My Appt Today : )

I had a regular appt today too Smile It's been almost 7 weeks since my last appt, so I was glad to get in and see the doc.

Everything is great, my belly is measuring right on at 19 weeks (even though when I'm standing up, my belly looks enormous, when I lie down it disappears!) and he found baby's heartbeat right away with his stethoscope - 142 bpm.

I've gained about 8 lbs :eek: in the last 7 weeks! Ooops. LOL. In total that makes it somewhere between 10-15 total lbs gained. I don't know exactly where I started out.

My big U/S is on Monday Biggrin and after that comes my glucose test around mid July. Then I'll see my doc again the following week.

They haven't measured my belly, thank god. I would probably measure out to be 6 months preggo haha. I'll probably be around where you are with the weight. Just hoping to gain around 30 pounds this time...

wow, u/s on monday! so exciting!

Glad you had a good appointment! Did you say your doc used his stethoscope for the baby's heartbeat? I am so biting my westcoaster lips Sandra as there's a goodnatured prairie folks dig trying to form back there Wink I'm scared to weigh myself, but I really really should do that before the Doc does Monday so I can't be too shocked. Anyway for you you're halfway there so shouldn't you weigh half the total ideal gain by now? Sounds about right to me anyway Smile

I agree - LOL about the doppler comment. I should not laugh as I am only a hop and skip from Sandra. Congrats on great appt. I too can't wait to see what you are having.
