Baby Bump Update - 15, 16, 17 weeks

I have been a MAJOR slacker on blogging and updating, especially about Baby 2.0! So sorry!!

So here are some updates:

15 week bump update!
Feeling fat more than pregnant – I HATE THIS STAGE!!!

16 week bump update!
Feeling like I am getting bigger but really want to start seeing that BUMP!!

No 17 week photo! :O(
I need to get better at doing it every Saturday morning.

So as of today I am 17 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Time for my first survey for this pregnancy.

How far along?
17 weeks and 2 days

Weight gain/loss:
 I have lost 2 pounds as of today. No gain yet.

 NERVOUS! This baby has already been a handful. A scary handful!! 2 weeks ago today I started bleeding HEAVY. Since then I have been spotting and I hate it. I went to the ER last Wednesday for a lot of spotting and everything checked out fine. For the last 3 days I have been spotting again. Old blood this time which is better than that bright red stuff but damn!! Come on body – chill out!! The ER doctor said the fact is that some women spot in pregnancy. I hope it stops. If you have a spotting story please let me know! I really need some reassurance. On top of the bleeding/spotting I have horrible heartburn daily and “morning sickness” most days. I never threw up with Jude but this time I have thrown up a number of times.

Maternity clothes?
 Shirts – make me feel better. So far I am able to wear most of my normal sized pants.

 Sleep is fine – getting used to not sleeping on my tummy though, that is hard!

Food cravings:
 CHOCOLATE MILK! Again!! Funny!

 Nope – nothing yet. Hoping soon so that I feel better about all this bleeding and spotting.

What I miss?
 A carefree pregnancy – last time was easier!! I just want everything to be okay!!

Best moment this week:
 Seeing the baby on the Ultrasound at the ER. Mother’s day with my boys! Jude picked out some flowers and a balloon for me! He was proud!! ;)

What I'm looking forward to:
 Honestly - I just want the spotting to stop.

Next Appointment:
 OB appointment – May 21st - “BIG” Ultrasound June 1st!!

 Hitting 17 weeks – I really cannot believe I am already this far along!!

 Jeremy thinks boy. I am leaning towards girl because how HIGH maintenance this baby is already!! ;) Heart rate = 169 at 12 weeks, 148 at 16 weeks. We find out on June 1st! Thoughts??


  1. I had heavy bleeding. I was told that I had pockets of blood that caused it ;(

    I wish I had advice

  2. I'm hoping boy so our boys can have lots of fun getting into trouble together as they grow up. I will keep praying that this pregnancy starts getting easier and that the spotting stops. It can't be easy to have to deal with that. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

  3. OH! I was so excited to read your updates! You are looking great...NOT FAT! Never say fat, beautiful is more like it. I think it is a boy. I will pray for the spotting to stop!
