I was sent over to the lab for blood work to test for genetic conditions or birth defects. The results will be back in about a week. These tests were optional but I think it's important to check. My doctor also had me set up my next ultrasound which will be done on April 2nd. I will then be 22 weeks and 4 days along. I was sort of bummed because I was hoping they would do the ultrasound sooner ( like at 20 weeks which is less than a week and a half away) but she just wanted to do it the same day as my next prenatal appointment which is four weeks away. I am sure the days will fly by as they have been up to this point.
I am excited to find out if we are having a boy or girl. I think it would be awesome to have a little boy so my hubby has a little man to teach golf to, play in the dirt with and all the other wonderful manly things. If we have a boy we already have a name picked out. If we have a girl, no name has been decided as of yet but she will have TONS of clothes to wear that big sister Mollie barely wore (some never worn). I went way overboard buying clothes for her. I have learned my lesson. Babies grow way to fast and Mollie didn't wear half of things I bought because she grew out of sizes so quickly.
Watermelon, peanut butter/honey on whole wheat toast, homemade chicken noodle soup and extra sharp cheddar cheese.
Approximately 5.5" long.
I bought a fetal doppler heart monitor online for about $50. I love having it to listen to the baby's heart beat and I wish I would have bought one during my first pregnancy.
