What a fun doctor's visit! We got to hear a very strong heartbeat. We can't tell you how many beats per minute, though, because every time the Doppler was put on my stomach the baby kicked hard enough to kick the Doppler off of my stomach! That's the first time kicks were VISIBLE. Anyway, the heartbeat sounded great, but the machine was never on my stomach long enough to get a measurement of beats per minute.
My blood pressure is STILL 100 over 50. It hasn't gone up at all during pregnancy. My doctor thinks this is great. It freaks me out.
My weight is within normal ranges to date (16 pounds in 23 weeks). My stomach is the size of a bowling ball, though, and I have vowed to never take comfortable sleep for granted if I ever experience it again.
We have a much better idea of when Little One will be born. My doctor has a policy to induce if the baby is not born one week after the due date. So, Little One will be here by March 10, 2009 - one way or another!
The next appointment is my glucose screen. I don't think that will be as much fun...
