"For I know the plans I have for you', declares the Lord..." Jeremiah 29:11

Still looking more as if I've enjoyed a few too many cartons of ice cream rather than looking like I'm pregnant.  The bump watch continues...

How Far?: 17 weeks 5 Days (at time of photo)

Baby Size: approx. 5 ounces and 5 inches (head to rump) About the size of a turnip.

Gender: Still unknown but we will know SOON! (hopefully!)

Movement: I am still not sure if what I am feeling is actual "movement" but I have felt something.

Sleep: Gotta love my new pillow!! I also don't get up as often to pee which has helped a great deal. I do, however, feel as if I am more tired when I'm waking up than I was before when I was having a difficult time sleeping. Weird!

Maternity Clothes: Believe it or not, the dress pictured above is NOT a maternity dress. I still haven't purchased any maternity clothes and am still just wearing everything in my wardrobe that is the least restricting as possible.

Symptoms: Just when I thought the headaches were gone for good... UGH!!! No fun! Let's hope they vanish completely within the next couple weeks as Dr. S predicts. I have also found my energy level less than adequate or less than what it has been. I think I can also attribute the depleting energy to the Florida humidity gracing us with its presence over the last week or so. And I do NOT foresee the humidity to be going anywhere (but getting worse) anytime in the near future, unfortunately!

Aversions: Still none.

Cravings: Still sweets and fruit (watermelon and pineapple in particular).

What I miss:  Just in the past few days, I have really wanted sushi. :(

Feelings toward pregnancy: Holy Moly... We're having a BABY!!!!

Best moment(s) of this week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at our appointment on Friday. Amazing!!!! And Dr. Sweet saying we can come back in 2 weeks (instead of waiting until our next appointment... in a month) to find out what it is!! Our anatomy ultrasound is scheduled for Wednesday (5/29) afternoon. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

What I am looking forward to this week: Every nap I can squeeze in!


  1. You look great!!! Can't wait to hear if baby is a he or a she!!
