Today was my 18 week visit to the doctor. I have seen a different doctor each time which has been pretty neat. I really liked the one today. I am now at 123 – altogether I have gained 7 pounds. The nurse and doctor said that was great, since I am about halfway through. Halfway through….hard to believe. It seems like I just accepted the fact that I am pregnant and now I am already halfway through. Woah! Dr. Bindner also measured and said the baby is growing just as it should be at this point. The heart rate at this visit sounded even stronger than the previous two visits. (Click here to listen) The doctor said she wished she could take credit for her skill at finding it, but the heightened pounding sound was due to the baby’s growth. 140 beats per minute is the new number.
The whole pregnancy has been pretty uneventful which to me is fabulous. An uneventful pregnancy and delivery is what I would like everyone to be praying for. I think I may have felt the baby move today also. Kind of twinge sort of feeling in my left side.
June 19th at 3:00 PM is the reveal date. Be praying for a cooperative, outgoing baby who is eager to flash us all.
