We had another great weekend and our doppler came in the mail so we've been listening to the baby's heart every night ♥ ♥ ♥
Today we had our OB appointment and it had to be the fastest appointment I've been through to this point. The Dr. asked if we had any questions, pushed around on my belly and listened to the baby's heartbeat- which she estimated to be around 145. Then she talked a little about non-stress tests that they would be doing every two weeks starting in the 3rd trimester. She said they like to keep a close eye on the baby in the 3rd trimester since some IVF babies are high risk later in pregnancy. The test involves attaching one belt to the mother’s abdomen to measure fetal heart rate and another belt to measure contractions. Movement, heart rate and reactivity of heart rate to movement is measured for 20-30 minutes.
According to the Dr's scale I'm only up 1 lb since last month- so why does it feel like I've gained 20? Those two pairs of pants I could wear last week did not fit today when I tried them on.
Tonight Steve and I are going shopping with our contractor to pick out a tub- yay!!
