I had another check-up at the doctor today, and we got to hear Baby Mount’s heartbeat again (142 bpm)! Baby Mount is now the size of an apple and apparently is quite active because he/she moved around quite a bit both this time and the last time the technician was trying to find the heartbeat. It is just so amazing that technology allows us to hear things like a baby’s heartbeat while the baby is still in the womb. I met with a new doctor today, and he was really great and helpful. All in all, it was a quick visit: we were out of there in about 30 minutes!
In just four weeks we get to find out whether we’re having a boy or girl! (You can still vote on what you think the baby will be by going here.) I cannot wait to find out. The ultrasound is at 8:30 on October 6, so we will find out first thing in the morning, and I know I probably won’t be able to sleep well the night before because I’ll be so excited.
I still don’t feel too pregnant yet, though I’ve gained 8 pounds and I’m going to need maternity pants or something with an elastic waist VERY soon. 🙂
Now that we’re only 4 weeks from knowing the gender of the baby, we need to make some progress on picking a boy’s name. We are pretty settled on a girl’s name but are really having trouble with a boy’s name. Any suggestions??
