I am 12 weeks pregnant today! I think I am technically still in my first trimester until 13 weeks, but still, I can't believe how quickly things are going by so far. This baby will be here before we know it.
I went to the doctor yesterday. I did the typical get weighed, take your blood pressure, pee in a cup routine. I did get to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time! That is just the greatest sound! Because the baby is still so low in my pelvis, it took them a minute or so to find the heartbeat, but there it was! The nurse said it was beating really fast and was in the 150-160 bpm range. When I got home, I looked back at my pregnancy journal for Nora and at my 12 week appointment for her we heard her heartbeat for the first time and it was in the exact same range! So, maybe that means this one is also a girl! We'll see...the nurse said it's too early to tell. Jonathan thinks this one's a girl though!
Besides a flu shot for me, not much else happened at the doctor. I go back in 4 weeks!
