Doctor Visit

I went to the doctor again yesterday...

We are 16 1/2 weeks along....wow, 4 months! Just today someone mentioned that I was almost halfway there. That's a very interesting thought. It still feels like it's crawling by...don't get me wrong, I don't want to wish it away or rush it along, but it just seems like it's taking forever!

OK, doctor statistics so far:

16 weeks, 3 days
5 pounds gained
150 heartbeat
(178 last time)

That's about it. We talked about the flu...I'm getting a flu shot from the school system and the doctor's office should have the H1N1 vaccine within a week or two. They're going to start witht he 3rd trimester patients, then branch out to 2nd trimester. She hopes to get me in within that time.
We scheduled our next appointment...4 weeks! Such a long time, and especially this time since our next appointment is a BIG one! Our ultrasound!!! She wouldn't let me come in early, though it would be equally great between 18 & 20 weeks. She's making me wait until 20 weeks for our next doc visit and the ultrasound. TORTURE! Just tell me already! I can't wait to start picking things out and buying stuff (although I'm sure Ant can wait!). Our appointment is not until November 12....forever away!
We'll keep our fingers crossed!
Also...a shout out to Tori for going with me to the doctor yesterday. If you didn't know, Tori's a nursing student at Lenoir-Rhyne and I'm her "pregnant guinnea pig" so to speak and she's doing a report on me and Anthony. Kinda fun if you ask me! Anyway, it was her first time hearing a baby's heartbeat and she thought it was super cool. Which it totally is. Oh yeah, and Tori is a super sweet girl and a very good friend! So thanks, Tori. It's so nice not to go alone!
