13 Weeks

Still not much of a change in this picture (it seems kind of silly to keep posting pictures of the same thing, but I've already started, so I'll continue dutifully). I think you'll be able to see change soon though.

13 Weeks

I had another doctor appointment this past Monday, and everything went great! The doctor wasn't planning on doing an ultrasound, but she had trouble finding the baby's heartbeat with just the doppler, so she ended up doing an ultrasound anyway. The heartbeat was much slower this time (145 down from 180), and she said everything looked perfect. I asked the doctor if there was any truth to links between the baby's heart rate and the sex and she said not really (but then she said she would bet our baby is a boy because it was difficult for her to locate a heartbeat at first!). I honestly have no idea what the sex is, so I guess we'll all just have to wait a few more weeks to find out for sure!

Hahhaa don't worry, I bet you'll be showing soon! I would show you a picture of my belly but it would probably scare you! Only one week from my due date....Actually, it's not so bad, sometimes I feel like a whale and Jon affectionately has many names for me (hippo, Beluga, you get the picture) but sometimes it's not so bad even as far along as I am. I am so excited for you guys! I can't wait to find out if you're having a girl or a boy. It's funny, because I always want to be surprised when I'm pregnant and I get more anxious to find out what other people are having. It looks like we are going to be staying in Charleston until the spring instead of moving in September like we thought and it seems like Jacksonville isn't too far from here so maybe we will come visit you guys if you wouldn't mind having us :) Looking forward to seeing more pictures!
