13 Week Appointment

November 9, 2010

So, I had my 13 week appointment today.  Everything went great.  I had originally thought I would see the baby at 13 weeks but then I remembered we turned down some of the elective testing so they wouldn't be doing the sonogram.  We did get to hear the heartbeat.  It did take her about 2 minutes to find it (which oddly enough didn't have me worried).  Once she found it she said it was because I was tall and she was looking too high up.  The heart rate was around 150 which is pretty average.  I think according to the boy/girl heart beat myth that puts it in the girl range but I don't think that is really accurate.

My weight was the same as it was at 9 weeks putting me at negative 5 pounds.  I'm not worried about it and neither is the dr.  She also gave me some medicine for this pesky cold I can't seem to get rid of!

Anyways, we both feel very blessed to have a healthy little one!

Yay! Isn't it wonderful to hear that heartbeat? Our BOY was 165 bpm at 12 weeks... I don't think there's much to the heartbeat wives' tale.

Yes I hear the vision goes back to normal after the baby is born too. I'm trying to hold out until after Liam is born to go back but I am running out of contacts! I also wouldn't use the heartbeat as much of a factor since it's so in the middle. Liam's has been 145-150 every time which depending on which Old Wives Tale you read can mean both boy and girl! At least you'll know soon!
