Ultrasound Appt

So yesterday we had our next OB appointment and I'm pleased to announce, all is well!  I have been asked over and over again, what do you hope it is?  And I say, "I couldn't possibly be disapointed.  I just want a healthy baby."
It looks like that's what I'm getting.  My 2nd trimester bloodwork came back normal, no need for further testing.  The ultrasound tech said everything looked great, she didn't see anything to be concerned about.
Amen!  Praise the Lord!
Oh, and the baby had it's legs crossed and wouldn't budge. 
So no gender identification.
But am I disappointed?  No.  Just happy about baby.  I'm going to assume it's a girl until proven otherwise (I'm thinking since there was no shot of a penis that even with legs crossed, there is a better chance it's a girl).
I think I get another ultrasound in a few more months (I think) and at that point I'll drink a little OJ before the appointment to get some movement. 

But seriously...What a relief.  A healthy baby to this point.  Tomorrow the baby will be 19 weeks.  I'm so getting ready for this to happen.  Or at least I should say that it's becoming more real.  I'm excited and scared, all rolled into one.
Take care ladies!

16 weeks

I don't have a belly shot for you, but I'll try to post one soon.
Yesterday marked week 16 for this pregnancy.  I think it's a boy.  My reason is because at the last appt. the heartbeat was found right away and with Macie, there was always a few tense moments as we were trying to find it.  So I suppose in my head I think that it's difficult to find girl heartbeats and boy heartbeats will be easy to find.  I'll find out on Oct. 24th!  Which is 2 1/2 weeks away, but still rapidly approaching.  That is the next dr. appt.   I'm excited as DH and I are going to take the day off from work so we can both go to the ultrasound.  Hoping for good news.  (and by the way, in terms of gender, I couldn't be dissapointed.  Boy or Girl = gift from God).
I think I'm feeling the baby move, it's nothing regular, but I feel the baby-shuffle every now and then.  Last night I sneezed and then there was definate movement. It was very reassuring.
I just haven't had much time to post with being back at work and raising an (almost) 17 month old, but I'm still reading what you guys are writing.  I decided one of the things I love about being connected on the blogging world is just finding out about traditions in other parts of the country.  With my last post I have been inspired to finally try '5 Guys' as that sounds like a pretty popular place to eat.  I have stopped my quest for burgers (as I finally started to gain weight, and that freaked me out a bit -- probably 3 pounds in 3 weeks...yikes!) but I'll still find a time to try 5 guys with the DH.

That's all for now.  Just checking in, and I hope all is well in the blogosphere.
