Appt with a h/b

We had another appt today. We got to actually HEAR the h/b on the doppler and let me tell you, that was the most amazing sound I think I have ever heard! Olive's heart was pounding away at around 160. My doc said he wasn't going to take any guesses but if we listened to old wives it will be a girl. We'll see I guess ;-)
I'm down 2 lbs since the last appt, probably from all the puking I have been doing. I was just glad I didn't gain a ton, since I feel like I am eating all the time.
Not too much else to update on. The pain in my side that is reminiscent of O pain he thinks is ligament pain and he says still not to worry about postBD spotting (so I'm trying not to).
Our next appt is set for 4/20 and the big u/s is set for 5/22- so much for his letting us get another u/s at 16wks I guess. Maybe he forgot he said we could do that? Oh well. I'm just going to keep putting all this in God's hands, since I have no control over any of it anyway. ;-)

That's so cool that you are hearing the heartbeat. I can't wait, but I have no clue when we'll hear ours.

I hope you stop being sick ASAP, and Batman too!

PS. My OB said not to worry about post BD spotting either. At my pelvic exam he said I have a ton of blood vessels close to the surface on my cervix. But, that it looks very healthy.

oooh yeh for a HB. I hope we get to listen to the baby at Monday's aptmt.

And I'm jealous you got to schedule your next 2 aptmts. I always want to schedule more than 1 ahead of time, esp the gender one!
YEAH! Hope dh gets better soon!

Hey! I found you through Adair. Don't worry about the loss poundage. I threw up for 9 months straight...including the day I delievered and really didn't gain much weight. As long as that hearbeat is good everything's great. Congradulations!
