Today was my regular check-up. Baby girl's heartbeat was strong, so I forgot to ask how many beats per minute. Doctor confirmed that the tests fro my thyroid are coming back normal and doesn't foresee any problems, although she did mention I may go hypothyroid after the birth of LO. She did reassure me that my specialist will be keeping a close eye on me and if anything crops up, it will be looked after quickly.

After waiting almost 3 long weeks for the amnio results, I found out that the baby is perfect chromosome wise and we're expecting a GIRL!

We are so happy to have confirmation that our baby is already doing so well.

Our LO is quite active already and making her presence known. She might just be excited to meet everyone, but she has to wait a while yet for that!

Today was my amnio appointment. Baby is doing well and may be a girl. I'm NOT broadcasting this to family until the DNA results come back in 3 weeks. I'm only 15 weeks and 3 days, so there may still be something else developing there.

The procedure was far more painful this time than last time. Had this been my first experience, I would have done almost anything to avoid this one. 

DH was home all weekend and waited on us hand and foot. Cramping kept coming and going until early Sunday morning, although the muscle spasms lasted until late in the evening.

Baby has been very active this weekend which makes me feel optimistic that everything will be fine.

Baby's heartbeat before amnio: 149

I had an awesome appointment today. My blood work is even better than it was the week before! I also heard the heartbeat. It's nice and steady! My nausea and retching are much better now and I actually have some energy.  Doctor is really happy with my weight especially with the thyroid scare. Next appointment is this Friday for the Amnio. Even my doctor is optimistic and is looking forward to a healthy baby.
