My Second Pregnancy: 17 Week Bump Update

17 weeks already. I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy is going. To be fair though, I didn't tell anyone that I was pregnant with C until I was around 24 weeks gone!

We had our gender scan on Wednesday and found out that we're having a little girl! We've done a little bit of shopping and bought pink vests and a gorgeous red Minnie Mouse romper. Chris's mum also bought us some pink dribble bibs. Her wardrobe is beginning to fill! 

This past few days my lower back has been aching. I don't remember this with C and especially not this early! The bottom of my tummy is feeling heavier so she's definitely growing! I've felt her move for the first time this week too.

The skin on my face is very oily apart from my forehead which is SO dry! Craving-wise, I've really wanted curry - but only from our local Chinese takeaway, mmm! 

At 17 weeks, she is now around 11cm long and weighs approximately 140g. Her skeleton is rubbery cartilage but will start to harden soon. Her sweat glands are developing too!
