I am about to begin my 17th week of pregnancy and thank god I am not throwing up everything I eat. I have managed to gain about 5 lbs or so at this point. I am so excited to be in the second trimester.

In a few weeks I will get my fourth ultrasound and the baby should be so much bigger than the last time I saw it. My DH doesn't want to find out what the baby is until she/he comes out, but I feel like its a girl.

We have come up with names for both and are still between two middle names for each, I have a feeling we will wait until we meet the little bugger to pick the middle name.

As for the fun part of pregnancy I am getting to the point of feeling the baby, I am pretty sure I felt it at yoga the other night. Which was such a wonderful experience. My yoga class is going to be so helpful, I love it already and it was only one session. A friend of mine from work is taking it with me, but she is due in a few weeks so she won't be there the whole time, but the other women are all right around me in dates so it will be fun to watch everyone grow and get excited about their babies.

My DH is getting excited about this and randomly rubs my belly now, which is super cute. Last night I was crying at a movie we were watching (freaking hormones) and he said I was cute. He is also really enjoying my expanding waist line, I think it makes it real for him since he doesn't have to experience any of my symptoms its the one thing he can see to make it real.

We will be moving in about two months and so I am looking for a place that will be good for a new baby, hopefully I can paint the nursery and start decorating right away. I am thinking of going with sage green for the main color with some yellow accents since we don't know what the baby is.

Well that's about it at 17 weeks. Can't believe its already been 4 months. Only 23 weeks to go!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
