17 weeks bump update




So 17 weeks! I had thought it was going pretty slow but all of a sudden, it’s seems to be going fast. Only 3 more weeks until we find out the sex, I can’t wait!

Last week I told you that I had Gestational Diabetes. I wrote a different post that you can find here about what’s been going on with it.

Iv’e been feeling a bit dizzy this week. I think it’s a mixture of my blood pressure, the usual pregnancy dizziness and the gestational diabetes. Fun times!

One good thing this week though is I have been feeling more little kicks. I was getting worried because I’m 17 weeks now and haven’t felt anything up to now (apart from 1 kick last week) but with Harry, I felt him from 12 weeks. It just shows you that not all pregnancies are the same.

I’m still feeling tired but I’m pretty sure that’s not going to disappear. My appetite has really increased and I feel hungry all the time. I think it doesn’t help that when I’ve had breakfast, lunch or dinner I can’t eat for an hour because I need to prick my finger and then I have to be careful what I snack on in between.

Having said all that, I do feel OK. Not sick, heartburn has eased off and even though I am tired I have noticed my energy levels are starting to come back.

Harry is being super cute and getting really excited about Peanut (the baby’s name it has been given) and asks to look at pictures on the internet 🙂

I think that’s all for this week. Are you pregnant? Feeling similar?
