Looking classy while pregnant can sometimes be a struggle. All I want to do is lay around in my sweatpants. But alas, I am an adult with responsibilities who must sometimes venture out into the real world. Which can require real clothes.
And don’t get me wrong, I love a cute outfit as much as the next girl. But the struggle to put yourself together can definitely be real during pregnancy!

It can be hard to feel good while you’re pregnant. I know pregnancy can sometimes make me feel my absolute best and more feminine. But other times, it really makes me feel my worst. I’m bloated, uncomfortable, and unpleasant (just ask my husband).
A little pampering and relaxation can go a long way with making me feel better.

This is my second pregnancy, so, let’s be real, I’m probably not going to be consistent at getting updates up. However, pregnancy is beautiful and I want to remember everything about each baby I carry so I’m going to try my best to blog about it every few weeks and when I have updates on my health.
How Far Along? 17 Weeks
How big is baby? Baby is as big as a pomegranate!
Symptoms? Still some lingering nausea, headaches, migraines, heartburn, stomach aches, digestive issues, backaches, stuffy nose
Craving? Corn dogs, strawberries
Gender? 2 1/2 weeks to go!
It’s still that time of year. The time for sickness. Yuck. Especially the stomach bug! Just this past weekend we were out of town and my sister came down with it. But, even when it’s not that time of year, there are still a lot of things you can do that will keep you healthy.
I’ve always had tummy issues. It’s caused me a lot of pain and sick days over the years. I’ve learned a good way to keep my gut healthy is by taking probiotics.
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
If you haven’t already heard the news…I’m pregnant!
I’m about 11 weeks along. We waited to announce due to the fact that we lost our last one, so we wanted to wait until at least the first ultrasound to make sure the pregnancy was viable and going well. We didn’t wait the full 12 weeks most people usually wait to announce, because I’m already showing and couldn’t hide it anymore! I got a little bump probably around 8 or 9 weeks that rounded out by week 10. They sure aren’t kidding when they say you show earlier with your second! I wasn’t expecting this at all! I know it’s a minuscule bump compared to what it will look like 20 weeks from now, but I feel huge. I waited to tell my coworkers until we knew everything was okay and I had to hide it at work, that was stressful.
That’s how long we knew you.
One day, my world was changed forever, and a mere two days later, it was taken from me.
We never met, but I miss you.
I imagined what my pregnancy would be like. If it would be easier or harder than my first, we contemplated names, we guessed gender (boy), and we celebrated the tiny life inside of me.
Your Dad was so happy.
