A doctor's appointment about answers...

Today was soo exciting! I got some answers to questions I've been wondering about and some things I really wasn't wondering about, but now know!

Q: Do I have a lot of gas or is the baby moving around and that's what I feel?
A: My baby is punching me! All 5 1/2 inches and 7 or so ounces of it!

Q: What is my blood type?
A: O+

Q: Do I have any STDs?
A: No

Q: Have I been drinking alcohol or taking drugs?
A: Nope

Q: Do I have the cystic fibrosis gene?
A: No

Q: Should I get the Flu and Swine Flu Vaccines
A: Yes...ASAP!

Probably there were a bunch more answered, but the one that I've decided I want to know is AM I HAVING A BOY OR A GIRL?!?! Well, that answer was not given today, even though we were greatly teased by being put in the room with the ultrasound machine. The doctor did have me schedule an appointment for this coming Tuesday with the U/S tech and we will find out the sex! I am soo excited! I know I have quite a few people waiting to know, one especially being my hubby! SOON MY FRIENDS...I may even have a video of the baby...the Dr. told me to bring a CD-R to the next appointment.

We did hear the heartbeat, it was about 140, and Gil got so very excited...he later decides to tell me he will probably pass out at the next appt when we find out the sex...GREAT! I know he'll be fine, but he is so emotional sometimes. I love it! I can't wait to have our own little one!

I think that's all for now. If I think of something I'll let you know! I am happy for my answers and look forward to the answer to the BIG question!!

Time for a group update!

So, Work has TOTALLY been kicking my booty...I am there pretty long hours and when I come home, well it's just time to go to bed! I have the opportunity now, as I sit in an empty house on this beautiful Sunday...My windows are open and there is a BEAUTIFUL breeze update you about the last couple of weeks.

As the weeks pass, I slowly but surely am leaning towards finding out if we are having a boy or a girl. As the 18 week mark arrives tomorrow, and I have an appointment on Wednesday, and I HAVEN'T had an ultrasound in 13 weeks...I think it's time to whip my Ob into shape and get an ultrasound. I will DEFINITELY keep you posted about the outcome.
Nothing's really changed, still have headaches every so often, but no other sickness or over exhaustion or anything of that sort...I think I have been really blessed without illnesses or symptoms for the first 18 weeks!
We have been taking pictures, but my belly doesn't seem to be growing!!!! DANG! I want something to show for these last 18 weeks. I know it has to be, and it is, but not noticeably. I had to buy a belly band yesterday cause jeans are just too tight now! I know I am crazy for wanting my belly to grow so much, because everyone I talk to who is REALLY preggo or just had a baby is like, you are definitely going to want it to shrink at the end. Anyways, enough's the pics:

13 weeks

14 weeks

17 weeks
Is there a difference? I don't see it! I think I just look fat! Well, until next time...hopefully after the Dr. appt WITH an ultrasound and gender determination! We shall see!!!

Catching up

Well...I've been away for a while, but now it is time to get back on track! I have been feeling great, most of the time. I have headaches every so often. Nothin too exciting to mention. I wish when I went to the Dr's they would do a freakin ultrasound! I have friends that are a few weeks behind and have seen their babies 3 or 4 times....I saw mine when it was a peanut, at 5 1/2 weeks! I am now almost 17...WTF?!?!

I gotta talk to my Dr. He's a great Dr, and obviously not worried about it, but I just wanna see squirmy arms and legs and our baby in general...We should be able to find out the sex soon...originally I didn't want to know, but I think I may be moving in the direction to find out...we shall see!

I will start doing my regular postings on Monday...I will also update my tummy pics. I don't think there is a difference, I just think I look like a fatty! Can't wait for your opinions!!
