24 Weeks! (And comments)

Okay, I fixed the settings so that ANYONE can comment- so leave comments! This blog is so blah cause no one comments... grrr....

I had my 24 week appointment today. It was fast and easy. The baby's heartbeat was 147bpm, perfect. I've only gained 4 lbs so far in pregnancy, and it's a shock every time I weigh in. Each appointment I expect my weight to shoot up 10-15 lbs but so far so good. Baby is growing healthy so all is good.

They measured my uterus for the first time today. It's a little on the large side for how far along I am. Doc said this could be because I'm just carrying high, but just in case they're going to do an ultrasound at my next (28 week) appointment. YAY! He just wants to make sure that there's not too much amniotic fluid or anything, but he didn't sound concerned and honestly I think this is just his reason to use for another ultrasound. At my last appointment they said they pretty much search for reasons to do more ultrasounds. I love my OBGYN practice...

Eisley kicks on a very regular basis now, much stronger. But she's still very mellow and shy it seems. Any outside stimulation like noise, touching my belly, moving at all and she clams up and pretends she's not there. Lol, I wonder if this is a sign as to what her personality will be like. Does it mean she'll be shy? Or just mellow? All I know is that a lot of pregnant women say the opposite, their babies react and kick like crazy whenever they're stimulated in someway.

Time will tell!


  1. I can't wait to feel her kick! I bet she is just like a miniature Heather, crafty and all!

  2. Lol, if there's one person I can't handle, it's ME! Justin and I have always joked about that...
    If she has my manipulation tactics... I'm done for.

  3. HA! That's hilarious! I am sure she will be the apple of your eye ( even if she can manipulate ;) )
