So, yesterday was my second doctor's appointment. I feel so lucky to have found a doctor that I feel comfortable with. Dr. Ginter is great. She didn't get on my case for gaining 12 pounds so far!
Anyway, Dr. Ginter answered a few questions fo me, then she had me lay down so she could hear the baby's heartbeat. She tried for about 6 minutes (maybe more) to hear it, but she could only hear my heart (which was racing by the end of the 6 minutes!). She was very calm and a couple of times she said things like, "I guess the baby is just being stubborn today and doesn't want me to hear its heartbeat". Of course, I was trying not to freak out, but I was getting very scared! Eventually she said, "why don't you come across the hall with me so we can do a sonogram".
As soon as I got on the table and she put the wand on my stomach, an adorable baby popped up on the screen. Much to my relief, I could immediately see its little heart racing away! Although I was scared at first, it turned out to be a good thing because I got a peek at the baby that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. You could see the profile perfectly, she also pointed out its arms, legs, and spine. Unfortunately, she couldn't print pictures for me so you'll have to take my word for it!
P.S. Several people have asked me how to respond to my posts. At the bottom of every post it will tell you who wrote it, what time, etc. There is also a place that says how many comments there are. If you click the word "comments", it will take you to another screen where you can leave me a comment. For those of you who do not have your own blogger account, just click the button that says "name" and type your name in there so I know who wrote it.
P.P.S. I love comments!
