I had my 16 weeks appointment today. the doppler couldnt find the heartbeat and she wanted me to get an ultrasound. had to go back in an hour and a half later cause i had to pick up the kids from school. (nobody else can but me) and when i got there. she started to look and found the baby. and the heartbeat. its 154 today. she tried to see if it was a boy or a girl but the darn cord was in between the legs and she just gave up after a minute. oh well. that was a crazy scary afternoon. i am switching OBs back to the same one that delivered my sons. (last two kids) and i am seeing him finally next week. and then hopefully they will schedule my ultrasound before the end of the year. i will be already 20 weeks by then. my kids are telling me they are praying its a girl. lol and my older two (girls 9 and 5) keep giving me baby name suggestions for a girl. lol. anyway tomorrow is my medicaid appointment and i am trying to get prepared completely so it doesnt get delayed and will start paying the doctor's office asap. (i have been on regular grant medicaid but i have been told ill have trouble getting everything covered unless i switch to just pregnancy medicaid)
I hit 16w yesterday . Insomnia's back which blows. I was SO tired when I laid down last night and fell asleep ok...but 2 hours later I was WIDE awake . Made for a long day at work today.
Next appt is Thurs; I'm hoping to convince my OB to pull out the portable u/s so we can get a peek. I'm dying not having seen baby yet! We're telling my family Saturday when we see them for Christmas and I'd feel so much better/more confident if we've seen baby. I don't even need to take a gender peek though it would be nice!
Quoting MommaSav2:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Expecting_Mommy18:</b>" So excited for Wednesday! I get to find ... [snip!] ... I get to find out what my little bebe's gender..<3"</blockquote> Me too! I'll be 18 weeks exactly, what about you?"
Congrats to everyone who found out what they're having!
I'm just over 18 weeks, and we sent out our Christmas cards with our pregnancy announcement picture yesterday. I'm so surprised that we were able to keep it a secret for so long (DH only told one guy at work, and that's so he could come to my appointments), but I'm super nervous about other people knowing soon. I still don't feel ready to share the news yet, but I'll be seeing a lot of family this weekend and even DH says it's too obvious to hide anymore. Last night he was trying to be all sensitive about it and said, "Well, it's just that you have a little teeny baby bump now and I think they'd notice." haha It was cute, because he thought I was going to get all emotional or something.
I go back on 12/13 for my big ultrasound, so I'm looking forward to seeing our little ham sammich again. ♥

Haha that's cute! My ultrasound is on the same say! 9 days!
I cannot wait til Janurary 8th! That's when I find out the gender. It's funny though, cause last Thursday at my appt, I had gotten more pictures. Well of coarse she did in between the legs, and now that I have shown people, they think it might be a boy. I know I'm still too soon to even know, but it kind of does lol. Oh well, I am going to have to wait. I'm just so excited!
Holy crap! Mini panic attack at my appointment this morning. I'm 18 weeks exactly and doctor couldn't find baby's heart beat for 12 minutes. I was losing it. And I had my almost 6 year old with me and he kept saying "mommy infant year the baby. Where is it?". Twelve minutes feels like a lifetime when you're in that position. Thankfully, as she was explaining that "just to be safe" she was going to send me over to the hospital for a quick ultrasound, baby decided to show up! Whew! So scary. Heart beat sounded good once we found it. So now tomorrow I will go for my early GD test and my anatomy ultrasound. Yay!
Quick question, do you think going for my GD test (with the yucky orange drink) right before an ultrasound is ok?
