On Wed (11/12) I had my 4th OB appt and Thurs I turned 17 wks. Everything is going very well so far. My baby's heart rate was 148 bpm and Dr. F found it right away when she stuck the doppler on. I have gained 4 lbs so I am now up to 110 lbs. My last appt I hadn't gained or lost so I figure I am going to be on the gaining end from now on. I declined the quad screening. I had it done w/ Kyndra but I don't want it this time. I wasn't tested for anything this time around except for the AIDS blood test. I think that's always a good idea for me since I work at a hospital and can be exposed to blood borne pathogens. Of course I do not have AIDS-the test was negative and I had that done at my 1st appt. I haven't felt any movement but I'm sure that will be happening very soon! The good news is my appetite is back for the most part so that's prolly why I gained some weight. Anthony and I have decided on a name for our lil girl-Carleigh McKenna. We decided last night. We had already picked out Carleigh from our list we had made and we just needed to decide what her middle name would be. I had made a list of like 20 middle names for Anthony to pick from and then going thru the list once he narrowed it down to 8. Then he said that McKenna was the name he liked the most so it was final!
