17 Weeks - Wahoowa!
How far along? 17 weeks
What's on the canvas? A knitted bib in UVA colors. Over the last couple of weeks, UVA has gone through a lot - our President was dismissed, protests ensued, and then the President was reinstated. I've only read a handful of articles and emails about what happened so I honestly don't want to get into the politics that took place in Charlottesville. Bottom line, I am a 'Hoo and I love my school. This week was simply to show my support.
Weight gain: Started at 125 and up 5 lbs.
Best moments this week: Heard the baby's heartbeat at my appointment on Wednesday - in fact, the doctor even pointed out noises that indicated the baby's movement. Thursday evening I hit the beach with my parents and Mackenzie. Alan will be joining us on Tuesday for the rest of the July 4th holiday - love being down here!
Movement: I have felt what I think is movement a couple times while laying flat on my back. I seem to have more luck feeling little pokes first thing in the morning.
Pregnancy symptoms: Getting bigger + sensitive gums. After spending the first trimester chewing solely on the right side of my mouth, I can now successfully eat on both sides. However, brushing my teeth is often like a crime scene.
Maternity clothing: The shorts I'm wearing in these pictures are maternity but tops and dresses are my normal clothes.
PS - Can you see the puppy in the glass door? That would be our first baby Mackenzie.
