17 weeks

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I know I am hitting y'all with a double whammy this week with bump-dates, but I am just trying to play catch up, and now I am all caught up :)

How Far Along: 17 weeks as of 11/15

Size of the Baby: baby is the size of a sweet potato

Maternity Clothes: Belly band is still sufficing and I am loving my new maternity jeans in denim and red!

Stretch marks: none

Weight gain: Still about 3 lbs. I've had some rather painful indigestion that almost sent me to the ER, so this really messed up my appetite. Now I am on Nexium twice a day (80mg total + 2 Zantac per day) to help with the indigestion. Any other Mama's been prescribed this amount? I am so nervous about the baby's health even though I trust my doctor.

Sleep: Sleep is good, just waking up super early for some reason.

Best Moment of the Week: Celebrating Thanksgiving and going home to Louisiana for some much needed family and friend time! I can't wait to just relax and enjoy some peace and quiet for awhile.

Movement: More bubbles and a few jabs :)

Food Cravings: Nothing...

Gender: Not yet, we find out on November 23rd! We're so excited!

Belly Button in or out: In

Anything making you queasy or sick: Doing pretty good here. Just am trying not to eat small portions to help prevent those feelings.

What I miss:
 I miss wine. Joel and I went to Bonefish grill this weekend, and I just really wanted some white wine to go with my fish.

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the sex this Friday!!!

Nursery: Have the crib, glider, and theme for either sex picked out. Can't wait to know which one it will be on Friday!

Emotions: Those empathetic feelings have definitely escalated. I cried through Twilight and literally bawled my eyes out in the movie A little piece of Heaven (with Kate Hudson). Then I had a dream that night that a family member of mine passed away, and I woke up sobbing. So, yes. I'd say emotions are especially high right now. But, I am glad it's only the empathy that has my emotions high. 

Also, today I did a little feature/interview over at TJ's blog, and I loved answering her questions, so go check it out here, to learn more about me :) 


  1. Your little bump is too cute! Can't wait for you to find out the sex. So excited! Then you can get to work on the nursery.

  2. You are the cutest prego ever - you barely even LOOK prego! Sheesh. Now I hate you. JK LOVE YOUR FACE OFF! :)

  3. I can't wait to see how cute you look in that dress when your bump starts getting bigger. :) These updates are going to be so special to look back on!

  4. I am 15 weeks and have had terrible heartburn/acid reflux thru my whole pregnancy so far! I take Protonix (a form of nexium) every single day...if I miss a day, it is NOT good. So, I am super careful not to ever miss a day. And I will take a Zantac if I need it too. So thankful there are things we can take that are safe!!

  5. You look so cute! Congratulations on the baby!

  6. you are so cute with your little baby bump! :)

  7. Cutest little bump, for sure! Thank you for sharing your pregnancy :)
    I'm excited to follow along on your journey!

  8. Congratulations on another milestone! I'm sure you all are so excited about finding out the gender! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with friends and family :)

  9. Yay, love these posts! And hope you feel better soon! Indigestion is NEVER fun!

  11. Ahh your cuteness is giving me baby fever! It's so awesome that you are keeping record of everything! It goes by so fast that I don't even remember the sweet parts of my pregnancy!
