Midwife Appointment

The appointment went great...Manny even asked some questions this time LOL He's so shy sometimes :)  Uterus is measuring just right and baby's heartbeat sounded wonderful!!  162 bpm...It was so awesome to hear for the first time!  I can't wait until I actually start feeling baby move around...but I still have several weeks for that.  My next appt is in one month...I was told that I need to start gaining more weight now...It's so strange to me to actually have to gain weight, and I really have been trying the past couple of weeks, but it's actually harder than I thought it would be!  I'm sure that soon enough I'll see the scale move on up though.  She said that with my starting weight she would like to see me gain between 25-30 lbs which is a pound a week!  When she said that, she said "because you have 26 weeks to go until your due date" which made me think, and in the grand sheme of things really doesn't seem that long...I didn't realize how quickly time flies! 

It feels just like yesterday when we were anouncing to our families we were pregnant and now I'm already 12 weeks along!  I am really enjoying this journey so far, even with the sickness and nausea.  I am already so proud of how strong my little one is growing!  I can't wat until we know the sex though so we can name and start the fun stff...shopping for baby!!! :)


  1. This is so exciting. And well, I can't help to think, that this is my little Vicki, that was only 2 when I first met you.


  2. Hey Vicki! I rarely look at facebook, but I did today and found your blog through it - hope that's okay! Congratulations!! That morning sickness thing is no fun - I'm sorry that you're going through it. My mom would always tell me it's a good sign, though :) I'm excited for you, good luck with everything! - Carolyn
