I'm actually 17 weeks this week, but keeping up by the week is not happening, so catch up it is! I've been feeling a little better the last two weeks. Maybe throwing up a few times a week, as oppose to multiple times a day. I still feel pretty tired and am waiting for that second trimester energy to come! In the mornings I often feel like I'm going to be good for the day, then come Addilyn's nap time and I feel exhausted. I definitely can't sleep on my stomach any more, so getting comfortable at night is a challenge. I wake up at least a few times to go to the bathroom and often feel nauseous when I wake up so it takes a little while to fall back to sleep.
My belly is definitely growing and I shouldn't be surprised, as everyone says it, but it's crazy how much faster I'm showing than with Addilyn. It's funny because depending on what I'm wearing I feel like while I look pregnant no matter what, the size of my belly seems to differ a lot. It's definitely bigger by the end of the day too.
I already feel like my belly is so high. Up until the day she was born my belly was high and I felt like it was overtaking my ribs and chest. I never "dropped" and I feel like I'm going to be in the same boat this time. It scares me a little that I already feel like I don't have a ton of space between my boobs and belly!
I haven't felt any kicks yet, and I'm feeling anxious to. I felt Addilyn move around at 16 weeks, and while not consistently even Chris could feel it that early. So while I know it's normal to not feel your baby this early, I thought I would by now and am anxious for it to happen!
I've been making plans for the baby's room, but they are mostly all still in my head. We have a lot of moving around and organizing to do to make room for stuff from upstairs and into the basement before we can even think about making it a nursery. I have a good idea of what I want it to look like, boy or girl, but finding out what we're having will make it way more exciting. My 20 week ultrasound is October 15th and I can't wait.
I'm sure I could say this every time, but I still have many days where I just can't believe that I am pregnant. I feel so so thankful for this baby, and don't ever want to forget what a miracle it is!
