17 weeks pregnant


Merry Christmas everybody! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas. Mine has been perfect – lots of family, food and fun! My 2 year old son has been completely and utterly overwhelmed with toys and sweets. I am struggling to find a place for all of his toys, because over the month (his birthday was also on the 10th of this month), he has received a lot of ‘big’ toys such as 2 tricycles, a play tool station, a drawing table, an easel, a drum kit and a play tent! My front room is starting to look like a Santa’s toy factory so I think it is time to pack away his old toys ready for baby number 2 to inherit one day!

I think I have had a growth spurt this week! My bump feels huge all of a sudden! My husband took me out shopping yesterday for a few maternity clothes as my normal tshirts are starting to show off the bottom of my belly now (not the most attractive look!). I can also say that I can definitely feel the baby moving now! Especially after eating something sweet (which I have been doing a lot of this month). My husband also swears that he could feel the movements with his hand on my belly last night – very exciting for him!

I took my son swimming today at the local leisure center. Although my son had a whale of a time, I can’t say that it was much fun for me. Putting the fact that I saw a tiny child-sized turd float past my face at one point, the place was rammed with children who have a tendency to occasionally panic or get excited and kick out really hard. I felt like I was constantly protecting my belly – plus it was freezing! I decided to leave my husband and son to it half way through and go and have a nice warm shower.

Right, well I think it is time for some more Christmas cake – I don’t think I have eaten in, well, about thirty minutes now! Now where are those Quality Street…

  1. Thank you for the laugh. I needed it. Although I don’t think I would of remained calm if a child-sized turd floated past my face. I’m slowly but surely needing new shirts. I was 11 weeks yesterday with #2. My daughter will be 2 in June. I enjoy reading more from you.

    • Thank you so much for the comment – I love receiving comments from people who enjoy reading my blog, it makes it all worth while. I really enjoy writing it and I am glad you enjoy reading it.
      Have you found that you are bigger now then you were when you were 11 weeks with your daughter? I have been looking back at past photos of me when I was around 17 weeks with my son and I was a lot smaller than I am now! I guess my stomach muscles aren’t as good this time round! 🙂
