Pregnancy Update: 17 Weeks

Feeling: It’s been a rough week. I had terrible nausea for several days, an aversion to most foods, and a sense of smell in hyper drive! Public service announcement: if you loved canned fish and your pregnant co-worker asks you not to open it at your desk because they aren’t doing well, please don’t proceed to open it and eat it at your desk! I went home sick one day due a related circumstance, and that wasn’t fun. I’m hoping the retrogression to the worst days of the first trimester is over and I won’t have to do them again! The past two days have been much better- so fingers crossed!
But oh my weird dreams this week! Let’s just say I’m 100% confident one of my favorite married couples could be amazing crossfit/parkour combo instructors in matching cheetah ensembles in the streets of NY after doing their fitness video in one of my dreams… I also dreamt little guy was actually a girl the night after making a dent in my wallet at Baby Gap. Oh so many other strange ones, but at least I am laughing most mornings when I realize how weird my dreams were that night.
Fitness: I’m switching from straight runs to intervals. I’ll run a quarter mile, walk a quarter, run another, etc. for a few miles. It’s still kicking my butt- this extra blood flow thing is real!
Craving: Frosted Mini-Wheats have kept me alive this week! We bought double the amount of milk we typically buy and I’ve been pouring it on cereal and making a lot of chocolate milk at night after dinner. I must need calcium and vitamin D in large amounts!
He’s developing his five senses and can hear us this week! It’s pretty exciting to think he’ll know our voices when he’s born. He’s also getting a lot bigger, and I can feel the stretching happening and a little more movement happening too.
I can hardly wait to get to see him again in the next week and pretend to act surprised when my OB tells me it’s a boy, that is, unless my dream was some sort of vision…

Sucks your coworker didn't do as you asked. 🙁
I couldn't stand the smell of cooking meat when I was pregnant, I could eat it just fine as long as I didn't have to smell it while it was cooking. Oh the things pregnancy does to us, lol. Love your updates and can't wait to see the little guy. 😀
So frustrating about your coworker!! The guys at my office have been so good to warn me when I'm in the break room and they're eating something that might be too much for me haha
I know, that punk! At least I'm in a better place now and handling smells better this week!
You lucky girl! If anything it reminds me to always be a little more self aware and think about other people when I'm making food of any kind!
I love that you are still running! Go get 'em
