Unbelievably, it's already been a month since my last appointment. I had my most recent check-up yesterday. The monthly check-ups are pretty dull. I did get to hear the heartbeat again which is reassuring. It's amazing how, as the days go by between appointments, it's so easy to become paranoid that something is wrong. Even though there's obviously SOMETHING growing down there and I can feel movement. It's just one of those things. The doctor also did my first measurement. He said I'm measuring right on track—not too big and not too small. The heartbeat was 148, which he said was not too fast and not too slow. This leads me to the obvious conclusion that my baby is perfect. Naturally. I also got to schedule my 20-week ultrasound. In just two loooooong weeks, we should be able to find out if we're having a boy or a girl.
