17 weeks all ready!

{15 weeks}

{16 weeks}

{17 weeks and yes, Carter is holding his belly too}

I had my 16 week appointment last Thursday.  Nothing too eventful.  When the nurse checked the heartbeat with the doppler she said, do you hear all that noise?  The baby must have been moving around like crazy, she had a hard time getting a read.  Then she said "they are really moving around." Both Keith and I were thinking "they" - but we think she just meant "they" as in babies at this stage.  So then I thought, oh boy, we have another Dylan on our hands!  When I was pregnant with the boys, Dylan was always on the go making so much more movement than Carter.  True to this day, that kid just has more energy!

Only big complaints for me at this stage are headaches and some back pain, I'm going to give a chiropractor a try next week.  We'll see if that helps.  Otherwise, not feeling too bad and growing plenty!
Our next appointment will be Feb 9th and this is the big ultrasound appointment!  With the boys it was so much fun having all the ultrasounds, this time they just do them early and then this one as long as all is good.  You would think they would want to check in sooner to make sure all is growing / developing right, but what do I know:)  So I have decided for right now I will have them right down the sex and put it in an envelope for us and then we can decide how we want to find out.  I actually did this before with the boys, but I gave that to my brother, so he was the only one who knew we were having boys the entire time.

Otherwise, I would say I'm not too prepared this round!  I'll probably give it a month or two before I start digging out all the baby gear and going through all the totes.

We also found out last week that we are going to a gap between when I go back to work and there is an opening at our daycare, so I'm on the hunt for a solution there.  I started to explore the nanny route and would love that for a few months actually, but I think it will just be way too expensive.  If we had the boys home too it would be OK, but I don't want to pull them out of school.  So I would prefer a home in Polk City or I could do Ankeny too.  If you have any suggestions, I would take them.

Dylan was doing all that moving because he was trying to get Carter off his head! Mom :)
