18 weeks 3 days

Monday, April 2, 2012

Things have still been pretty uneventful pregnancy wise. We did have an OB appointment on Friday and everything is looking good. Baby M's Heartbeat was around 150bpm and all measurements were good. I have only gained about 3lbs which the Dr. said is perfect, and I am quite happy with. I am definitely looking pregnant now and will have some new belly pics up soon.

We have been researching and contacting a few Doulas in the last couple of weeks and had our first meeting with one yesterday. It went really well and we both liked her and thought she might be a good fit for us. We were supposed to meet with a 2nd one today however due to a family emergency she had to reschedule for Saturday. This was a little disappointing since I was hoping to meet both of them back to back and hopefully make a decision by the end of the week. At this point with the price of the one we talked to already and the services she offers I have a feeling we may be going with her, however I want to at least meet with the other one and see what she is like and what she offers.

We have our 20 week ultrasound next Wednesday, and are both looking forward to it and getting to see our baby again. As I think I've mentioned we have chosen not to find out the gender, and are sticking with that.

In other news, we added 2 new members to the family in the form of cayuga ducklings. I will post some pictures of them in a day or 2. Their main purpose will be pest control in my garden, but we are hoping that maybe we got at least one female this time and will have some duck eggs.

I'll have some more updates in a day or 2 and will have some pictures with that one.
