OB Appointment

On Friday, March 6th (my brother's birthday!) I had another routine OB visit. My doctor, again, had a hard time finding the heartbeat! Almost as soon as the Doppler wand touched my belly, Peter gave a big kick and the Doppler went "WHOOP!" really loud. My doctor and I laughed at the same time. Everything is going well, which is wonderful. I began having Braxton Hicks contractions around the 20-week mark, which was about when I started having them for my last pregnancy (Anna) so I'm not worried at all (she was born right on her due date).

My next appointment is when I'll have to have the glucose screening to make sure I don't have gestational diabetes. I'm not looking forward to drinking that nasty sugary stuff, especially since my sweet tooth has somewhat disappeared during this pregnancy. But, it's all for Peter, so I'm happy to do it. :)

Here are some baby bump pictures taken the day of my appointment 2 days shy of the 24-week mark:

I heard Mom mention when you'd be in Michigan and it made me think you'd probably have to come visit us in the hospital! That'd be kinda cool, you haven't been able to do that for Benjamin or Anna. :)
