Pregnancy Things at 17 Weeks 5 Days

February 15, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog,

– I need to wee – very often during the day but nighttime is the worst. Will and I have swapped sides of the bed so I’m by the bedroom door and can get out to the bathroom quicker. This is making me feel weird right now, almost like we’re living in a hotel, or like we’ve re-decorated our bedroom or something…

– I need to wee so much because I’m so bloody thirsty all the time. I’ve noticed that when I’m thirsty I get very headachey and tired; there’s definitely a correlation between this and dehydration.

– I have definitely started feeling the baby, I can now tell the difference between my stomach gurgling and baby movements! Daddy got to feel a kick today, too. I’m really looking forward to the movements becoming more obvious – baby seems to be asleep a lot of the time at the moment (like her mummy) and I’m eager for her to be more wriggly!

– My sleeping pattern has never been so sensible and settled as it is at the moment. I go to bed around 10.30 and am asleep just before midnight, and then up again around 8. I still find mornings difficult, but then I did before the pregnancy so I don’t think this is a baby thing. I just don’t like getting up…

– My appetite is back! Aside from the roast potatoes and mayo craving, I’m also eating a packet of salt and vinegar squares every day and I’ve gone from hating the sight of crumpets to not being able to get enough of them.

– I’m happy! So happy, compared with my mood two to three weeks ago. I know this has a lot to do with getting so much more satisfying sleep but I feel like a cloud has been lifted. I’m no longer worrying and am able to happily get on at work a lot more. I feel so contented, and it’s a wonderful feeling.

    You are making me nostalgic for those early pregnancy months! I moved sides during our first pregnancy and never went back. Sleep tight x

      @Heather – Thank-You! I’m trying to enjoy this time as much as possible, I felt so awful at the beginning of the pregnancy and I wouldn’t be surprised if the dreaded exhaustion comes back towards the end. Also enjoying the bump now it looks like baby rather than too many cakes!

      PS: sorry, your comment got spammed initially for some reason. I have told my blog you are definitely not spam, fingers crossed it won’t happen again.

    @Kat – my mum told me last night that now I’m by the door I will never go back! She said she still automatically has the side by the door as she was so used to leaping up in the night to see to my brother and I if we needed her.

    @Carly – I’ve been quite lucky and though I had tons of nausea it all left at week 13. I now have a monster appetite instead! Long may the nausea stay away.

    Pleased to have found your blog as it’s fab. I remember the constant weeing only too well. We did a big trip to New Zealand when I was 14 weeks pregnant (planned before I got knocked up!!). We were travelling around in a campervan which unfortunately didn’t have a toilet so I would always insist Young Daddy parked it right next to the toilet block, and I usually made him get up in the night with me as I was too scared to go to the loo on my own in the middle of the night!

    Enjoy now, it’s the best time since you’re full of energy, no more of the annoying nausea or discomfort of the first 3 months. I suggest you take a trip somewhere with Will :-) I’m in week 36 now and things start to feel a bit heavy around here ;-)

    The baby will start holding his or her head more upright and there are pads forming on the fingers and toes of the baby’s hands and feet. The baby’s eyes are now fully developed but they remain closed.
