I'm a bit late and haven't read the whole thread, but jumping in anyway.

I'm starting to feel anxious/nervous/worried that I haven't had a mw appointment since week 13. I currently visiting family since DH is deployed and won't be back to our home until I'm week 23. It just seem so long to go without an appointment.
Hopefully, I'm just being anxious and at least I have my 20 wk ultrasound to look forward to.
If it makes you feel any better, I'm 20 weeks and haven't had a single prenatal appointment, yet. I did stop in to chat with my mw (also a friend) for a few minutes and drop off a few things and pick up our contract, and we took a sneak listen with the doppler for a few minutes. So, I got to hear baby's heartbeat. I was getting a little worried because I haven't felt much movement... just every once in awhile. But, the heartbeat was fine. Baby just has lots of room to move around (as this is my 4th pg and uterus gets stretchy!). I have my first official mw appoinment next week.
Now that the huge event I was planning is OVER, I might actually have some time to start knitting for baby. I have some wool I'm planning to use for longies. I also picked up some wool soakers in nb/s made by a friend for a really reasonable price, so I feel like I've done SOME thinking about this new baby.
I still have really long lists of potential baby names, and dh is no help at all as he is not ready to think about it... and says he just prefers to have veto power. I mean, I like not getting into big name battles with him... but a little more input than "that's not bad, we can go with that" would be nice. I'd like to think he actually LIKES our kids names, and not just tolerates them.
