16 weeks, CHECK!

Had my OB appointment today and everything was great! In fact, the appointment only took about 5 minutes! My blood pressure was great 103/65, I gained 7 lbs. this month, YIKES!! Dr. said that was fine though. Babies heart rate was 150 bpm. After my appointment I went up to the lab to get some blood drawn for the quad screen, and that was it!

My next appointment is April 14th, and that's when we find out the sex and have the big ultrasound! I asked if we could do it the week before so Drew could be there but she said she'd rather wait until that week so that's kind of a bummer. I'm going to take the video camera and record the ultrasound if I can get the right angle though so everyone can see it! That's the plan anyway.

Taylor is getting 4 more teeth in, her canines, and it's taking a toll on her. She's been a crab the last couple of days and her nose is running like a seive. Her appetite is down a little as well, I'm sure her mouth is hurting her. She was eating some Gerber Puffs today and chewed on a couple and started crying. She was just standing there so I can only imagine it was her mouth. I gave her some tylenol and that seemed to help.

Last night she went to bed at 8pm and didn't wake up this morning until 11!! I couldn't believe it (I was at the OB and Drew texted me to tell me she just woke up). I was sure it was going to mess up her schedule but she went down for a nap at her regular time, and hit bed at normal time again. Amazing!

So, we're off to OKC tomorrow morning, then Omaha on Wednesday. I may or may not have internet access along the way, but I'll have my phone on me if you need to get in touch or want to check in!

Taking my camera, so hopefully I have lots of pics to share when I get back!
