4th month Dr. Appointment

Tonight was another doctor's appointment. We found out I still haven't gained any weight, which is really surprising to me because I definitely have a baby belly at this point. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat together for the first time, which was exciting. It was beating very strong and on the high end of normal at 169 beats per minute (which yes Grandma Kershaw, helps your vote on the sex of the baby in the old wives' tale department).

The most exciting thing we did was schedule the next sonnogram, funny enough. On November 2nd, if the baby cooperates, we shall find out if it is a boy or a girl. I will be 18 weeks and 1 day pregnant. I'm trying not to get too excited about it, in case the baby has its legs crossed or something else odd happens and we can't find out... but the excitement is still bubbling a bit beneath the surface.

I know I need to document a picture of the very beginnings of the baby bump -- hopefully I will remember to ask Travis to take a picture for me this weekend so I can post it for everyone!

  1. Alex had his legs crossed, so we wouldn't have been able to tell if we wanted to. Alex's heartbeat was all over the place, so I don't know how much I'd rely on that. I'm still voting girl though.
    Also it was about half way before I started gaining weight, just remember the less you gain the less to lose later!! Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!!
