Week 18

This afternoon we had another appointment- my 18 week check up. The usual... weight (ick), blood pressure, etc. Of course, the highlight for us is listening to the heartbeat, which the baby doesn't seem to enjoy. He/she must not appreciate the pressure pushing down, because he/she always squirms away and the doctor has to play chase the heartbeat. He/she is very active. Apparently the heartbeat goes up a little every time the baby moves. Since this happens with our baby we were told we "have a very healthy baby." I also had some more blood drawn for the second half of the screening for Down's Syndrome. This time I didn't almost pass out :-)

Tomorrow we are off to Florida to visit my parents for a few days, then off on a western carribean cruise. When we return, we'll have our ultrasound on July 16. Hopefully we'll find out what we are having then. In the meantime, if anyone wants to hazard a guess of what we're having feel free to e-mail us or leave a comment here. We'd love to see whose right!
