Today I had my OB check-up. I turned in my lovely "jug of fun" and had my 2nd trimester lab work done too. I was a little concerned when the lab tech made the comment about how little urine I had in my jug- guess I really need to concentrate on drinking more water each day!!!
I was shocked how fast my appointment went today, I guess after my marathon session last time I was expecting another long one. I didn't have to wait long before being called back and they did a urine sample, weight (haven't gained any I guess that is okay since they didn't say anything!) and blood pressure 110/60 :) Then I went into the room to wait for the doc, again didn't have to wait long. He came in asked how I was feeling etc... then measured my abdomen, and used the doppler to listen to the heartbeat. It took the doc a few to find the heart beat which had me a little concerned at first until he said he was picking up all kinds of kicks and that it is often difficult to find the heartbeat at this stage because they have so much room to move. He didn't tell me and I didn't ask (wish I would have) what the heart rate was, but apparently good! I go back in four weeks for the "big" ultrasound! I asked if the kiddos could come to the ultrasound but they said no- which is probably for the best however they will give us video of it for them to see. We have decided to find out the sex of the baby- I am still hesitant because of the whole in-law situation (see previous post) however I cannot let them influence our decision because it is our decision!
I am still nervous about the pregnancy, but getting more excited every day. I have even started thinking of nursery ideas, and we have talked names (my son wants to name it Firefighter Dave- LoL! of course when we say what if it is a girl he says NO!) but not really getting anywhere with that. I still have to keep pinching myself, cannot believe I am 15.5 weeks!


  1. Glad things are going well. I can't believe that is all they do in appointments. I'm so going to miss ultrasounds. Glad your feeling more positive about things ;)

  2. I know! This was my first appointment not having an ultrasound:( REALLY looking forward to next month when I get to see our little one again:)

  3. Glad to hear everything is going well. So excited about the big ultrasound!

  4. I saw your comment on KK! I will be praying for a healthy pregancy for you!

    I am confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:13, 14

  5. Yeaaaaa!!! Good reports! I love good reports!
