17 weeks

So I'm officially 17 weeks along today.  No there is nothing special about the number 17 it just occured to me that time is going quicker than I thought it would.  I'm not complaining!  February is just around the corner.  I had a doctors appointment on Wednesday - very uneventful.  Baby is healthy, heart is loud and clear, and though my BP was up a bit, my doctor is not concerned as I was feeling a little "under the weather" that day.

I scheduled the big sonogram for October 15th...yes, on my birthday!  I go in at 9:00 in the morning and then have a doctor's checkup right afterward.  Any guesses on what it will be?  I have a feeling boy - not really any particular reason but it just seems that way.  My other preggo friends that are due close to me in February are already finding out!  So far one is having a girl and the other finds out next week.  So excited either way.  I can't wait to start calling him/her a real name and start planning for their arrival.
