17 weeks and a few belly pics!

How Far Along? 17 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Nope. But I bought a new bikini (with a bigger bra size!) to wear to the beach on Sunday. I thought I would be self conscious but now that my "bump" is more "bumpish" and harder so it doesn't look flabby I felt great in my bikini!

Stretch Marks? No.

Sleep? Usually yes. Last night woke up at 4am starving! I tried to ignore it and fall back asleep but I wasn't very successful. Finally fell asleep for a few more hours.

Best Moment of the Week? My tummy "popped". I officially look pregnant. And I love it.

Movement? Can't wait for this to start!

Food Cravings? Nope. Just hating chicken and steak.

Gender? We find out in 20 days! I think girl. We'll see!

What I miss? Nothing. I love this phase of pregnancy!

What I'm looking forward to? Anatomy scan in 3 weeks!

Weekly Wisdom: Don't go to bed hungry!

Milestones: Sporting the bump in the bikini!

Emotions: I'm still all over the place. Way more emotional than usual!

And now here are a few progress pics. But as a disclaimer I don't think they actually do the "bump" justice! I need to pull my pants down a bit lower and do some front shots I think!

7 weeks

12 weeks (a bit more bloat) and sorry...I don't have a clue how to rotate this picture.

13 weeks

15 weeks

17 weeks

Have a great day!
:) LTB


  1. Aw look at how cute you are - I had a small spare tire around my middle so I'm afraid to show my before pictures. haha. Plus with all this bloat I think I already look like your 17 week picture.

  2. You look great!! So tiny. :) Can't wait to find out what you are having. I'm thinking a girl for you too!

  3. You look so adorable! I can't believe how tiny you are. Not too long now until the gender scan. I seriously can't wait!

  4. Yay for 17 weeks!! You look wonderful, I look like I ate 3 of you lol I'll be posting some pics later so you can see for yourself that I'm not lying. Enjoy that beach =)

  5. I've been so curious to see your belly pics, love them, you look awesome!! I just posted mine too, although I look about the same as you do and I'm 3 weeks behind, hah! I can't wait for you to find out, I think there is a serious girl bandwagon going on right now, including myself! It will be so fun to see if we're all right!

  6. You look..well..plain fabulous!!! I can't wait to see you at 30weeks, lol, you'll be so cute!

  7. You look FABULOUS!! I'm so jealous!! I look HUGE right now and I'm 6 weeks behind you.
    And I hear you on the waking up starving thing...that happens to me alll the time!
