Good Appointment

We just got back from our appointment and all is well with baby g and mama g. We got to meet our Dr. today which was nice since she was at a delivery last time. The funny thing is that she was running late because of a delivery today. We booked our next appointment for a day which she is not on call. It was a quick appointment. I don't really have any questions. Should I? I feel kind of bad but I feel like all is progressing normally. Perhaps I will have some questions next time. We heard the baby's heartbeat again. It is so cool. I must say it was much louder this time an the Dr had no problem finding it. I really liked Dr D she is young and fun and looks like a great person to deliver my baby. I hope she does. We have our next appointment in 5 weeks so that we can get our ultrasound done the same day as our appointment. I can't wait to see how much baby g has changed and grown by then. I will be 18 weeks so cool. It is 2 days after our anniversary. Not a bad present I would say. The week after we are off to PR for the baby moon.

On mama health notes I am glad to say my pee stick was normal, my blood pressure low, and surprise surprise my weight exactly the same as when I was there a month ago. I know I will be gaining weight and I am alright with it. I just am dreading the scale a little. I am the heaviest I have ever been and was hoping that I would have gotten back to a lower weight before I got pregnant. But that didn't happen. So when I went for my first ob appointment at 8 weeks I was 139. I have never topped 140 so I was expecting and dreading them having to move that darned 10lb weight over to the 140 this time. I know I will be gaining 25-30 lbs I know it is normal and healthy. I just think those 10lb jumps are the hardest. So I was surprised to see 139 on the scale again (138.8 if you want to be exact since it was a digital). I guess that is what happens when you throw up half of what you eat. I know next month I will be over 140 but maybe by then when I have my cute baby bump it won't be as bad.
