17 week pregnancy update

I did wonder whether to do a pregnancy update for week 17 as I’m now already 17 weeks 4 days but I wanted to get started asap so next weeks update may be a little earlier so I can get into a routine of updating you all on whats happening with my pregnancy. I also plan to do a few videos and bump updates as and when I can, bump is growing rapidly which is rather scary and so odd to see because I’ve been without a bump for so long. It’s hard to remember how quick I grew with Vinny but I have been told you grow a lot faster with baby number 2 so I shall just blame it on that! 
How far along? 17 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yes I have been in maternity clothes for a few weeks now as I have shown so much quicker this time round! I have a video going up this week sometime about my first trimester and also have a mini maternity haul on there so I will show you a few of the items I have been loving so far. (Make sure you are subscribed to my channel so you don’t miss the video)

Sleep: I actually have slept pretty well apart from Tuesday, my gosh I just went to bed feeling a little off and I was right to think so. I ended up tossing and turning all night and ended up having a sickness and tummy bug from around 3am that night for about 24 hours. It was definitely the worst I’ve felt for the whole pregnancy so far it was so horrible, I hate being sick so it was a really awful experience. So glad it didn’t last too long and I’m back to my normal self now. 
Miss anything? I miss salami, I have really fancied a salami baguette this week and because I know I can’t have it I’ve wanted it even more! I also miss being a little more active, I’ve been quite lazy so far so I plan to get some fitness in soon, possibly get a cross trainer for hire from Hire Fitness to help me out just so I can do some gentle exercise. You can also get it in Ireland from http://www.hire-fitness.ie/ and it looks really fab for this sort of thing so I’m going to look into it further and see what I can get.

Movement: I keep thinking I can feel movement, it’s like little bubbles in my tummy but I’m not sure if I’m mistaking that for gas or not sorry TMI! 
Food cravings: Anything that includes carbs. 
Gender: Boy! 
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Apart from the sickness bug which I guess was just a bug nothing really to report for this week, it’s been pretty smooth sailing apart from car sickness I get so nauseous when travelling! 
Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy most of the time although I do have my moments, I’m definitely happier this pregnancy I feel. 
Best moment this week: Telling everyone about our baby news, finally!
Looking forward to: I’m looking forward to having some work maternity clothes to wear, it’s been a real struggle hiding this pregnancy for so long so I’ve been in my normal work clothes up until now and its just going to be such a relief to wear something comfortable whilst at work and finally tell people about or fab news. 
I know there are a lot of pregnant ladies following my journey as there seems to be a blogger baby boom at the moment so I’d love to know how you are feeling and if you’ve had a good week?
