Just thought I'd give you all an update.

My level 2 u/s is on Monday and we are hoping to find out the sex. And, I'm being referred to a dr of internal medicine for a cardiac workup because of the bp and pulse spike for no apparent reason. I don't know when that apt. is yet since I have to make it this afternoon (assuming the paperwork gets there LOL).

I'll let you know more when I know more!

BTW, still needing unisom. I tried to go off it again because I was feeling okay and ended up pretty nauseated and unable to eat anything.

Catherine,

Thanks for the update, I've been thinking about you! I'm glad that you got referred for the pulse/bp issue - what did your OB think may be behind it?

Can't wait to hear about your level 2!

I am so glad that they are going to do something about your pulse issue! Let us know what happens and good luck finding out the sex on the baby - I have a second ultrasound scheduled for the 26th - baby did not show themself the first one and it is driving me crazy not knowing!!!

Catherine -
So glad to hear from you. I have been really busy with my life and I don't get to respond to posts as much as I would like. I am excited to know what your U/S will reveal!![:o)] I have my ultrasound on March 17th... Luck of the Irish LOL. I hope baby give us a wide open peek.

Let me know how things are.
Hugs,
Suzanna

Hello ladies...Well, the u/s was today and it is very likely a girl, though harder to tell since there isn't something to see to be sure [;)] You know how that goes! LOL Anyway, everything looks great. My afi (I had to know) was 10.74 cm or so. Not bad, but not as high as this point last time. Oh, as far as early u/s goes I'm almost 18 wks but the baby is already measuring about a week ahead. Still expecting a good sized baby [:)].

I never actually spoke to the OB about the pulse/bp spike. My apt for that is on the 19th in the evening so it'll be a while longer before I know anything. LOL I'll be seeing the same doctor that my 96 y/o Grandmother sees.

So, still haven't gained any weight but not feeling too bad. Everything seems to be going well so far!

Mada, I was sure my DH only produced boys too! As was he! He has 3 boys from his first marriage, then we have a boy together. Well, low and hehold, he is having his first girl at #5!! lol I dont think he knows what to expect at all! I, personally, can not wait to see him with his little princess in his arms! He has already told me that he will ball like a baby when his daughter is born! AHHHH! I will try to get a picture of that! lol
