Week 13: Checkup

On Friday I had my second OB appointment. All looked good. I seem to be up 2lbs total since the beginning (for sure all ice cream). I was wondering if the doctor would use the doppler or not to find the heartbeat but he didn't. He went straight to ultrasound! If you are counting, I'm 13 weeks and I've had 6 ultrasounds. It's almost a little embarrassing. Either way, who doesn't want to see their baby on an ultrasound. Baby was so cute again. Sleep away and then rolled over to face his/her back to us. The doctor was laughing. The heartbeat came in at 160 on the ultrasound.

I'm still waiting on my NT scan results. After some lurking on my birth month board, it seems my ultrasound results were normal. I should get my blood test results back this week.

We still are undecided as to find out the baby's sex. Now I'm leaning toward yes. My main reason is I feel like it will help Brooklyn know what to expect. She's old enough and would easily appreciate knowing if she will have a brother or a sister. We have not told her the news yet, but we keep asking her questions. This is what we get from her:

*She knows that newborns cry. She told me they cry because they don't speak words.

* When I asked her what she would do with a newborn baby she told me she would just "snuggle" them.

* In a conversation on where we would put a baby in this small house, her idea was a baby could share a room with her! Her words, "Then it would be like a sleepover every night."

Finally when asked if she wants a brother or a sister, her answers never changes. She wants a brother AND a sister. Um.... you are only getting one little lady! LOL

My level two and gender scan is schedule for February 21st with my next doctor appointment being January 27.

I HAVE ONLY THREE ASS SHOTS LEFT!!!! My ass is killing me, but I can handle three!
