Darling's 17th Week Update

Bump Pic!

 Oh, I need to stop taking these pics right before bed! We had such a looong day!
Little Darling's Size: An onion, approx 5.1  inches long!! Putting some meat on his/her bones!

Countdown: 161 Days to go!  Due Easter :)

Clothing: I broke down and purchased some maternity jeans! Its crazy!!! Living in LA...they have all the top brand jeans in "maternity." Yes, I tried on $200 maternity jeans yesterday..but walked out with $64.95 (Sale!!) But the more expensive ones did fit me amazing..just couldn't justify.. 
What I Miss: We went out this past weekend to a Halloween Party on Friday..and I actually met two other Ladies who were preggo! It was great!! Today, they had Pumpkin Races!! Soo much fun!!! Click here to see what I mean!  Still, I missed going to San Diego with my friends and getting all dolled up!!!! :(

Cravings: So, I totally did not eat healthy this Changs..ugh!

Exercising: But I did hit the gym a lot this week..and we did a good hike in the sand along the coast today.. Its tough to walk in sand! My muscles are super sore today!

Symptoms: Starting to get leg cramps in the middle of the night... to be expected!

Total Weight Gain: I will learn this Nov 22nd..our next OB appoint! Till then, keep exercising!

Gender: Who knows at this point... !! I've given up! 3 weeks!!

Sleep: Better this week.. but then again...I've been going non-stop!

Movement: HOLY FLUTTERS!! wow, Im feeling it this past week!

On a Positive Note: Since I'm an Occupational Therapist, we have to obtain CEUs during the year...well I found one!!  "Designing an Exercise Program for the Pregnant Woman." Umm kinda perfect timing right?! I learned A LOT! Tons of studies show that exercise at least 3x/week thru the entire third trimester, Major positive outcomes for Mom and Baby!  I could go on and on....

A Message To Our Darling: Oh, I hope you are doing good in there.. I'm tired of calling you "it" or him/her...I can't wait to give you a proper name! We are getting excited for our Nov 22nd appointment!!! When we get to see you again ! 

***I posted a poll! Located TOP left!!  What will the gender be? 
Please vote!!!! ***


  1. Any pregnant woman who manages to work out 3 times a week during the third trimester, especially at the end of it, is my hero. :)

  2. So cute! I'm loving that the red cups are out that means Christmas will be here soon!!!

  3. I can't believe you're working out that much... props to you!
