Friday's Doctor Appointment

Well, we are well on our way with this pregnancy, and I am currently 16 weeks 3 days pregnant. Friday's doctors appointment went great!! I got to hear the heartbeat, which was 155, very healthy & strong! Blood pressure was wonderful and I had gained 4 lbs since my last appointment in February. If I continue to gain like I have been then we are looking at about 35 lbs total that I will gain. I would be okay with that. My goal is no more than 40, but realistically I'd like to keep it no more than 35. I also had to do MORE blood work. This caught me by surprise just because I thought maybe I'd get a break at this appointment, but she promised me that my next appointment there would be no blood work done. Friday's blood work was to check for spinal deficiencies and my next blood work will be done at 24 weeks.

Okay, so I know everyone is waiting for an answer to the BIG question....."WHEN DO WE GET TO FIND OUT THE SEX?" Welllll.....my next regular appointment is scheduled for April 10th (4 weeks), BUT she offered if I would like to, to come back in just 2 weeks to find out the sex of the baby!!!!! WOOOHOOOO!!! March 26th, here we come!!!!!! BOY or GIRL, that is the question!?!?! Are your predictions right or wrong? We will soon find out next Thursday!

How exciting!! Just two weeks and you will know for sure! What are you leaning towards? Any feelings one way or the other? You haven't really mentioned any sickness, so I am thinking maybe a little boy?!
