Ahhh 4 months :)
I patiently (somewhat) waited for weeks to check up on our little one. The baby still has a strong heartbeat which she found immediately! The doctor says it's in the 140-150's- so according to the old wives tale if the fetal heart beat is below 140 it's a boy- above 140, a girl! So, we will test this theory since at the last couple of appointments it's been above 140.
My SIL pressured me (lol!) into doing a belly pic. There's a little bump there however, if you ask my family, I'm huge! Strangers probably think I have a beer belly. As long as it keeps growing I'm cool. So, since my SIL okayed the baby bump and in honor of my baby's gestational age of 4 months, I'm finally posting a belly pic. Deep breath in, then let it all out!
So here is what baby is looking like this week:
Weight Gain: -1 pound. Yep! I'm back to my starting weight
Sleep: Still not the best but the Snoogle has been a big help... more about that later.
Gender: Team Green
Name: not picked out
Feeling: Still lethargic. I think the baby is taking all of everything.. food, energy... everything!
Health: Still with the backaches. I use a lumbar pillow at work but my back doesn't know it.
Movement: ok, so I think I felt some flutters earlier this week. It could have been gas so only time will tell.
Belly: I think it may be actually worth measuring now. Note to self: get mom's measuring tape.
Next Appointment: Level II ultrasound is April 18 and 20 week appointment is April 22.
And here it is folks...
