17 Weeks Down... 23 Weeks To Go!

17 weeks already!!! I'm starting to feel like this pregnancy is starting to fly by (thank God!).

Nothing new to report really. I've definitely started feeling flutters and baby is on the move! Kind of a cool feeling- I think it moves most when I'm listening to tunes in my car. My baby is going to be a rock star!! Still counting the seconds until my next ultrasound. Everyone seems to be getting anxious to find out what we're having.

Pregnancy is such a weird thing. There are days that I love it, but most days, I have hated it. I very much do not like feeling "under the weather" all the time which is how I've felt for the past 3 months. On top of the nausea... which still exists. For the most part the vomiting has ceased (mostly at my refusal to give in to it) but the nausea is ever present. I believe I may have permanent bruising and marks on my wrists from the stupid Seabands that I've been wearing. I'm tired of food tasting funny and my fear of eating. At least I've had wonderful breath! I can't seem to eat and then not have a breath mint after to get rid of the awful taste in my mouth. I've now started an insomnia trend which I don't understand as I am SO tired all day and then I get to bed sleep for an hour and then I'm screwed for the rest of the night. Perhaps it is training for when baby comes!! Enough of the rant though. I LOVE my pregnant belly. I love the way people smile at me, open doors for me and overall how special I feel. It is kind of like being invited into a special club that nobody understands about until they experience it for themselves. It's wonderful!

We got AMAZING news the other day! We were invited by my husband's company on a trip to TAHITI!!!! We'll be spending a week on the beach in Tahiti, Bora Bora & Moorea. I think we might still be in shock, but we're so excited for this once in a lifetime vacation. It has sort of become our "Babymoon" in other words, our last chance to get away before the baby comes. I cannot say enough how excited I am!!!!
