17 week appt update...
Thu, 06-23-2011 - 6:48pm

Big sigh of relief from me today.

I had an OB appt this afternoon (17w4d but OB chart says 16w6d), next Tuesday I go to the specialist. I've had a nagging feeling that I wouldn't make it to that appt. I had bad dreams last night of no heartbeat, and yes, I said dreams, several of them actually. Needless to say I've been a nervous wreck all day. Well, got to the doc and my bp was high for me, but ok at 134/80. I told him I was nervous and told him why. He is so great to me, he said "that's understandable with what you've been through". He asked if I've felt the baby moving I said yes for a few weeks but not today, BUT I'm not feeling it every single day yet anyway so I was trying to remain positive. He said I hear it, but I didn't hear it, and he was still moving the wand so I was a bit nervous, but within seconds there it was, that woosh woosh of my lil nugget's heart :) Thank the Lord!

We talked for a minute about the appt with the specialist and he gave me my screening results, he said if anything was going to show, we would most likely not have "excellent" results, and he said we were 1 in 5000 for downs, 1 in 5000 for trisomy 18, 1 in 5000 for neural tube defects, and 1 in 5000 for the others tested :) so he said our appt Tuesday should be great! I asked if they will tell me the sex and he smiled and said they sure will, AND they'll tell you "if we're wrong, we'll buy you a pizza" :D I feel better, at least for a few days!

So, five more days until we find out if nugget is a princess or a prince :) YAY!!!

Yay for a greaT appt. I had a dream like that the other day,i guess cause we are PAL it's normal to freak out from time to time. I know its scary though.

Yay for a great appt! I know it's so reassuring hearing that hb, and it sounds like your doc is simply amazing. It's nice knowing we have people like that on our side. I am excited for your next appt and the big reveal!
