleep: It’s ok
Food (non) cravings: I’m in the mood for coffee again which I didn’t drink the first three months. Other than that no special cravings.
Symptoms: My belly hurts each morning but I’m not sure if it’s in my uterus or just my intestine or full bladder.
Maternity clothes: Pants and tops, daily
Stretch marks: None
Miss anything: A sip of beer, being able to take pain medicine
Looking forward to: Next sonography which is the big one
Best happenings this week: Visiting Oma and Opa and spending a few days there
Movement: Nope, as I have a front wall placenta let’s see when I will feel the baby
Gender: It’s going to be a surprise, I assume baby will be a boy
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and bitchy (according to the bubby)
Sports: Due to lack of time I haven’t been going regularly. I have to start going twice or three times a week again!
