Today I had another Doctor’s appointment and heard the sweet sound of baby’s heartbeat. It was a quick appointment and all is well. I am so thankful! I will be 13 weeks on Saturday and I cannot wait to officially turn that 2nd trimester corner! We have a lot to do and being tired all the time really isn’t helping 😉
I will say that I feel pretty great today especially. I wondered how it would be different being pregnant with a toddler running around. And while I have definitely “felt” this pregnancy, I think having Oscar has really helped me not to dwell on every single little thing, which is really nice.
Overall, I just feel more relaxed.
Also, I have felt the baby move! The past week or so I have been having little flutters here and there. I just knew it was the baby but didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want to hear the, oh no it’s too early, it’s probably gas, yadda yadda yadda. So today at the OB I just mentioned it to see what he might say and to my surprise, the Doc said actually, I felt the baby move while I was pushing on your uterus to get the heartbeat so I bet you are feeling it. Yay! I mean, I guess I already knew that really, but it was nice to have a little confirmation!
Next month I will have two appointments. One is a regular one with the lovely glucose test. They suggested that I test twice to be sure I don’t get Gestational Diabetes. Even though I never had it with Oscar, because he was so large and I gained so much, they just want to be sure and so do I. The second appointment is 6 weeks from now and we will have another ultrasound! We should be able to know the gender by then and I am so super excited! So start placing your bets now!
