Week 17 appt

Had my week 17 appt yesterday. It was pretty short and sweet! I've gained a total of 10 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. The baby heart rate was 155. Of course my doctor said that based on the old wives tale the baby heart rate was more towards a girl lol I had blood drawn for the spinia bifida test. If there are any problems with that the doctor said she will call. I have one more appt next month then I start making the twice a month appts. Big ultra sound is still scheduled for FRIDAY!

I can relate. We TTC a girl following the girl diet and using the O+12 method (TTC 12 hours after +opk). I have in my mind it's a boy, so at least that way I won't be disappointed and know what to expect, but I figured if it's a girl then I'd actually be surprised/happy.  And... like you said, in the end all that matters is healthy baby.

EEK- so I'm still excited, but now I'm nervous for you, too, lol!
