I'm pregnant again!! I'm due April 1st. I'm hoping for a girl but another boy wouldn't be bad either. I haven't been to the doctor yet. I'm actually going to be going to a new doctor as I was not happy with my last OB/GYN at the end of my pregnancy with Sean. I'm pretty stoked about this new OB too. I probably will only see her once...next week..and then I will see midwives. One of the main reasons I chose this OB is that she works with the midwives at the midwifery center at DePaul Hospital which is where I will be delivering this time. I'm so excited about that. I was worried our insurance wouldn't pay for a midwifery birth center birth but they will since technically the OB is my doctor.

Sean had his 9 month well baby check up today. Our little peanut is 15 lbs 13 oz and 26 in long. His growth has slowed down but the doctor said that that's very common in babies that are becoming mobile...and he's not only crawling but walking too. He should start gaining faster in a few months. They said he seemed very healthy and very advanced...I already knew that. lol We'll be going back right after his first birthday and if his weight levels off they may consider checking his thyroid...but they really don't think there will be a problem because most children with a thyroid problem have their weight level off earlier on .. they told me he was perfectly healthy they gave him 2 shots. He does better than me! Though I did have to hold his arms and legs down this time. He immediately nursed and was ok. He fell asleep in the car (about 9:45) and is still asleep.
