Went to the doctor today for a regular baby checkup. All is well!
Size: Approximately the size of a Papya
Heartbeat: 148 beats strong
How I’m feeling: Besides having a cold, I’m definitely feeling better than last pregnancy, but again I think its because I’m striving to work out more. Of course not this week since I’ve been sick. I also don’t really remember that I am pregnant. Weird? The time that I do is when I sit down to eat and need a tv tray and napkin that covers the front of me because I can’t successfully be a clean eater with out it due to my growing belly.
How much weight I’m gaining: HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! LIKE I WOULD SHARE THAT! All I will say however is that I’m doing MUCH better than last pregnancy. And although my spandex-wearing-bike-riding doctor did say “oh ____ lbs gained? I’ll take it” today, which seems good, I’m not so convinced. I know he is a bit mindful of how much weight I am gaining, because lets face it, I NEED to NOT gain a lot of weight. I didn’t lose any from last time, so I have to be on top of my game this time. So I decided that I will track how much I’m eating through a Weight Watchers program. No no no. Don’t worry, I’m not dieting, just putting myself in check.
Gender: Still currently in a sealed envelope tacked to my white board. Unknown. Although Jeff and I are both hoping for another GIRL. But we will certainly love and cherish this baby no matter what.
Names: There has been a girl name that we have been discussing since we first found out we were pregnant. I like the long version, he likes the short nickname of it. After a while we took it off the table. Just the other night, I heard him say “ok, ok, I think I concede. (if its a girl) We can put ___________ back on the table”. This is HUGE. Mostly because we can’t think of ANY other names. Seriously, we are ridiculous. And we don’t have any names for boys either. I think its a mental block.
