My last doctors appointment was just yesterday afternoon. I will be 17 weeks tomorrow, but it was technically a 16 week checkup.
The heart rate this time was back down to 140. I have a feeling it's a BOY! Of course, you never really can tell...the heart rate has changed dramatically going from 135 to 175 & back & forth & so on...so I guess I will just have to wait until July 26th when we are scheduled to find out the gender.
I am really excited to know since I am stuck on which room to make into the nursery. Once that's determined, we can finally start shopping & decorating. So far I have done absolutely nothing to get ready for a baby.
Work has been good & I'm not as tired anymore, but sitting for hours & hours a day has its set backs. I try to run little errands every now & then so I can get out & walk but it hasn't been easy. I hate to think what I will feel like in November!
My appetite was crazy to begin with & I was hungry ALL the time, then it slacked off for a few weeks as I was going into my second trimester. Just recently, it has kicked back in full force. I have not had any major cravings, but for the first time lastnight, I asked Matt to go get me an oreo milkshake from Jacks! I have never really EVER finished a whole milkshake...but before I knew it, I was at the bottom of the cup & kinda wished I had MORE!
For now, this is what I look like via phone pictures. I am trying to take photos every 2 weeks on my good camera, but these are so much easier & faster to transfer.
