Baby Stuff

I got to hear my baby's heartbeat again today.  :)  I don't think I'll ever get tired of that!  The heart rate was 153 beats per minute. 

(8/13/10 - 166bpm; 9/9/10 - 163bpm; 9/13/10 - 155bpm)

I gained a *modest* 3 pounds in the last 4 weeks.  Which puts me at one pound over my pre-pregnancy weight.  My doctor said it was a good weight gain.

My stomach measured 17 inches.  It was 13 inches 4 weeks ago.  The baby belly is definitely making itself known!

Let's see, what else?  She told me to get the flu shot.  (I'm not going to.)  She told me to sign up for a childbirth class.  (No, thank you.)  She told me to schedule my gender-identifying ultrasound.  (We've decided not to find out the gender.)

JUST KIDDING!  (Well, about the gender atleast!)

My 20 week ultrasound will be Friday, October 22 at 11am.  I'll be 19 weeks and 2 days.  We are so excited to find out if we're having a boy or a girl!!  Then we'll officially be picking a name, and registering too!

Tomorrow I'll be 18 weeks!!!

Is it bad if my friend and I have a competition to see who is right when it comes to gender? lol I have three pregnant friends so far and I got the first one wrong. We're waiting to see what you are having! Keep us posted. So glad that everything is going well for you and baby Nuz.
