17 weeks pregnant with Riley

17 weeks with Madison(def bigger with Riley!)
Date: July 31

How far along: 17 weeks

Growing baby-Your baby's skeleton is changing from soft cartilage to bone, and the umbilical cord — her lifeline to the placenta — is growing stronger and thicker. Your baby weighs 5 ounces now (about as much as a turnip), and she's around 5 inches long from head to bottom. She can move her joints, and her sweat glands are starting to develop.

Symptoms- No major symptoms this week. I feel her kicking a lot more. I also have major spurts of energy or days where I am drained all day. 

Weight- 109.6 lbs

Belly measures- 31.5"

Craving- Subway BLT with everything. Any food is great right now. I've craved chicken stew, Chinese and fries this week. Depends on the day and what restaurant I drive by :)

Bought- nothing this week

Done- registered at Target and Babies R Us. Had appointment yesterday..her heart rate was 155. Talked more in depth with Dr about having tubal done after Riley is born.

Looking forward to- our anatomy scan in 4 weeks. Announcing Riley's middle name :)

Finally feeling like I look pregnant and not just like I have a belly. I've been wearing maternity shirts lately and my regular pants are getting too tight. Time for some maternity shorts/pants! I've overall been feeling really good! I have been nesting a bit so trying to get Riley's room put together, washing all of her clothes(except the new with tags stuff) and putting Madison's old, out of season clothes up for sale, trying to make more room. Also trying to decide the direction I want to go for Riley's room. I need to find some artwork for the walls and go from there.


  1. Yay!
    I have maternity clothes if you want to come over and go through them.

    1. I may take you up on that! Thank you :)
