I had my 18 week appointment today and it went well. I met another doctor in the office because mine was out doing an c-section. I told her I was worried about lack of movement and she said I'm probably just too busy with the other kids to notice the lighter movements but should feel peanut in a week or so.
She told me that urine, bp, and weight gain looked good. I mentioned I was anxiously awaiting my u/s, but that it wasn't for another 8 weeks. She said, "Well, you are measuring a bit small. How about we get you in for an u/s next week?" Then she smiled at me I doubt she would have said anything if I had mentioned my anticipation, but at the beginning of my pregnancy, peanut measured about 6 days behind what I thought was my due date, so I'm not too alarmed yet. She knew my insurance didn't cover an u/s unless it were requested by the doctor. I am super excited!!! I thought I would have to wait another 8 weeks to see this little booger. I'm just praying for a healthy peanut, so hopefully I get good news!
All in all, a great appointment! I go back in 4 weeks for my routine checkup, and then I get to schedule my 4D u/s!!
Yeah for a good appt I cannot wait to see pics of the baby. I was the same way with movement I never felt baby move till Dylan was in bed and I wasn't busy doing other things. Now that I am almost 21 weeks I feel her a lot more.
That's so awesome that she's getting you in early for your u/s! I'm the same way, just not feeling a whole lots. A little flutter here and there, but really irregular and usually just when I'm sitting and trying to pay attention to it.
Kids keep you occupied, that's for sure! I'm shocked at how fast this pregnancy is going compared to my pregnancy with my daughter. I think it has a lot to do with chasing a toddler around all day.
KUP on your ultrasound! Are you finding out the sex or are you team green??
Thanks for the reassurance on movement ladies! It makes me feel a bit better. I think I felt something today at school while I was reading to my students. I was a wee bit excited! I'm also looking forward to this u/s! I want to stay on team green, but hubby is adamant that we find out the gender. If we do find out, we won't share with anyone. We'll just keep it between the two of us (if we can )
