20 Week Appt

Fairly Ho-Hum appointment today. DH had to work so my mom came with me to watch Erin. I had been promising Erin for a week that she could see the baby on the TV at the Doctor's so I HAD to bring her. My mom was more than happy to be able to some and see the little man. Wink

The baby is still a boy Biggrin He measured @14 ounces and 9 inches long. He moved around and kicked quite a bit (which I can totally feel now).

Doctor said everything looked good and I go back to see him at 28 weeks to check the baby's growth due to my thyroid.

I have my regular check up with my OB on Friday and I'm thinking I'm going to be put off of work. She wanted to do it last month but I told her to wait since I was starting a two week vacation anyway. My commute from hell and the fact that I think I've started getting braxton hicks-and they pretty much only occur after i work all day-should be enough for her.

What did Erin think of your appointment? Charlotte is the same age and she's very interested in my baby belly and loves to listen with the doppler. What a cute age!

I'm glad it went well.

I have my 20 week appointment on Friday and my big ultrasound is this Wednesday. I wonder if I'll be getting a boy too?

She'e interested at first, but the novelty wears off. My mom had to take her out of the room after a little while. But, in fairness, the tech took a long time getting the measuements.

OOOHHHHH! Good Luck on Wednesday :O)

Yay for a healthy boy in there.... STILL! Wink We took Seth to the first u/s too and he could have cared less. Lol. Some days he says, 'no baby. Yuck.' Hehe. How does Erin like the thought of a brother?

She talks about her baby sister a lot, Marie. I keep trying to tell her no, baby brother, but it's not sticking in her head. She LOVES babies so I think she is kind of excited about it. As much a a two year old could be I guess.
