17 Weeks! (&1day)

Went to my 17wk apt today! Heard LO's HB striaght away Biggrin It's in the High 150s low 160s. It was kicking at the doppler, I couldn't help but giggle!! I have my US to determine gender the 18th at 3:30. I can't wait!!! I made it late in the day in hopes that DH can make it. He's never been to an US and this is for sure our last one so he's just got to make it!! Nothing new with me really though.. I've gained 8lbs this entire pregnancy so far which is AWESOME for me. I don't know about the rest of you mommys but I can't get enough sleep and I'm sooo tired alllll the time!! Is it Sept yet?? Biggrin

Glad you had a great appointment. Luckily my tiredness has improved over the last two weeks. Hopefully your's will soon too. Hope your DH can make your ultrasound. Mine is the day before your's.

ME too! I just can't stand this being so tired all the time...

Hopefully our LO's cooperates & We get to see the goods!

I hope so but neither of my daughters did, so had to go back for extra scans. If this one does not cooperate will probably have to pay to go private as the NHS will only give me another one if medically needed. With my second DD they could not see all the chambers in her heart so It was ok I got another one a week later.

I wonder how some people get their gender ultrasounds so early, at 16-18 weeks, and others have to wait all the way until 20 weeks. I hope I don't have to wait until 20 weeks! It's been 5 weeks since my last ultrasound already and I don't know if I could bear another 6 week wait!

I'm getting mine at 17 weeks because it's the 'second half' of the nuchal scan and that's just when they do the scheduling. The first appointment is at exactly 12 weeks, the second is 5 weeks later at 17 weeks. My doc with DD wouldn't do the '20 weeks ultrasound' until 20 weeks or later, so with DD I found out later.

Congrats on a great appointment!! That's a very high heart rate... maybe a girl?? Wink

It was an awesome one as far as I'm concerned! Cause past two apts we haven't been able to get the HB w/the doppler. I know baby is ok cause I can feel it. But just hearing that thump thump thump makes it soo much better!
