Baby Update

We had baby appointment # 3 yesterday, and everything is well. My sister went with us and she was soooooo excited to go. I thought that she might not want to go, but when I offered, she jumped on it!
We started off with the NP, and she weighed me, and since we went to NY I have lost three pounds. That's what happens when you go to NY and walk two or more miles a day for six days. Then, she measured my tummy, and I am right where I need to be. Then she got out the doppler and tried to listen to the baby's heartbeat, and we couldn't find the heartbeat, but I was not worried at all. So, after that we went to the sonogram room, and I had my third sonogram. We saw the baby right away and she said the reason we couldn't hear the heartbeat was because the baby was moving around so much. The sonogram was REALLY clear we saw the hand and arm of the baby and then we got a full body profile.
After that we scheduled what the NP called the "real sonogram," and I had ANOTHER blood test.
All in all, it was a really good visit, I am getting to the point that I look forward to my Dr. appointments because I feel like I am getting a real person telling me what is happening with my baby. And, I am always on a high when we leave. Maybe it's because every time I have gone to the dr. I have had a sonogram, and I get to actually see our baby. It is really cool!
Oh, we find out the sex of the baby November 11th . Any guesses on what it is?

Oh, and on a side note, I am 15 weeks, not 14, as they told me before.

Girls are fun. :)

Either way, praying she/he is a healthy baby with all its toes and fingers.

You're going to be amazed at how time flies in the next few months....between Adam's wedding coming up and final preparations for that, then Thanksgiving, and then the Christmas Season. It'll all help make time go by super fast. That's how it was when I was pregnant and due in April.
