The 12th was our second doctor's visit with our new baby. We were excited to be able to hear the heartbeat. The doctor found it right away but our little baby wanted nothing to do with it and kept swimming away. He said that it sounded great but he couldn't get a reading on it, so he wanted to do an ultrasound to get the number for his records. It was 162 beats per minute.
My doctor also said he was disappointed in the fact that I had lost six pounds that month. He even asked Patrick and me if I was eating! Of course I am eating! If I don't I get sick! So hopefully I will have gained some weight for my next appointment.
Everything else went great. I have no complications so far and everything is measuring right on.
Here are some of the pictures they gave us. You can see the head on the left side. The baby is looking right at you. You can also see their little arm and leg buds.
Our doctor said they might be able to tell the sex of the baby but our ultrasound tech didn't even bother looking. :(
We have another ultrasound scheduled for March 10th to find out the sex! We are pretty excited. I think its a boy; Patrick isn't sure. Do you have any guesses? Leave us your guess and comments here.
