Baby Bump: 17 weeks
(So, it isn’t too much bigger than when I postedÂ this…And you may still have to look really, really close…
But, baby is growing, and making his/her presence known!)
I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday to check on the little one, listen to the heartbeat, and generally make sure everything was going well.
They spent the entire appointment telling me, “Everything looks great!” Â (Except that I have low blood-pressure…but, apparently, that is a good thing.)
Then they hand me a stack of paperwork with this explanation…
“We’re sending you to a high-risk doctor for an ultrasound.”
Wait, what?!Â I thought everything looked great?
Ohhh, I shouldn’t worry… You send allÂ of your patients to this doctor… High-risk or not…
Um, could you, maybe, have started with that piece of information???
I have started breathing again, and I think my heart has finally resumed its normal rhythm…but, I do think my blood pressure jumped up a few points for a little while!
Bottom line: Â Everything really is fine. Â I am notÂ being classified as high-risk. Â And, it really is good news!Â This appointment willÂ simply be the normal 20-week ultrasound: to check the heart and other organs, size, and confirm baby’s estimated due date (February 6th!).
Oh…and we will alsoÂ get to find out if baby is a boy or a girl!!!
We have received several “predictions” from friends. Â And, so far, everyone seems pretty evenly split… Â I have my own suspicions on what baby will turn out to be…
But, I’m curious. Â What do you all think? Â Will baby’s room be pinkÂ or blue? Â Post your guesses in the comments.
Lord-willing, we will know the answer in just a few weeks!! Â (Yes, I am more than just a little anxious to find out. Â And, no I do not want to be “surprised” when baby arrives.)
