Pregnancy Update: 17 weeks

4 Jul

Well we had another doctor’s appointment this Friday past and were told that all of our baby’s genetic tests came back clean (they do blood tests and an ultrasound to test for spina bifida and downs syndrome).  In addition, the doc told me the baby was probably a big one, judging by the size of my uterus.  Yikes!  John was 23″ when he was born, so the news was not all that surprising.  We’ve also been told a couple times that the baby is very active – lots of movement going on in there.  Again, considering his parentage, it’s not all that surprising lol.  Mamma is growing at an acceptable pace and feeling great  still 🙂  Oh, and the chip craving is official over.  It lasted all of two weeks, and I’m now back to my old “don’t want more than 2” attitude.  Though still no real sweet cravings.  Huh.

17 weeks

We find out the sex on July 20th!!  Neither John nor I really care if it’s a boy or a girl, but we’re still very excited to find out 🙂
