{week 17} This week has been so great! Finally the second trimester! I mean, I know I was already in the second trimester, but it certainly didn’t feel like it.

I no longer have to power nap in the afternoon to make it thru the day which is glorious because it means I can actually get things done during Eloise’s naptime. This isn’t to say I have bounds of energy, but I am feeling pretty good.

Also, my headaches have been less severe after two acupuncture appointments. It wasn’t looking good since Eloise brought home a cold last week, but I powered thru it much more quickly than I expected. Though I know it won’t be the last cold she brings home…

Clothes, okay pants, are getting trickier these days, but I can still make a few pairs (four) work. As you can see from the picture above, my jeans stretch out in the knees so ideally I should dry them between wearings, but they are stretchy enough that I can wear them almost all day without being too uncomfortable. In my non-stretchy jeans (think of them like girlfriend jeans, a slim-cut but not super skinny) I am better off with a rubber band around the button. I pulled out an old pair of maternity leggings to try on & I am not even close to fitting into them yet, so here’s to hoping for a belly soon!

I have been feeling Baby Foot move around quite a bit which is pretty amazing. I didn’t feel Eloise move until my nineteenth week, so it’s been fun to feel this baby a few weeks earlier. It makes me want to get thru the next two-&-a-half weeks quickly so we can see Baby Foot at our 20 week ultrasound!

And lastly, all of the initial bloodwork that we had done for early neural tube defect & down syndrome screening came back negative so we are feeling really happy about that.

Happy 17 weeks!
