Hi everyone, just updating... I went to the doctor yesterday--boring routine visit, but thats ok I met with a midwife this time. She measured my uterus--actually measuring about a week larger (better larger than smaller I figure) and listened to the heartbeat @ 145. I'm scheduled for another u/s on July 8th and the glucose test the same day. I'm feeling lots of movement now too--loving that! DH has felt the baby move and we have even seen my stomach move. He/She seems to really like ice cream--lots of movement when I eat it
Hope all is well with everyone else too...

Congrats on a nice boring appointment glad to hear things are going well!
I'm so jealous about movement. 13 weeks today and nothing, just tighter pants lol. I have a doctors appointment on Friday and really hoping to hear the heartbeat on Doppler. I could use the reassurance.
Michelle- Happy to hear things are progressing well..enjoy those movements..I sure am happy for you girl Jenny- Did you have a good appt on Friday? How was the HB? Making myself patient until we hear some more great news!! xo

My appointment on Friday was awesome!! Heard the heartbeat on Doppler, it was nice and strong. My blood pressure was a little elevated, I'm hoping we can chalk that up to being nervous. I had BP issues and pre-e/HELLP with my first two pregnancies. So, we'll see. Trying to avoid salt and drink a ton of water.
Overall, very pleased and starting to get really excited about this baby!
I am so very excited to hear about all of these great appointments! Congratulations on good news ladies!
Michelle, my youngest daughter loved frozen grapes when I was pregnant. She would move like crazy and I also craved them like crazy.
Jenny, you should get a home blood pressure machine. I had one and it helped me tremendously. It was the cheapest one that Target sells and it was very accurate. Keep an eye on your blood pressure and be horizontal when you can be! Great news on hearing the hb!
