3/2/12 Marks 16 weeks :)

Happy 16 weeks baby! Today I had my Triple Screen blood work, should hear back in a few days. Dr Wingo said it usually gives a lot of false negatives, so I am not even sure why they bother with it?! If our baby does have DS or SB, what of it? We will still love our sweet baby no matter what!! Today the heartbeat was about 150. Took a few minutes to hear a steady beat. When the Dr first found it, the baby moved so he had to keep searching. Stubborn already :) My blood pressure was great today, 127/74. Usually my top is around 133, bottom is about average for me, so I guess this baby is doing some good for me that way. I've gained 9 lbs since 10wks. I am not happy with that. But whatever. I am just going to have to be extra careful and make sure I don't snack just to snack!
My next Appointment is March 29th, 19w6d, where I will have an ultrasound then meet with my OB. I am going to an outside source for a FREE ultrasound on March 19th, 18w3d. It's being offered at Vol State so that Ultrasound Tech students can get practice on real people. I am just excited to see how much the baby has grown compared to 8w5d when we got to see last!
