Today I had my doctor's appointment. Everything went great--I'm still pregnant! (In case y'all just thought I was fat!) LOL! He said that the heartbeat was nice and strong (and still only one in there) and "in the girl range" (I know it's not an exact science and he said that too but he also said that in all the years he's been doing this it's usually right on.) We will of course be happy with girl or boy and will find out for sure in December. The prospect of us having another girl is less than thrilling to some people but Jason & I know that this baby is a miracle that we were not sure we'd have and are totally excited with whatever comes our way. As he was poking and prodding on my belly to find the heartbeat I felt distinct movement in there. I've been feeling little pokes every now and then but since it's early no one believes me! LOL! I KNOW I felt it today. Wouldn't you kick and squirm if someone was smooshing down on you? He also said that my uterus measures a bit larger than 12 weeks (I guess that's what he was feeling for while squashing my stomach down?). When we went in the first time I told them 2 different dates (about 4 weeks apart) and it's totally possible that I'm actually 16 weeks instead of 12 (not as likely but still a possibility) but he said we'd check it out more next time. I gained a bit more weight than I thought but he said that it's right on target for 2nd pregnancies. I'm sure it's got something to do with the peanut butter sandwiches I eat at 3 am every night!
