Wow, this year is going by so quickly!  Is this pregnancy going by quickly for you, or does it seem to by dragging by?  Have you been thinking of or picked out a name yet?

It IS going by pretty quickly! I'm sixteen weeks today, and I think after 20 weeks when we find out the gender it'll start to go super fast. That's good in a way, but bittersweet since I won't be having any more children. I keep thinking "I'll never have this day of pregnancy again." Helps me to enjoy it more. We haven't really discussed any names yet. DH and I disagree in general on names, so I figure there's no reason to start the discussion until we can narrow it down to boy or girl names.

Speaking of 16 weeks, my appt. is this coming Wednesday. This is appt. where they will do a blood draw to test the level of alpha-fetoprotein. I had a very high number with Leslie, and they called me within a week to say that there was a pretty good chance she had a neural tube defect or an abdominal wall defect. Thankfully she had neither, but it did get me an ultrasound at 17 weeks, which revealed that she was a girl. So I'm kinda sorta hoping my number is high or low again so that I can get the ultrasound, but of course I'd never want anything to be wrong with the baby. We shall see what the blood test reveals...
