17 Weeks Pregnant

I’m 17 weeks pregnant today. Crazy! My appointment went really good yesterday. The practice I go to is at a hospital called Holy Spirit. It’s a catholic hospital but very good doctors and care. I did not know that when I made my first appointment with them a few months back. They only thing they told me on the phone was that they did not prescribe artificial birth control. I was like ok no big deal cuz after this baby I’m getting my tubes tied. Well come to find out it’s because of it being a catholic practice. They will not even tie my tubes for me. SO Larkin is going to be going for the snip snip after the baby is born. Lucky him! Anyway my reason for telling you all this is yesterday after my DR did my exam he said to me that he is a Christian and it is practice of his that he likes to pray with expecting mothers over their womb and baby. I was blown away!!! It was so awesome I could have bawled. I want him to deliver the baby so bad. He was so nice and corrected my due date because they had it wrong because of leap year. He even told me when to expect my c-section. He told me that he was in 100% agreement with me with having another section. I have only gained 4 lbs my entire pregnancy so far so he was pleased with that. So my due date is April 3rd and my estimated section date is March 25th. The baby's heart rate is 150 and my belly is measuring 15 inches. I don’t remember them doing that with Mitch. Ok sorry for the LONG story!! I know you were just expecting a simple update. My sex of the baby appointment is on Friday, November 23rd at 3pm. That is the day after Thanksgiving so I know the time will go fast leading up to that. I'm so excited!!!

I'm so glad things are going well! Your doctor sounds great. You need to have that c-section scheduled for March 24th though, thats my mom's and my great grandmother's birthday so its the perfect day to be born ;)

Wow what a cool doctor! I think every doctor should do that! I am glad everything is going well with your pregnancy and I can't wait to hear what you are having. I am hopeing for a girl for you. But I know you will be happy with either. I just think a girl will be spoiled to death with being the only one in both families! LOL
