17 Weeks Pregnancy Update

Not a whole lot to share. Good Appointment this morning even WITH both kids. Ian was supposed to go to school this morning but the public schools had a 2 hour delay, which delays the start of preschool until 10am. My appointment was at 9:45 so I couldn't drop Ian off. Oh well. Both boys were very well behaved... unlike Aaron LAST time when he was so misbehaved my blood pressure was through the roof!

My blood pressure was a little high for me today, but within the normal range. That's good because after my really high reading at the last appt I was having to take it at home and record the readings. I guess I don't have to do that anymore unless I want to.

I lost a pound. I'm not sure how that is possible with our trip to Florida and the fast foods on the way there and back and my bowl of ice cream for snack every night.

My belly is measuring right on. The baby's heart rate was 150 bpm. We scheduled the "big" ultrasound for March 3rd.

So if you want to "guess" the gender publicly you better do it now! Maybe I'll send a prize to one of the people who guess correctly! Everybody is doing contests these days, right?

Mostly still pudge going on in the belly area, but I took this this morning. 17 weeks exactly.


  1. You look fantastic!!! My vote is for a girl this time around...just a hunch!!

  2. Although I hope you have a girl this time, I have a feeling it's a boy!
