Bumpdate Weeks 17-19


Happy Wednesday dolls!

I’m just a tad bit late in sharing my bump-dates from weeks 17-19 but figured it was still worth a share, right? πŸ˜‰ Everyone keeps telling me my pregnancy is flying by which is so funny because even though I’m over half way at this point (while writing this) October still feels so far away! I wish it felt like it was flying by to me too! It’s nice to know at least that I have less weeks ahead of me then what I’ve already done!! Woot! One day at a time, one week at a time, grow baby grow! πŸ™‚

Week 17:Β IMG_4994

  • Baby is the size of a pomegrante
  • We’re both getting bigger everyday it feels like
  • I’m having crazyyy dreams
  • Baby loves grapes and I want them everyday

Week 18:IMG_5000

  • Officially started month 5 of pregnancy
  • Baby is the size of a sweet potato
  • Baby will here in +/- 5 months
  • I can’t sleep
  • Craving sweets, mostly fruit but also ice cream

Week 19:IMG_5025

  • Baby is the size of a mango
  • My back is hurting everyday
  • Sitting and sleeping in general is so uncomfortable
  • I’m feeling large

Symptoms/cravings these last few weeks:

  • Skin sensitivity and redness-continued
  • Very vivid dreams-continued
  • Constant trips to the bathroom-continued (at least 2 times at night, sometimes up to 4, I don’t see myself sleeping through the night for the next year, ha)
  • Heat sensitivity-continued, esp now that it’s warmer out and I’m sweating way more too-ick
  • Pregnancy brain-continued-the struggle is real let me tell you
  • Weight gain and general body enlargement- face/back/hips/waist/legs/belly- I bought a few maternity pieces which you can find my reviews on, here
  • The belly growth is pretty uncomfortable and that means lots of ligament pain in my sides and pelvis as my body makes room for the baby
  • Starving all the time- continued- it’s harder to fill my stomach up since the baby is taking up so much room these days so I feel like I just have to eat constantly
  • Lots of back pain during the day and at night-thank God for this pregnancy pillow, I highly recommend it and this pillow for the car and the couch
  • My sweet tooth is out of control these days, I need multiple kinds of fruit everyday and would LOVE to have dessert after dinner every night but try to have cut up fruit ready in the fridge for when those cravings strike
  • If I change positions to fast then I get a little dizzy/light headed so I need to be careful moving too fast, ha makes me feel so old

Ok I think that’s everything that’s been going on with this baby making body of mine! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for checking in and reading the update and for all the support so far! This is the best and craziest journey of my entire life and I couldn’t do it alone, that’s for sure!

“Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me….”

Matthew 25:40
