12 week OB visit!!

Yesterday was my 12 week doctors appointment, 12 weeks!!! It started by me giving a urine sample - going back to the waiting room - getting my weight and BP - going back to the waiting room - then going to a room and meeting with my OB doctor. He said all the labs from my 8 week appointment were great, BP (blood pressure) is perfect, urine was clear, I've lost a few pounds but they say not to worry, and baby M's heartrate was 161!! It was a little higher than I figured, considering last time it was 141.. Honestly, that was all that was done, pretty uneventful!! It will be the exact same type of appointment when I go back on September 22 for my 16 week visit.. We get to find out what Baby M is (boy/girl) @ my 20 week appointment, YAY!! He was very surprised at how well I've been doing.. I guess he was waiting on me to complain or talk about nausea, etc.. I'm very blessed to have done this well so far, I hope it continues!! The only thing he wants me to do by the next appointment is gain some weight.. (few lbs) He said not to worry, I'll start packing them on soon enough - haha
That's all for now... I'm going to get Ben to take a picture of the Noah's Ark picture we're centering the room around so I can put it on here. We'll also get some of our #1 baby, Avery to show off!! Until next time.....

Don't worry...I lost weight for the first few visits too...I gained plenty after that though! They say high heart rates are signs of a girl...but mine were both about the same and we are having one of each. I can't wait to find out whether it is a girl or boy. I bet Amber is chomping at the bits too! Glad to hear everything is going so well--I bet if you haven't had problems thusfar, it is all good! I will keep checking for updates!

I'm so glad you posted about Noah's Ark, because it reminded me to tell you that...I thought of you when I was at Hobby Lobby this weekend. They have these huge black cutouts of a few animals (like a giraffe and a couple of other animals) that you could put the baby's name on, or really just anything. They are really cute! I think the were over by the lamps. Just thought you might like to know!
