13 weeks - superquick!

Just updating to say Bean and I went for my second prenatal visit yesterday and heard Peanut Hoppy Feet's heartbeat. Dr. Howey said it's between 150-160 bpm. Bean's was always 170 or higher, so take that for what it's worth. I immediately said, "It's a boy!" and of course Dr. Howey sorta rolled her eyes and said, "Oh it doesn't mean that, there's nothing to that theory." But still, it's just another way this pregnancy and baby are SO different from my first one. So.

Oh according to the scales there, fully clothed in a totally different outfit (with an extra layer), I've gained a pound and a half from my last visit.

Bean liked hearing the heartbeat and pronounced it hard and bumpity. I also had my blood pressure checked and you know, made my donation in the ladies room. All in all the visit was completely uneventful. Other than hearing that cute little heartbeat of course.

Dr. Howey pronounced that I'm "looking good!" So there's that. Woohoo.

Posting the 13 week belly photo in the gallery.

Off on our vacation today (we hope - no word on whether our flight's been delayed yet, so feeling hopeful). I'll try to update from the sunny South if I can get onto the internet AND if I have time.

Aislyn's heartbeat was always a bit lower than Riley's had been. But I do wonder sometimes if you are having a boy (even though I'm sure Bean is right, haha) because of all the sicky-ickness.

Have fun on your vacation!

AJ's heartbeat was always in the 140s. And did I mention that their pregnancies (at least the first trimester) were as different as NIGHT and DAY? Just sayin'. No one but no one was more surprised than I when the ultrasound revealed "girl."

I do so hope you guys are on your way to the South soon and very soon.

I dont know if they did a full exame on you but just to give you a heads up.... I took Gracie to an apt with me when I was pregnant with Suzie. I had to undress from the waist down and Gracie got very upset that I was doing this. And the expression on her face when the Dr checked me was one of shock and confusion.
She was two at the time and I didnt even consider that she would even pay attention to what was going on. Needless to say, we had to have a little talk on the way home.
Its a funny story now but I just thought I would share it with you in case you had a similar situationg with Bean.
Have lots of fun in the sun

isn't is amazing how different they can be. All four of my pregnancies were different. Although, the heartburn just about killed me every time.

I'm loving reading your progress. So exciting!

Love and hugs,

How exciting hearing the heartbeat. I get to do that in a few weeks time. And this Friday is my first scan.

I hope you guys have a great holiday!!
