I went to the OB today, just for a checkup. I'm very very anxious about this baby. I have thoughts of miscarriage and whatnot and weirdness. I have trouble imagining getting through this whole pregnancy. I guess the ignorance is bliss theory really is true.
So it's extra special and extra worth celebrating when the doctor found a strong heartbeat today (really quickly!) at 152, and we also heard a big ol' kick with the doppler.
*Whew* Now I can rest easy for about 2 days and then be all filled with anxiety for another 3 1/2 weeks until the next appointment (which is the Big Sono).
In other news, I gained NINE POUNDS over the last four weeks. Holy ****! I tried to convince the nurse that I was wearing extra heavy jeans, and that I had accidentally left a 5 pound weight in my pocket. She didn't buy any of my BS.
I'm going to attribute it to holiday eating and not ever exercising. I think that's a pretty solid reason. I'm usually not crazy about watching my weight during pregnancy (can I get a witness on the 70+ pounds I gained with each boy?? Yes, that is 70lbs PER CHILD) and I know that I'm growing a baby and whatnot, but I'd rather not be excessive with this one again. From experience, I now know that having a 25 lb infant and 50 lbs of placenta and amniotic fluid doesn't happen...
So. Back to the treadmill it is.
