I've been so busy with Dev Bootcamp that I've gotten about 6 hours of sleep a night. I did sleep on the train a few times but not even the entire time.
The week 17 picture was taken before dinner. I was actually surprised I looked bigger than previous weeks since they were mostly taken after I ate.
Size of baby: Onion, 4.5 - 5 inches long
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 0.6 lb loss overall. I also lost .1 in the past week. That is just using the Saturday weight. On Friday and Sunday I was higher.
Plus same reasoning as last week: Since I bought maternity clothes I started to wear the shirts even though I didn't need them yet. Maybe I can get my cost per wear down so I started wearing them earlier.
Gender: We will find out on August 3.
Movement: Not yet.
Sleep: My lack of sleep is not baby related. I'm so exhausted this past week. I slept about 6 hours a night with adjusting to Dev Bootcamp and 4 hours traveling a day!
What I miss: Lunch meat. Mainly because lunch was provided to us on Monday and it was hoagies and almost all had lunch meat.
Cravings: Nothing yet. When do these usually start?
Aversions: Nothing really
Symptoms: I've been too busy to have many symptoms. I do think my allergies are worse. Also i still get lightheaded at times and I'm really weak. It's tough work getting my container of food down from the top of a refrigerator. There are 4 containers on top of the fridge. The heaviest one is usually on top so I can't grab 2 containers at once. I struggle to reach to the top. I can't reach as high. But then I struggle because that bin with multiple jars of peanut butter is just too heavy. Next time I'm going to request help. I just hope someone is in the kitchen and someone tall.
Best moment this week: Baby Related: Hearing the heartbeat (156). Anything else related: starting Dev Bootcamp. (Dave said he can't remember a time he saw me so happy. Too bad I'm just so tired too.)
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender.
Exercise: Well in the past week I've a drastic increase in exercise. I've had to bike to and from the train station. I walk 2 blocks in the morning. Well a maybe 3 because it's a half block then 1 block down a steep hill then 1 block sort of level then 1/3 block up a super steep hill. Then up a flight of stairs. At the end of the day do it all with the addition of crossing an extra street. I maybe walk a block from the train station to the bus too. Also we have mandatory yoga. Let me say I do not like moving from down dog to anything. That's worse than loading the dishwasher for my lightheadedness.
