Gaining Weight




Yesterday was my monthly prenatal appointment with my doctor in B’ham. I’ve gained 3 pounds in the last month, and 8 pounds in total since the pregnancy. Woo hoo!! I was afraid I’d lose weight, or not gain at all, but I’m glad I’m gaining, as that has always been an issue with me since I was a child.

We also got to hear Bean’s heart beat again. It is 160 beats per minute right now. Dr. H had to chase Bean around in my uterus — seems as though s/he was playing hide and seek or something with the heartbeat monitor. It was really cute. We’d hear a “whooosh” on the left side of my tummy, so Dr. H would chase it to the right side of my tummy, and then suddenly — bup-bup bup-bup bup-bup. It was awesome. The highlight of every month, I swear. And what’s more, I brought Jenbug with me so she can hear the heartbeat too, and I also called Dave on the phone at work. He heard the heartbeat for the first time over the phone. It was the most amazing thing ever. So cool.

We’ve got an ultrasound scheduled for next Friday to find out the sex of the baby. This will be very, very exciting! Everyone place your bets and let the guessing game begin! Boy or girl? Girl or boy? What do you think Bean is?
