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.

Crazy that you are 16 weeks already! And so exciting that you'll learn the gender soon!

Not to be a wet blanket, but I had a home doppler with the girls and with one I could find her right away, and with the other it always took a while. I think it has more to do with how they are in there. ie how much other "stuff" is in the way.

So at Five Guys there is this portion distortion thing going on! You need to order a little burger and not just a hamburger unless, you want them HUGE. My husband and I also split a regular sized fry. Their fries are really good!

Teaching, chasing a 17 month old, and pregnant! Mercy! :)
