17 Week Pregnancy update {baby #3}

17 weeks pregnancy update

So here I am starting my little pregnancy updates on my blog.

I am feeling so lucky to have this little baby growing inside of my belly. Its all safe and cosy and growing stronger everyday. I have started to feel some little movements maybe once a day or every other day, when I sit down and really concentrate. Its so soft and gentle it makes me smile.

It is truly such a special gift to carry your child and I wont ever take it for granted. I love my children and I am so thankful I have been blessed with each of them. I say it often but helping them, nurturing them, and bringing them up is truly one of my passions. I want to raise good, kind people. I think thats what this world needs. I might not always get it right and I might shout sometimes but nonetheless life is wonderful and creating life is even more magical.

I am now 17 weeks and like I said previously I am going to really try to document this pregnancy on my blog as much as I can. I am also making weekly blogs of my pregnancy on my youtube channel.

Our baby’s fingerprints are now fully formed and their hearing gets better everyday. Baby is about 5 inches long. Which is just amazing to me and weighs as much as a turnip. Baby’s skeleton is turing from soft cartilage to bone and the umbilical cord grows stronger and thicker everyday. We cant wait to meet you little baby.


We still don’t know.


I have been in a really good mood for a while now. I have my grumpy moments but thats just me and not pregnancy related! Generally speaking I feel better and healthier then I ever have for a long time. My hair is growing so much and I feel really well. I think that has a lot to do with the sun too. I do love the sun and it makes such a difference to me. It really wakes me up. My energy levels are so good too. I am buzzing around working out of home and at home, nesting already I think as I am always cleaning.


Non really. Slight frequent urination and tender breasts.


Sleeping really well. Although I do wake up for the toilet a lot. Twice a night is a good night!


Just recently in the last two days I have felt a little movement. Which has been amazing. Because I was beginning to worry. The movements are so gentle though it would be very easy to miss them which is why I think I hadn’t felt them yet. I am excited for them to get stronger and harder as baby grows.


I have avoided tea and coffee throughout my whole pregnancy as it made me feel sick. (I love tea and coffee) and just this week I have started to enjoy a nice cup of tea again which has been lovely because I do love a cuppa in the mornings. I love egg still and enjoying avocado. And thats about it at the moment.


Feeling baby very gentle hello movements in there. It was really lovely. I am so pleased.


Feeling more movements and for this pregnancy to carry on as it is. I am really enjoying it and this little baby. I also cant wait for Daniel, Sophia and Archie to feel the new member of our family move. That will probably bring tears to my eyes.

    How exciting! I have three, it’s a lovely number. I do get broody though reading posts like this and consider a fourth! It sounds like a lovely stage of pregnancy where the symptoms aren’t too bad and everything is just getting to that exciting stage of things x

    Feeling those first movements was my favourite part with both of my pregnancies. Will you be finding out eh gender or are you keeping it a surprise? x

    Oh congratulations… I loved being pregnant. Those days are gone for me now… and it makes me sad.

    I might have to follow your pregnancy in lieu of having another of my own.

    I love this! You’re such a lucky bean. My oldest baby is now 10 so I won’t be having any more babies, but I adored being pregnant. This was such a lovely read ❤ Looking forward to more updates

    This is such a lovely post, especially as you’re in such a great place right now, after the morning sickness before everything starts to swell a little! I’ve just had my second son, 3 months ago, so I’m really starting to feel a little more like me already. And even now, I miss being pregnant! How bizarre is that I thought it would take longer to be honest.
    So pleased you are feeling well, you look incredible! Looking forward to reading more about it.
