I went for my 16 week checkup today. After waiting more than an hour for my 10 minute appointment, I was happy to hear baby #2’s strong heartbeat and movement. He/She kept moving away from the Doppler, making it challenging for the midwife to get a heartbeat reading. When she did, it was in the 140’s. If you go by the old wives tale, this could mean the baby is a boy, but we’ll know for sure in 2 weeks at the anatomy scan. That is assuming the baby wants to cooperate for us. lol
I am so anxious to find out the gender so I can start choosing names. It’s no secret that I would love a daughter, but I’m so hesitant to even start thinking of names for a girl until I know for sure. Call me superstitious…lol Any of my faithful readers have any name suggestions?
Oh, and I was pleased to find out that I’ve only gained 8 lbs so far this pregnancy, however, it’s probably not good that I gained 5 of them over the past 4 weeks. Oops! That’s what happens I suppose when the nausea subsides and it coincides with the Holiday season.
Happy Chanukah to any of my Jewish friends/readers.
Here’s a cute photo of my little man and his “freeze face” trademark expression. Thanks H. Moran Photography for the amazing photo!
