17 weeks pregnant

Today I am 17 weeks and 4 days pregnant.  My last post was when I was 11 weeks pregnant.  I thought that I was over the morning sickness at that point.  Little did I realize that it would hold on for another 4 weeks!!!

Somewhere around week 15 it finally subsided.  Shesh, that is longer than any of my other pregnancies!   I am grateful it is gone and for the most part I now only randomly get nauseous for seemingly no reason.  All in all, I am feeling very good.  Happy about being pregnant, mixed with the usual amount of anxiety.

I have my big diagnostic ultrasound next Thursday and I am thrilled to see our baby again, and ensure that s/he is healthy and growing normally.

I will admit that Jeff and I cheated and went to a fun ultrasound place 2 weeks ago to determine the gender of the baby.  And, while I know…I wont be telling until after I get final confirmation next week 🙂

Enjoy the suspense.  Oh, and this picture taken this morning.


Sea World

With Elliott at school all day, I was afforded a opportunity to take Spencer to Sea World.  I was a wonderful day where he got to decide what we would do! 

He decided on a craft—making a polar bear mask and claw!  So proud!
