15.5 week check up!

I went in for my 15 week check up and things are still looking great! The doctor says I am doing well, he listened for the heartbeat and found it right away ( it is so amazing to hear the heartbeat of a little person inside of you, it is so crazy! ), the heart rate was at 160 beats per minute which is healthy! I also went in for my blood work for the alpha fetal protein test that we chose to do. We are hoping to hear healthy results a week from now, keep your fingers crossed for us! And SO EXCITING.... we got to set the date for our ultrasound appointment when we find out what we are having!!! I was expecting it to be the middle to the end of February but it is going to be on Friday Feb 6!!!! SO SOON!!!! I will be one day away from 18 weeks then! We can't wait to find out if we are having a little Kip III or Brooke!!! YEAH!!!! So keep your eyes open around then. I am sure I will post it that night!

YAY! I can't wait to find out! That's awesome!
And I'm not sure how you missed that we were having another girl...although I'm not 100% convinced since the umbilical cord was between her legs the entire time! Oh well - we'll see with my late pregnancy ultrasound!
Keep us informed!

Cute names by the way! You are way more patient than I...I went at 15 weeks to an ultrasound place and paid $25 to find out what we were having...I can never wait! I am glad that everything is going well!

I am glad to hear everything is going well with you and the baby! Today I went shopping and got Rylee 9 months clothes. It flys by so fast. I saw the tiny new born clothes and was like..ohhhhh. I miss Rylee being so little. However she is getting to be so much fun. I love the names, in fact, the past few weeks I have been telling Chris that I liked the name Brooke. Hopefully in a few years we will have a boy and be done. Anyways, I am glad everything is going well for you guys!

You have no idea how excited I am....for you and for myself! It's silly, I know, but I almost feel like I am reliving the excitement of being prego through you (without actually having to be the prego one!)
I am thrilled....and the next two weeks until then will fly by!

I can't believe it's almost time to find out what you're having. Matthew and I love the name Brook, it's so cute. Maybe you should do Brroklyn, that's your middle name right? Lynn? Anyways, you guys do some fun stuff. I'm glad you still get to be so active being prego and all!
