17 Weeks: Weekend Updates

This weekend totally flew by, but it was great, and I'm already ready for a nap this morning.
The baby front is still going well. 17 weeks feels good and I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts. They say that you get an energy boost during the second trimester, and I sometimes feel extra energetic, but mostly I am appreciative of not feeling like the walking zombie I was during the first trimester.

Baby is now about the size of a small onion! That seems similar to an avocado to me, which was the size before this.

I also read that you are supposed to have an increased appetite during the second trimester. Um, that has been the case since week 8 or so! If my appetite increased more than it did then, I would be constantly inhaling food. It's actually allowing me to enjoy some of my normal foods again. I ate a sweet potato skin the other day. Major step forward. I usually eat the skin of my potatoes, but they have been grossing me out for several weeks.

I recently got sofritas aka tofu at Chipotle and it is delicious and full of protein, which I seem to need always.
This weekend was stuffed full, because I had to get all my shopping and housework done on Saturday.

Saturday:
I brought back a bunch of books from my mom's house and filled up my bookshelf. Turns out I rebought a bunch of books that I didn't even realize I already had at her house. Woops. At least it's only the ones I loved enough to buy twice.
I finished reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I found this cute collection's edition at Target. I love the illustrations in the front and back covers.

Sunday:
We went to Hershey Park for their Military Appreciation Day. It was wonderful, even though I did not want to get up early and come back to work this morning after all the walking we did. I did not take pics of all the food, but there were crab fries, Dippin Dots, and Red Robin sweet potato fries consumed and all were amazing.
I did not ride any of those rides - nope, not at all. I did ride the cars ride that takes you around a little track. We managed to break the ride and somehow disable the car and started rolling backwards down a hill, but luckily no one was behind us and the turn in the track eventually stopped us XD. We had to get a worker to come rescue us and restart out little lawn mower motor car.

Hope you had a great weekend and your Monday is not too rough!

  1. haha. Sorry - I had to laugh - it would be my luck to break a ride car too :)
    Eat all the foods momma. Let that appetite go crazy - you have the perfect excuse to chow down.

  2. Reading your post makes me miss my pregnancy updates. I thought sometimes the food size comparison could be a little deceiving. There is a size comparison chart I found while I was pregnant and it uses actual things and not food, I think it's pretty interesting, here is the pin!

  5. Chipotle really is the best! I definitely have bought books multiple times before, and you're right that must mean that you just love it. And hooray for military appreciation day! It sounds like you had some great food there too!

  6. I love Chipotle, and that pic makes me want some again (though I just had a burrito yesterday). I've tried the sofritas one time and they were pretty good but I couldn't finish the whole thing. I normally just go for the fajita veggies and no meats :)

    1. I had the same thing happen to me. I loved it but couldn't finish it and took some home to have with dinner. Next time I'll try the salad without rice so it may be less filling. I'm normally a fajitas and veggies girl too, but I've been in the mood for sofritas!

  7. Ah, look at you! Such a teeny tiny baby bump! So cute! So glad to hear that you have energy again!

    I haven't tried the sofritas at Chipolte, but I bet I'd love them! That might be what I try next time I'm there! :)

  9. Oh no! I've never thought about what would happen if one of those track cars broke down, haha! Glad it was incident-less! I agree that an onions and avocado are somewhat similar in size :)
