Doctor's Appointment!

I had another prenatal appointment today...I love those.  I'm at the stage where I'm not really rocking a bump (it's more of a gut/fat thing now) and I haven't felt the baby yet (although they say it can start at 16 weeks...which is tomorrow), so there are days when I don't really feel pregnant.  The doctor's appointments are great because they reinforce the fact that I AM pregnant.

Anyway, we got to hear the heartbeat, which was around 140.  The doctor said girls typically have heart rates around that and boys are slower, which contradicts our ultrasound tech's "guess" that it was a boy.  To me, all that means is that we have to wait 3 weeks until our gender scan, but David is FREAKING out.   I think he took the tech's "guess" to heart, so now he's not sure what to think....

However, in three weeks I get to start picking out fabric for the quilt!

In semi-related news, I gained an appropriate amount of weight between my appointments!
I celebrated with a bacon cheeseburger, which was amazing.


  1. Hope in three weeks your little one shows you the goods. I am at 21 weeks and still don't know because he/she stubbornly keeps his or her legs crossed.

    PS This is Clare from GWB in case you hadn't figured that out.

  2. We have a friend who every time they went their dr. said based on h/b their little boy should be a girl....he was born 3 weeks ago and is very definitely boy. Tell David not to freak out yet....and really girls aren't all bad :)
