I went in today for my monthly appointment. The nurse did the normal checks...and GET THIS!! Have not gained ANY weight..and blood pressure...116/60!!! I know I am a little excited, but for someone who always has high bp, it was a sigh of relief. All of my blood work came back normal (24 hr urine, quad screen, iron levels, blood count, etc)! Anywho, the nurse found baby's heartbeat right away, but he/she said, " no way mom, that lady isn't poking me!" and moved all the way to the back and hid really quick! lol The doc came in and asked me if I had any questions, so I asked her if they do a routine 2nd u/s and she said, they don't schedule one unless baby or mom is in distress or they are concerned about something (which everything has gone really well so far), so no more u/s, scheduled one anyway! BUT we have decided we are going to an outside place to get an u/s next week to find out gender..on Thursday! YAY! Oh! and one more thing...she told me that my due date is 09/27! So they moved me up 6 days! That makes me 16 weeks, 5 days today! Movin' right along! (But I am staying with my October girls) Alright, I think that is all I wanted to blabber about! Sorry for keeping you reading (if you made it this far!)

Awe, congrats on a great appointment!

That's a bummer they can't find a "reason" to do the u/s so that your health ins will cover it. I'm lucky because my docs will. I'm happy for you that you'll still be able to go to an outside place and get an u/s done. Can't wait to see what the results are!

I had to do the same thing about the u/s- but mine's not til the 29th!

glad it went so well otherwise! I had BAD high bp during my last pregnancy (at it's highest it was 200/100) so I get excited EVERY time they tell me it's normal!

YAY! I'm glad everything is going well! Bummer about the u/s tho... I wish I could afford an outside u/s, but I'll have to wait until they go my "anatomy" (that's what the doc called it!! LOL) at 20 weeks. KUP!!

Wow, sounds like an awesome appt!!

I'm shocked they don't do a second u/s - good thing you're getting an outside one to find out the gender. Can't wait to hear what you're having!!

Yay!! Sounds like a great appointment! Congrats on your blood pressure... and not gaining any weight (a little jealous here... i think ive gained like 10 pounds already!). Did you try giving an excuse on why you'd need an ultrasound?... my doc put in that I'm anxious (which Im not really even) and that was enough to get it. But Thurs is much closer than scheduling another appointment anyways. So exciting! And woohoo for joining the "surprise! you might have a september baby" chapter of the oct DDC.

Yay for a good appointment.

Do they not do an anotomy scan on everyone?

She said they don't typically do one unless there is something wrong because the insurance won't cover it...bummer!
