17 weeks 1 day today!! Above is my belly picture from today and my belly picture from 11 weeks. There is a big difference and I know I'm only going to keep growing. Today I have my 17 week appointment. I will get to schedule my next ultrasound today. I am hoping it is in two weeks or so because I cannot wait to find out what we are having.
I decided to buy a doppler online so Andrew and I could listen to baby's heartbeat at home. Of course, it was broken so we will have to exchange it for a new one. I did manage to get it to work for just a minute this morning and I heard the baby's heartbeat for about a minute. It was beating at 147 BPM which seems very boyish to me.
How far along? 17 weeks 1 day!

Maternity clothes? Just pants still and a few tighter shirts.
