Prenatal Appointment

Monday, July 02, 2007
Now that the busy time of June has passed, our summer has finally arrived. Yesterday was a lot of fun. Today, I caught up on many chores that had been neglected due to being away so much last month. Weeding, mulching, grocery shopping, dishes, cleaning...

This morning I had a prenatal appointment, and everything looks great. The midwives were able to feel and hear the baby moving. The baby's heartbeat was 144 today. My uterus is just below my belly-button, and, in pregnancy, hits your belly-button by 20 weeks, so I'm right on track. I gained 4 pounds this past month, and have so far gained 6 pounds this pregnancy. I went back and looked at my weight gain w/ my first pregnancy, and I gained about 30 pounds between weeks 20 and 30. I'll be curious to see if I gain as much with this pregnancy. I gained 55 pounds w/ Samuel. Lost 40 of those 55 by 10 days post-partum. Those last 15 pounds hung on, though, for about 8 months. Honestly, I'm not really worried about it. My body will gain what it needs to gain. I'm looking forward to the ultrasound a week from Thursday. Even though we are going to wait to find out the gender, it will be reassuring to me to see that everything is developing normally, and to see the baby again!

Glad to hear everything went well! Can't wait to see whether you have a boy or a girl!
