17 Week Appt.

Well this morning was my monthly appointment. I'm now 17 weeks and 2 days, the time is really flying by. The appointment was really quick since the doctor was late for work this morning and seeing that I was her first appointment I didn't get seen until 20 minutes late. I heard the heartbeat which, unfortunately took a little bit of time since the little one was all over the place. The doctor would get it for a few seconds and then s/he would move to a new, more comfortable place. Everything looked good and she was surprised to see that I was still in normal jeans.

I also did my second trimester blood screening (ewww...). This was the first time that I have had my blood drawn, by myself, sitting up without passing out. It was quite an accomplishment and I will say that I'm very proud! The poor phlebotomist; she probably thought I was a nut job since I wouldn't stop talking about the cat on her calendar and snow. Oh well, whatever it takes to stay upright.

Dan will be coming to my next appointment on Thursday the 15th of January (which is also Dad's birthday). This is the big sonogram appointment where we will hopefully (cross your fingers) find out the gender. So until next week....
