Pregnancy: Week 17

17 weeks!

17 weeks!

What a nutty week! Chad was out of town at the start of it and my schedule was packed morning to night. I had a small window to make it to the box … and never did. While I missed having to grip the bar, I made up for it with a few runs and plenty of walks with the pooch. I’ve ended this insane week with a weekend of pampering – haircut, massage, mani/pedi. Doesn’t get much better!

I did have a tearful morning on Friday, when the outfit I wanted to wear clearly wasn’t going to work. Pants are the most difficult, but my button up shirts aren’t going to last me much longer unless I have a sweater on top. As a result, I broke down and placed an order with Pea in the Pod. There was a great selection of colorful, fun pants on sale; hopefully something I ordered works! And last night, while working at J.Crew, I found a few tops on sale that will transition me into the next phase of pregnancy. Many friends have recommended Gap, Old Navy and Target, but every time I look online, I’m not thrilled with what I see; assume this means these stores are in between their seasons and hope in the next month or two new product is rolled out. I’m still on the hunt for dresses, so if you see any out there, let me know!

Other than that, I feel like we’re moving right along.

Week 17 WODs:

Running along the canal

Nov. 18 – 2.15 mile run. Heart rate averaged around 160

Nov. 19 – 2.5 mile run. Heart rate averaged around 160

Plenty of walks!

Food: I wasn’t really hungry this week. Normally, I am famished when I wake up. This week, if I ate a hearty lunch, I didn’t need much more. If I didn’t get to lunch (yes, it was that kind of week where lunch wasn’t always a priority!), I ate a decent dinner and was fine.

One thought on “Pregnancy: Week 17

  1. Pregnancy fashion is not easy. I have found some great options though, especially Isabella Oliver ( They’re out of the UK and have beautiful clothes that I bought with Addie and are still in style two plus years later for this pregnancy. Little pricey, but a few solid pieces (leggings, black pants, white shirts and their tank dress) are totally worth the investment. Old Navy was great for sweats and cheap things, with a few good sweaters here and there. Also, if you don’t have the Zullily app, get it. Lots of mommy and baby deals on it. (Oh, and a Belly Band will take your pre preggers pants a bit further, but after about week 22, you’ll likely have to have the maternity stuff.) Enjoy!! Only time in your life you get a pass on sweatpants all the time. 😉
