So I am at 13 weeks and today the baby's heartbeat was 150, and she found it right away, which furthers my fantasy about having twins in there. Yeah, maybe I will tell you about that sometime. For the record, I gained SIX lbs since my last appointment, which is really absurd, but I don't mind too much for two reasons. #1 Last time I was wearing light summer clothes and flip-flops. This time I was wearing jeans, a sweater, shoes...etc. #2 I am not throwing up as much anymore, but still nauseated enough that not everything sounds yummy, so I am always trying to eat something to see if it will make me feel better. As long as it isn't coming back up, whatevs. Chicken pot pie for dinner peeps!
Anyway, I am not one to post belly pictures because my belly is no cuter pregnant than it is non-pregnant, but here is a nice picture of my face. Why your face? you might ask. Well, this is to document the increase in cheek size and overall ballooning that takes place in my face over the course of my pregnancy. It's really amazing folks :o)
My next visit isn't for five weeks, so that I will be 18 weeks and get my ultrasound the same day! Woohoo! YES, we are finding out the gender. HECK YES.
*A note about weight. With my first two boys I say a regular OB, and every single visit they made a point to talk about my weight gain and whether it was the proper weight gain or not. By the end of my pregnancies they were always a little like, hmmm, you might want to watch that, because I have always gained more than 40 lbs each pregnancy. With Oliver and this pregnancy I have seen midwives and I have not heard a single word about my weight. Never. I am sure if it would come up it if was indicating some problem, but otherwise, they don't give a darn!
