17 Week Update

How many weeks?  I'm 17 weeks.  I can't believe I'm this far along already!  The weeks seem to go by fast!  This pregnancy has definitely been different this time around.  I'm not as stressed or as worried.  I'm definitely still worried some because of my history, but I do have the cerclage in and so far everything has been going so well with this pregnancy.  I'm always going to worry because I want to go full term and want to have a healthy baby.  So far so good!  I think I have felt the baby move.  I sometimes feel light flutters.  Its very light and quick though.  I'm sure it is the baby moving.  Its so exciting to start feeling the baby!

How am I feeling?  Feeling better everyday.  I don't have the nausea as much anymore.  It mostly hits me when I haven't eaten something in a while or my blood sugar gets low.  I have type 1 diabetes so I've been monitoring my blood sugars very closely.  I've been able to keep my blood sugars under good control with this pregnancy and I'm so thankful for that.

Weight gain?  I've gained 8-9 pounds total.

Doctors appointment?  Not this week.  My doctor did say last week that all was well and that he couldn't find anything wrong.  That's good news!!

Maternity Clothes?  I'm wearing maternity bottoms.  I haven't needed to wear maternity tops just yet.  They are still a little big.  The picture of me above is my first maternity dress.  I love it!  It's lightweight and so comfortable.  I did go shopping this past weekend with my mom while she was visiting and I got some cute new maternity clothes.
