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

So glad you had a good appointment, and yay for scheduling your ultrasound! I am totally with you on not being able to get enough sleep. 2nd trimester is worse for me than 1st when it comes to fatigue.

i'm right there with you I take a nap and get up and want to go back to bed like 20 minutes later. I do have to say this is one time I'm glad I'm a teacher so I'll have 90% of my 3rd trimester off. The worst will be the last 2 weeks when school starts...

Hope your DH is able to make it! Sometimes it seems so abstract to the partner, since they aren't the ones feeling the baby moving around all the time, or puking, or getting exhausted or whatever, so the u/s can help make it seem more real.

Glad you had a good appointment (lol at baby kicking the doppler), and can't wait to hear about the next one!

@indianajones, Ohh it's real to him! lol Just not as real to me. He gets annoyed at my sleeping habits as of late I think... Cause I'm so lax about house work... I can't help it, I just don't have any energy! hahaha. Thats how he knows for sure I'm pregnant. Shouldn't be too long before he can start feeling baby too. I can't wait for that. He loves feeling our LO's move. He loved our sons!! It's about to get to that fun part in pregnancy!!

Glad you had a good appt. Hope DH can make it to your u/s!

I am exhausted too! I can't get enough sleep. I thought I would be just sailing away with energy right now! Maybe one day!

I've been having horrible insomnia and there are definitely days where I feel like I can literally sleep the entire day. I'm glad to hear your appt. went well.
