16 weeks!

As of Saturday I am officially 16 weeks pregnant! Things seem to be moving along so fast this time around and I can't believe our new little peanut will be here in only 6 more months!

I had another doctors appointment this morning and everything is going smoothly. All the genetic tests we've had done to date have come back negative, baby's heart rate is consistently staying around 155-165 bpm, my blood pressure is great (so maybe I can avoid that nasty hypertension problem this time around), and get this...I haven't gained a single pound!! By this point with Austin, I think I had gained about 5-7 lbs. so I'm hoping that means I'm on track for a 15-20 lb. weight gain instead of the 35-40 lbs. I gained with Austin. I think it's much easier to watch what you eat the second time around because you realize that all that weight doesn't just magically melt off once the baby arrives like it does in celebrity world. In fact, when I got pregnant again I was STILL struggling with those last stubborn 15 lbs. Ehh, the story of my life!

At the end of my appointment I finally got my H1N1 vaccine (mom, I know you'll be proud) since my OBs office had some in stock. It's my first shot since I can't even remember when and I was shocked that it was relatively painless. So, yay for no swine flu!

Anyway, on to the bigger news....we will find out the sex of baby Harris #2 on December 7th at 9:30 am! Only 3 more weeks, I can't believe it!!! I'll be 19 weeks which was the earliest they would let me schedule the ultrasound and I can't wait! I'm so ready to know if Austin is going to have a little brother or a little sister and so is Ryan!

So, with that news, take a look in the right column of the blog to vote in the Baby Harris #2 gender poll!! Can't wait to see what y'all think it is!!

I don't see the baby poll? Start taking name suggestions!! You don't have to tell which one you are actually using, but it's so much fun to look up baby names. :) I've been doing it ever since you told me that yall are pregnant again.

Glad to hear all the good news! That's amazing that you haven't gained a single pound....I'm sure I had gained at least 20 by that time with Tyler!! Sounds like everything is going great! We can't wait to hear the gender on Dec. 7th!!! I voted in the poll.
