How far along: 17 Weeks.
Baby is the size of a: Turnip. Turnip for what ::cue Lil’ John song::.
No seriously, I barely know what a turnip is. This one is a little lost on me. This other app I use says white onion. So white onion.
Due date: Sept 3rd, 2016
Total weight gain: I will weigh in this week. I have not stepped on the scale in a long time, but my clothes fit okay. Except my bras. This week I’m putting in an order for a few new sports bras and going to Soma for a new real bra. I can’t squeeze into these old ones anymore.
Sleep: Sleep is good. I am always waking up to go to the bathroom early on. Even when I nap. Which this week, was a crap-ton. Seriously, I slept all day on Good Friday, and part of the afternoon on Saturday.
Best moment this week: I went to Step after my class on Tuesday evening, ran on Thursday, and then ran again and cycled on Saturday. My energy comes in waves. I am learning to completely take advantage of these pockets of energy. Which is why I’m writing on a Saturday night and not passed out.
Food cravings: Nope. Since I had a good long weekend of eats last weekend, I really chilled on it this week.
Food aversions: Not really. Smells are kind of ick to me . I ate a bowl of veggies with my dinner, and left the bowl on the desk I’m working on. The smell is irritating me. And it’s just like snap peas.
Symptoms: Still really profound pockets of fatigue. But they are mixed in with some energy.
Looking forward to: The usual. I feel like I’m really caught up at work, so time to catch up more on reviews for my team and stuff. Makes me feel like a real Beyonce when I can be pregnant AND work AND work out at the same time. Doesn’t always happen. But feels cool when it does.
And in case you missed it…

I really love how you are sharing what is happening through the weeks! Very soon you will feel that little turnip kicking you! I was super sensitive to smells too…strong perfumes and diesel fuel exhaust were two that I could not tolerate.
Also tuna. I don’t eat it, but my husband at a RIDICULOUS amount last night, and it totally smells up the entire house.
That’s interesting about the smells! Glad its still going well for you you though 🙂
