17 week belly pictures

Well, the sun decided to come out and play this weekend. It was nearly 90 degrees yesterday! But now today it dropped back down into the 50s, so I'm forced to stay in the house and clean. I think I will make a zucchini cake today, and maybe some other goodies to keep my mood up. I just want sunlight!!
I have been feeling so good lately. My belly is starting to pop a bit, my skin is clear, I'm feeling wonderful, and I can feel baby moving so happily in there! I can really tell that the relaxin is kicking in though.. sometimes I feel like my pelvis is just going to fall apart! Haha. I can't wait to go swimming this summer and enjoy the sun some more. I think it will help with the minor aches and pains I get from sitting at the computer for my new job.

My next appointment is June 12th. I think we might be able to hear baby's heartbeat with the fetoscope at that appointment, and I am excited for it! I need to invest in one someday when we have a bit of extra money around here. I also need to start saving up for my birth pool and a few minor birthing supplies. I also want to get a hammock. I think it will really be nice to put my upper body on while in labor so I can completely relax and listen to my hypnobabies while still being upright. As much as I loved the water for Teagan's birth, I'm sure I'll be wanting water mostly, but just in case it would be nice to have another comfy option.

Anyway, here are my 17 week belly pictures. I am about a week behind getting these up as I'm going to be 18 weeks tomorrow! I will take more tomorrow though. I also posted a couple of my final belly pictures from when I was pregnant with Teagan. I wish I would have taken them throughout my entire pregnancy with her! I had a lot going on at the time though, so I try not to beat myself up about too much.

Anyway, here they are! Enjoy!
