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!
 Photobucket
Feeling fat more than pregnant – I HATE THIS STAGE!!!

16 week bump update!
 Photobucket
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.

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

Food cravings:
 CHOCOLATE MILK! Again!! Funny!

Movement?
 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!!

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

Gender:
 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??

Are you Mom Enough?

We have all seen the TIME magazine cover by now…right?

What are your thoughts?

Here are mine:

To each their own – do what works for your family. But make sure it is for your BEST of your family, not just you.

TIME – shame on you! That title is AWFUL!! “Are you Mom Enough?” What is that saying to mothers who do not choose to breastfeed their 4 year old or breastfeed at all?

The mother in that photo looks awkward, pissed and holier than thou in my opinion. That picture is doing NOTHING for the support and legitimacy of AP.

Mostly – I am upset that yet again us mothers feel like we are in a war with one another. These Mommy Wars are sad and upsetting. We all parent differently, let’s not make other mothers feel like less of a mother because of the way they are feeding or bringing up their child.
