New Doc! and update.

I had my first appointment with my new doc last week, Thursday to be exact. There's been a lot going on so I didn't get to update since then, sorry to whomever out there in cyberspace reads my blog!

It's a two-dr practice, male and female, and I saw the lady dr first. She's very young, but I still felt like a 13-yr-old next to her, lol. The nurse/assistant/I'm not sure what kind of degree she has was very very nice, talkative. It was much different from my old practice. The building is less modern, but the people make up for it. They explained everything, which made hubs very happy, because he hated the old dr's bedside manner - or lack thereof. Then we went into lady dr's office and had a little meeting where we went over all my info. She said everything looked good, we went back and listened to the hb (140), she measured me (I think, I was looking at a poster of babies that they put on the ceiling), and that was about it. Their scale is actually comparable to mine at home, so that will be a good indicator. I think my updates are going to have to come on Mondays now though, since my due date is now officially (again) September 25th. The old dr had my dates wrong...for what reason, I'm not sure.

So, here you go!

How far along? 17 weeks

Maternity clothes? went to Motherhood this weekend, spent lots of money. It was awesome. I heart stretchy jeans.
Stretch marks? apparently, they are multiplying...on my back. yeah, back.
Sleep: the usual. I can remember vaguely when I wake up and have to flip sides, but that's all.
Best moment this week: when I complained to hubs that I couldn't bring up my knee anymore when I put my socks on, because it feels like "there's something there" and he said, yeah, a baby!
Movement: nope.
Food cravings: anything apple, and of course, chinese.
Gender: I'm thinking boy.

Belly Button in or out? about the same, still in but threatening to flatten out.

Weekly Wisdom: it is ok to only care about yourself and your baby right now.
Milestones: hearing the hb again.
