baby news

Today I had a Doctor appointment. Matt had to work and couldn't go with me. It went something like this:

Got on the scale. Hadn't gained a pound...yet. YIPPEE!
Looked for a heartbeat. Couldn't find it. Got another machine and still couldn't find it.
Doctor Barrong came to see me. Talked about how I am feeling and how things are going. Scheduled an ultrasound so that I wouldn't have to worry for 2 weeks.
Got an ultrasound 15 minutes later...did I ever mention how AWESOME my doctor is?
The ultrasound went great. The baby is just really, really wiggly. It would not stop moving around. The heartbeat is 159 and they moved my due date back to November 14th.
I am off of Prometriun and everything is going awesome.
I will be 13 weeks tomorrow. I am hoping for a very boring pregnancy and so is my doctor. He says I deserve it and I think I do too.
