We had our 17 week check-up today and everything went great. The heart beat was much easier to find this time, immediately when the nurse put the machine to my belly a healthy 156 heart rate came through. Unfortunately, I am coming down with something so I couldn't get my flu shot but we did get to set up our Gender Ultrasound. The best part....we will find out if Hamlet is a he or she on John's birthday, October 6. Stay tuned for the big reveal.
Here is my 17 week photo, this week we are the size of an onion (or according to another website a Sweet Potato), about 5.1 inches and 5.9 ounces. It is also getting more and more often that I feel little kicks. I even purchased my first pair of maternity work pants (thanks Megan for the moral support).
We have the nursery all cleaned out and ready to start decorating but we are going to wait until we find out the gender. We have lots of ideas for our little one's new room
