Hello again! As of tomorrow, I will be nine weeks into my second pregnancy! We had our first OB appointment last Monday. Everything looked great. They are going to continue monitoring my iron levels and my thyroid levels, but all is well. The doctor found the heartbeat with the Doppler, which was unusual due to the fact that you aren’t supposed to be able to pick up baby’s heartbeat with that until at least 10 weeks. By my calculations, I was at 7w,3d last Monday. Dr. King told me that he thought that I was about four weeks further along than I thought, so they scheduled the dating scan for that afternoon. During the scan, we again picked up baby’s heartbeat, which was beating strong and loud at 148 bpm. I was measuring 7w,6d, so we decided that my due date would stay at February 13, 2015. He said I could go anytime from 2/10-2/13. The ultrasound doctor didn’t know how Dr. King found the heartbeat on the Doppler in the office so early, but it was still amazing to hear my little jellybean! Our next appointment will be around the 28th of July, which is the day before my birthday. I can’t wait to hear the heartbeat again and see how much I’ve grown. I’m already getting a belly! 🙂
Mikey is with me at work right now. Nanny was watching him this morning, but had a funeral to go to this afternoon, so he is just hanging out with Mommy for a while! I don’t mind. He’s such a good boy. Since he hadn’t taken a nap yet today, I put The Parent Trap on Netflix and he was asleep within five minutes. He’s napping in his pack and play in my office now. I wish I could take a nap, too.
I found out today that my nephew is having a baby boy! They are going to name him Adrian Michael, and I can’t wait to meet the little guy!!! Apparently, there is a baby boom in our family right now, lol!
Anyway, I hope that all of you had a wonderful and safe Independence Day, and I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed day! Until next time!
