  • So, today I went in for a regular check (I'm 18 weeks).

    I gained two pounds this month (Damn the nurse for telling me!) Darn that "low fat" Halloween candy!!

    All is well.

    The doc isn't ready to confine me to the constriction/anti-swelling panty hose yet, so I am happy.
    She is not concerned overly about the headaches as long as they go away.

    My U/S is the day before Thanksgiving -- 11/26 @ 11am!!!
    I had to talk her into it, she applied a code to it to get it covered. She thinks gender should be a surprise --
    I think she is nuts. Thankfully, she understands my type A desire to shop and decorate in a gender specific fashion...

    This may be my hardest two week wait ever!!

  • Yay! Glad to hear the dr. appt. went well!

    I'm so excited to hear what you're having! I have to wait till January.
    But I'm right there with you on the shopping and needing to know the gender. Good luck!

  • I'm glad she's going to get you an U/S! A 20 week scan is standard even if you are going to wait to find out the gender at birth!

    2 lbs in a month is right on isn't it? I can't remember if its 1/2 lb or 1 lb a week in the second trimester, but either way you're doing great! I'm so jealous you got to eat Halloween candy! I want candy!!!!!!

  • 2lbs aint nothing!!!
    i got you far beat!

    on the ultrasound!! My OB is the SAME WAY and he actually tells you that he is disappointed in the fact that you want to know the gender before birth.

    I say the fact that these babies come out of such a small area is surprise enough. i love knowing ahead of time.
