19 Days and Counting!!!

We had our monthly appointment today, we are 15 weeks and 2 days - all is well with Baby GB! I got to hear the heartbeat again and it was a strong 140 beats per minute!

If you remember from my last post, I had some questions for Dr. C, for the most part I got them all answered.

As far as the quad screening, Dr. C told me that since both Mr. GB and I are healthy and have no history in our family that should alert us to need these tests that it was completely up to us. We decided we'd not be electing to have these tests done because at this point we're in it for the long haul regardless of what it would or wouldn't have found.

I found out which hospital we'd be delivering in (very happy with the outcome!) and found out they offer a childbirth class, among other classes, which include a grand tour of the place. I think I'll be scheduling this after the hustle and bustle of the holidays subsides and around 30 weeks.

I also... yes... got a flu shot. Contrary to everything I've been saying for the last 3 months, Dr. C talked me into it. Actually, she had a very sneaky way of telling me that I was getting one after our consultation. I walked out asking myself if I had said yes or if I had just been bamboozled?! Anyway, in 3-4 weeks apparently the H1N1 vaccine will be available and I have a feeling I'll leave my 19 week appointment feeling a little bamboozled as well?!

And last but not least... Dr. C scheduled the BIG ULTRASOUND!!! So... in 19 days, as long as Baby GB cooperates, we'll know if we are:

Team Pink or Team Blue!!!

What's your vote???? :)
