So, clearly I missed the boat on 16 weeks, but between the trip to Turkey and traveling for Carnaval, it just didn’t happen. Sorry!
How far along: 17 weeks today
Baby updates: Baby Harper is around 5 inches long – about the size of a turnip! I haven’t felt any kicks or movement yet but I am hoping that comes soon! Also, we’ll be finding out Baby Harper’s gender next weekend so stay tuned!!
Mamma updates: Definitely feeling better and my appetite has returned, although I am still tired a lot and love when I can get a good nap in.
Things I miss: Still missing sushi. Like, I think about it every. single. day. Giving up alcohol hasn’t been too hard (especially since I was feeling sick for the first few months), but lately I have really been wanting a nice, cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
Cravings: Nothing too unusual so far, although I have started drinking Coke every now and then which is something I never used to do.
Weight: +4.5 was the highest number of the week, so I’m going with that! The weight gain has happened pretty quickly, but I have felt like I had some catch-up to do so I’m very happy with it. I still haven’t broken into my maternity clothes, however I feel like it’s not too far away.
Best moments of the week: The past week was wonderful. I had a great trip to Turkey, but it felt so great to get home and escape with Michael for the most relaxing Carnaval of all time. 🙂 This week we also celebrated Valentine’s Day and our 1 year anniversary of moving to Brazil, along with a good friend’s birthday! So lots of joy and celebrations to be thankful for.
