Just got back from my 12w appointment. I did get to see Lucky. He/she must have been sleeping, because she/he didn't move around like last time. Baby is head down currently, which meant they couldn't do a nuchal...position wasn't good. We did get pics of baby's legs and arms. DH made a comment about there "not being anything between the legs"...I said it's too early to tell...but the u/s tech said that she would tend to agree with DH. So it maybe that we're having a girl. Who knows...I still think it's early. Baby is measuring right on at 12w0d and is 2 inches long. Heart rate was 170bpm.
When I met with the OB after, we did try to hear the heartbeat with the doppler. I have some "extra padding" so I didn't think we'd hear it yet. DH and the OB both said they heard it...I'm not sure I did. The doppler sounded like it had alot of static on it. I did hear my uterine artery though...not as exciting as a heartbeat.
I gained 3 lbs in the last 2 weeks...which still puts me down 2 lbs from where I started. My OB only wants me to gain 15lbs total. So 1lb a month until the 7th and 8th month. Think I can handle that.
So here are today's pics. Again, sorry for the quality, they are pics of pics. My scanner isn't hooked up to my laptop and I didn't feel like switching to the desktop.
