17 weeks pregnant with Baby Pritchard

How far along?
17 weeks and 6 days. I completely missed last week. It was a combination of moving house and no internet. 

Total weight gain?
I weighed myself the other day and was 10st 1.5lb, blimey I'm getting porky!

Maternity clothes?
I bought a pair of maternity trousers from H&M a few weeks ago. They're so comfortable and luckily I have quite a few tops that still fit me to tide me over for now. I was having a good browse on ASOS earlier but I really don't want to go mad on maternity clothes, I'd rather spend it on the baby.

Stretch marks?
My boobs have grown so much in the last week, and I can't quite tell if the bottom half of my boobs are really veiny or whether they're stretch marks. I'm still using the same Palmers products as before though and I'm gonna get Bio Oil and start using that at night.

I'm still sleeping like a baby, I'm counting my blessings really because I know it won't last forever.

Best moment this week?
Moving in to our new house. We've still got stuff here there and everywhere but I'm enjoying slowly finding homes for everything, and spending many hours chilling on the sofa with my love with the puppy and kitty pottering around. 

Miss anything?
Nothing. Maybe the sun, can we have a proper 2 month long summer this year please?

Still nothing.

Food cravings?
Nope. I've been pretty boring on the food craving front really.

Anything make you queasy or sick?
No sickness, I heave at the smell of cat wee and poo and I honestly can't wait until Boo can go outside so I can get rid of his litter tray again. 

Kyle saw four magpies the other day, which I really wish we'd managed to get a photo of, but we're still really not bothered. As long as I go full term and baby is healthy I'll be happy. 

Labour signs?

There was one day at work last week when I don't think I've ever ached so much in my life. Sometimes I'm grateful that my job is quite active, I don't worry too much about exercise but this day bending down and being on kick stools was an absolute killer.

Belly button in or out?
In. But my little bump seems to have appeared out of nowhere this last week. 

It sounds silly but I am slightly anxious that I've not felt anything yet. I know because it's my first it really is nothing to worry about but it's on the back of my mind quite often.

Looking forward to?
Our second scan in just over a week. I can't believe that'll be the last time we see the little one until October. It's crazy to think we're nearly halfway there already.
