Baby Update

I failed to let you know, those of you who care, that I did go to MY doctor for the baby "finally". This was almost two weeks ago at 17 weeks. Everything is fine and the doctor wasn't worried about me at all. She said the whole breathing thing is normal and gave me lots of explanations...... The exciting part of the trip was hearing the heart beat "really good" for the first time. The heart rate was 140. My bets are in that it is a boy, but I don't care. I know that you CANNOT go by the heart rate to determine boy or girl, but in general boys are lower and girls are higher. Lindsey never had a heart rate that low. Hers was always in the high 150's to 160's. So, ~~ DRUM ROLL PLEASE ~~ my ultrasound for 20 weeks has been scheduled for 2/4, next Monday, and the guessing game will be over - hopefully! I will drink my Dr. Pepper or Mt. Dew as I did with Lindsey while on the way to the doctors and hopefully the baby will be in the mood to "move"!!!! I will definitely be back to update you all on the news - no secrets here :) I am very excited and anxious. 1 more week to the half way point!

Can't believe you are almost to the half-way point! How exciting to (probably) know what you will be having in just a week!
