Both babies' check ups

Evalee had her 2 year check up a few weeks late due to a scheduling difficulty. As expected, she still absolutely hates the sight of Dr. Moen. In fact, she is now smart enough to recognize the outside of the building the doctor's office is located in. I had to drag her in. She weighed 28 lbs and sized in at 33 inches tall. She still had a little back-up in her right ear, so we were told to keep a close eye on her. Dr. Moen was impressed with her vocabulary skills and letter recognition. Despite her screams and attempts to karate kick the nicest doctor in the world, I was proud of her.

Baby fetus is also making good progress. We had our 16 week check up last week. I continue to feel anxious and uneasy about how the baby is doing because this pregnancy has been so, so different than the first, so I was again ready to get in there and hear that beautiful little heartbeat again. So it only makes sense that I had someone new to the job attempting to find said heartbeat. After 7 solid minutes (and who knew 7 minutes lasted 38 minutes at times) of sweeping and poking and sweeping again, we got about 3 seconds of the baby's heartbeat, which was apparently enough to register 159 beats per minute and satisfy the nurse.  Me, I could have listened for a few more seconds.
