Appointment Numero Dos

Second appointment today! It was a quickie, they basically just checked on how I was feeling and used the doppler to listen to the baby's heartbeat. It was in the 150's and sounded great! I was excited to get to hear it again. My weight is down a bit, I've been losing weight since I still hate pretty much all food. But the doctor said that food aversion is fairly common and it should go away in the next couple of weeks. I sure hope so! I mean, not that I don't love force feeding myself at every meal. Mike and I did decide to forgo the traditional nice Valentine's meal out, since I will most likely only take 3 bites and not really enjoy those. Maybe next year (ha!).

So that was it for this week! I swear I'll add in pictures of myself once I start to show, but right now I only look a tiny bit chubby, and really only after I eat a meal. I can't wait for the baby bump to start, b/c I am ready to start maternity clothes shopping! To be honest, I've already bought a few things and wear them on a regular basis. Jeans with stretchy panels are a fabulous idea, pregnant or not.

I have an appointment to in Raleigh on Feb 11th to get screened for Down's syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. Just an ultrasound and some bloodwork. And then we will do another ultrasound at my next appointment, on March 3rd, and will hopefully be able to determine the sex then! I am SO excited to find out. I am trying to do equal opportunity gender shopping when I'm browsing online for baby stuff :).
