melann13 did you make that smoothie yourself? I love smoothies but can't drink shop brought ones due to most containing banana and I'm allergic to it. As for the one you made I will have to try in after this pregnancy ends as OH is allergic to nuts so the means no coconut Its been highly annoying not being able to have nuts as my favourite cake is coffee and walnut and been craving big bags on honey roasted peanuts.

Anyway only 21 weeks to go. 6 days until we find out the gender and if anything is wrong. Getting excited now

@mummy2o Happy 19 weeks! The countdown is on!! I'm sure you are so excited for the scan! Do you know how you'll announce it to others yet?

@omgbaby I hate when it doesn't take me to the new posts. Do you have the "view first unread" thing in the top left corner of the thread? That usually works for me except on a couple journals I read. I hope it helps!

@mummy2o- I did make it myself. It think it's called "Popeye went to Thailand" I found it online. 1 cup spinach, 1 cup frozen mango, 1Tbsp mint leaves, 1 tsp fresh ginger, 1/2 cup light coconut milk and 1/2 cup water. I use the Silk brand coconut milk by the regular milk which is only 80 calories per serving and has lots of iron, so I just used 1cup of that and no water. I think the recipe is referring to the canned kind in the Asian food aisle which is thicker.

It's good for folate and iron which is why I went for it.

@melann..wahoooooo!!!!! Omg congrats!!!!!

Hey ladies. Had my scan. Everything went amazing. They would NOT tell me what it is (I assumed that) but they were able to tell gender. So party is still a go! Hahaha. It was kinda neat. The first technician it was her first day. So after she was done. Her boss came in...the diagnostician to runs the place and she went over all her pictures and they made me their guinea pig. So I got to sit there and watch baby while they reviewed all kinda of stuff. She also got immaculate photos because....she's the one who reviews them!! I got to hear them talk about my baby and it's heart and the chambers and how "perfect" things were....it was awesome!!!!!! We got to see baby waving and rubbing its eyes..it was a beautiful sight!

So I go Thursday to my dr to find out the gender and then I'm taking that straight to the cake place....I feel like that drive from the dr to cake place will be torture!!! Lmao. That paper will burn my fingers!!!

Here is perfect Baby Z!

@Chulie, that's amazing!! Doesn't it feel like a HUGE weight off your shoulders? I also loved hearing the tech talk about how perfect everything was. I don't know how much they think about each word they choose, but us prego people hang on to their words like lifelines.

Oh! And for anyone who hasn't taken the 1hr glucose test yet, the lab tech told me that while I wasn't given any diet directions for the 1hr test, they used to have people fast for 2-3 hours before and ever since they quit that they get a lot more positives. You can still eat before, but avoid carbs and any caffeine (even the little bit we're allowed to drink) just for those couple hours as it can artificially elevate your numbers.
