    For some reason I think we are having a boy :) Either way I cannot wait to find out!! I was reading a magazine at the DR yesterday and saw an ad for an at home gender predictor - has anyone heard of this?? Wonder if its just a novelty I am tempted to get it!!

      I know your anxious to find out but I think you should wait and not even waste your money on that. I know your excited and all I was the same way with all of mine, but don't you want to wait for the ultrasound and actually see it for youself? Because if that test tells you one thing and you go for your ultrasound thinking one way and the Tech says another you may be disappointed. And if you REALLY want to get it I suggest you do a google search for some reviews and not just the testimonials on that site.

        Oh Congrats Kat!!! I know you have been trying. I guess the TCCer's helped. Your fun is just beginning...

        Yari and Jen, The big U/S is so exciting...

        Bisha, that is scary. I had it happen on Tuesday myself. They told me to lie down on my left side and drink a can of soda and the Kung Fo Fighting has begun all over again. I guess she was just tired...

        I have another U/S and my glucose test on the 6th of April. Hopefully the Placenta is moving out of the way. It makes hubby a nervous wreck.

          Happy Friday ladies :)
          I just did the glucose test they say it takes a week for the results - the drink was not as bad as I thought it would be which was a nice surprise!! Also cystic fibrosis test too - my sister found out she was a carrier when she got prego a few years back - 2-3 weeks for those results!! Just heard from the specialist I had to see for Downs/Trisomy and we are NEGATIVE (1 in 10,000 chance)

            Congrats Jenn, that is great news.

            My DH and I saw a genetic counseler last month and did my first trimester screening. All went well, and my results were excellent. I was scared to speak with the counseler, but so happy we went. I was able to get a lot of information and they set me up with an extra ultrasound, which is always cool!!

            We both feel that it's a boy. BUT you just never know. I will be happy with either, Brian really wants a boy. Time will tell!

                  Doing well; deffinitely better this week then last! Had an appointment this morning. Nothing too exciting. Just the usual weight, pee, heart beat, fundal height. I can't believe I'm going every 2 weeks now and I really can't believe I'm 30 weeks already! Time is just flying!!!!

                    I'm doing great. I have to go to a breast surgeon tomorrow because I have breast tissue under my arm I want to get removed. TMI to share!!! But I will let you everyone know how it goes. Not fun at all. I go in another 2 weeks for my regualar appt and then start going every 2 weeks after that. Time is definitely flying.

                      Glad to hear everyone is doing well!

                      Angel- good luck at the surgeon's appt!

                      All is good on my side! I had an appt yesterday and it was pretty quick. Just the regular urine, weight, and blood pressure check up. Then, my doc did an ultrasound. Our baby reconfirmed to be a boy instantly when we saw the picture. He's so cute, he was just bouncing around in there. His kicks are starting to feel a bit stronger and I'm loving it, but my poor DH still hasn't been able to feel anything! I know he gets sad about it, but our doc said around 22 weeks we both should be able to feel his movement more frequently and stronger, so we'll see.

                      I have a question for you all- Do any of you wear contacts? Have you had any problems with them since you have been pregnant? In to my 3rd month, my eyes began to get very itchy and dry, making my contacts very blurry and difficult to see with. The doc said it was a common side effect because of the extra blood flow in the body. I was just wondering if any of you were having to use eye drops or anything else to help during the day to help you see? I've been using Visine for Contacts, but it hasn't really helped me much.
