So now, I am showing what I consider to be a cute little pouch, but I can still fit into most of my old clothes. I mean, I am doing good at 17 weeks, right? My honey looked at my tummy the other day and brilliantly proclaims, "well, you aren't skinny anymore." I could just kill him.

Here are some thanks giving day pictures. My mom brought down her new dog, Molly, for the week. He got along good with my kitty, thanks goodness.
It was a really great day. It was really special for us because we know this is our last year as the Sund family of three. Next year little baby Sund will be here and it will be different. It has been just the three of us for a long time. :) Jon lay on the couch most of the day, just trying to stay out of our way in the kitchen. I am wearing some of my small maternity clothes now, they fit just right.
That night we decided to let Alysha open up a present. I know it is soooo early, but I knew we would enjoy this gift together, and she begged and begged, so we did it. It is a bad idea to put the presents under the tree too early because it just makes Alysha want to open them so bad. I only lasted two days and she opened one already!! lol. It was a game that was on the top of her wish list. It is called catch phrase. If you have never played it, it is soooo fun. There is this little machine that gives you catch phrases and you have to get your team to guess them by giving clues. Now there is a time limit and which ever team has the machine thing in their hand when the time runs out does not get any points. It is so stressful, but so exciting!! Jon, Alysha, mom and I all sat around that night playing catch Phrase until midnight. We laughed so hard. Mom finally had to quit cause she was leaving the next day and had to get some sleep. My mother plays cut throat, she is a tough opponent. She plays to win, no matter what the cost. But, in the end, whoever was on Jon's team won, cause he is the best player ever. It really was a special day all around.

I am still not showing very much. I saw a friend of mine down here that is three weeks ahead of me and she has a nice baby bump. I am still in my regular clothes. My jeans and shirts all still fit, but I have to unbutton the jeans if i sit for a long time cause they start to hurt my belly. Not that I am complaining, I do not want to be huge and uncomfortable until I have to be. :) I know I will get plenty of that in the coming months.
I have started wearing my maternity shorts at home. They are just so much more comfortable than my regular shorts. I am wearing my maternity clothes I have that are size small. They fit perfectly right now, they do not even look like maternity. Most of my clothes my friends in Dothan gave to me and I have gotten some really cute stuff. I am really enjoying wearing some of my maternity stuff.
Happy turkey week!

Jon and I spent one night down in Destin while we were down visiting family in Dothan. It was so nice. We always used to do to Destin when we lived in Dothan. Jon is from there and considers it "home". It is our favorite place, we have some really great memories there. Destin has the most beautiful beaches! It was cold outside, but we sat on the beach for a long time and just enjoyed the view. It was so nice. Where we live in Florida does not have beautiful beaches, we have to drive two hours to St pete/Clearwater to hit some pretty water and beach. The water on this side of Florida is brackish and the only beach they have is man made. I wish we were stationed near some emerald green waters.

They set up the appointment for my next ultrasound!!!!!! I am so excited. We go on December 18 to have the ultrasound that will tell us the sex of the baby. Jon said today that if it is a boy he might cry. I want it to be a boy for my sweet hubby. Of course he will be fine with a girl too, he just says he will be outnumbered. lol.
Even better news, I only gained one pound! WOW! I ate alot this week while we were on vacation. I was pleasantly surprise to have not gained ten pounds. The lady who took my blood said I don't even look preggo. That will not last for long though. I have started wearing my size small maternity clothes. My jeans still fit, they are just tight in the midsection and after a while they start to hurt my tummy. The maternity shirts and pants I have that are smalls and fit perfect right now. I am not big enough to show, but I have a baby bump. (Note: I gained a total of three pounds, but I had lost two while I was sick, so for my pregnancy I have gained only one pound in four months!!!) I hope to keep my weight under control, I just don't wanna put on 80 pounds, that will be so much more I have to lose.
They also gave me a flu shot. I have never had one of those before, so i was skeptical. The doctor highly recommended it, so i decided to do it. I don't like shots. They also had some blood work done that tells if I the baby has a high risk for diseases like spinabifida and Downs Syndrome. It was optional, but we decided to do it. They said it does not determine whether your baby has one of these birth defects, only if you are a higher risk for them. He said some people choose to abort if they find out that they have a baby with downs. Of course, we would never abort, no matter what we found out. I was skeptical at first, I was unsure if i wanted to know. Knowing ahead of time would just make me worry, but Jon said there would be benefits to the test, so we decided to do it. Hopefully nothing will come of it. It is all in God's hands.

I woke up this morning and my feet are aching. I tried to put all my weight on my feet to walk and I was in terrible pain! Apparently all my chocolate gathering fun reeked havoc on my feet, which were swollen and aching. They hurt so bad. I have read in the pregnancy books that being on your feet is not good for you, but I did not notice anything last night. I had on my good tennis shoes. Who knew?
