Today was my second midwife appointment! I’ve lost one pound since my first visit 5 weeks ago! My blood pressure was 120/78. Protein and glucose were both negative. I declined pretty much all the tesing except for CBC, HIV, and something else which I’ve forgetten for the moment. (I’m doing the HIV test not because I’m in any risk category but because I’d rather have them poke me now than have them poke my baby in the hospital if I happen to be transfered.) I’m measuring a little big it seems. My uterus was already out of my pelvis! (This doesn’t usually occur until about 12 weeks.) My next appointment is not until May 9th, 6 weeks from today so we’ll see how I measure then. And best of all, we heard our precious baby’s heartbeat!!! I was really hoping we would but knew, for me, that it wasn’t likely. I’m too well padded. Anyway, after just a minute or so of looking for it, we found it!!! I’m just so excited and thrilled! I didn’t hear either of the boy’s heartbeats until after 12 weeks! I’m still in awe over hearing my precious baby’s heart beating away! We didn’t listen for long but my midwife said it was in the 150’s! Can you tell I’m overjoyed?!
