Bump Update: 17 Weeks

 This week has been amazing. I seriously feel like a totally different person now that I have my energy back! And on top of that I had an amazing weekend with my gals down in MIAMI for the 2016 Pure Synergy Diamond Retreat! Such great memories and friendship were made there. You can read more about it HERE!

Also this week, yesterday, I got my first STITCH FIX EVER! And it was with PREGNANCY CLOTHING! YAY! Oh and I fit in all of them! For a long time I put off doing Stitch Fix because I didn't think I would fit in anything, but I did and DO! YAY for hard work to change my lifestyle and make healthy choices so that I can naturally lose weight!

Matt has said he wanted me to show off my belly and wants to get me cute pregnancy clothing. So why not have a stylists pick something for me. I really love all the pieces. She did a great job, but I think for practicality we are only going to keep 1 or two of the pieces. I will have a post up about it before I send anything back! But the stylist totally listened to my requests and only sent me shirts, a cardigan and a maxi skirt (THAT I LOVE!)

Total Weight Gain: 4-5 pounds. 242-243. Yesterday I was at 242 and today I was at 243. I am still trying to regulate after my amazing weekend! 

Symptoms: None. Full of energy! 
Baby’s Size: Onion/Pomegranate/Turnip
Maternity Clothes: Yes, bottoms need to wear maternity or stretchy pants. Tops still good to go on regular shirts! 
Stretch Marks: I already have a ton that I got when I gained weight years ago. So nothing new.
Gender: ??? It was too hard to tell. Hoping at my next ultrasound in 2 weeks we will be able to see! 
Sleep: I am only waking up once a night to go to the bathroom. But started having some crazy weird dreams!  
Miss Anything: Sleeping comfortably flat on my belly or back! Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: MEAT. On my weekend away we ate mostly vegan, as more than half of us were vegan. I had 1 meal with meat in it. So since being home I have been like, "MEAT! GIVE ME MEAT!" 
Aversions: nothing yet
Excited About: Feeling the baby move a ton! Getting to hear the baby's heartbeat tomorrow at my monthly check up. And getting my first Stitch Fix pregnancy clothing! 
Workouts: Getting in my workouts 5 days a week, which is awesome! My right shoulder has been hurting me, no idea why but getting lots of massages from Matt for that. I have been doing 21 Day Fix yoga, Cize, Diary Of A Fit Mommy's Fit For Two 2nd Trimester and the Beachbody On Demand Active Maternity 2nd Trimester workouts.
