We had an appt with our OBGYN on Monday for a check up. First thing they do is weight me, I lost 10 lbs! I knew I was having trouble eating but thought I was eating enough. It makes sense because I was so sick for about 4 weeks. The doctor wasn’t concerned because my nausea is getting better. She also said “you’re going to be gaining that back with a vengeance soon!”
We also got another ultrasound to see the baby’s heart beat. She has trouble picking it up on the Doppler because of the baby’s position. I can’t believe how much the little thing moves in there. It looked like a Mexican jumping bean. No joke it was bouncing off the walls! That has to be from Nicholas because I never had that much energy. If it’s a sign to come, I’m sure I’ll get a lot of kicks to the ribs. Also on the ultrasound she noticed that the placenta was lower than normal. It could potentially be a problem later in the pregnancy but isn’t a concern until after 28 weeks. It would stop me from having a natural birth and would have to be C-Section. My doctor said it’s pretty common this early and generally moves as the baby grows. I really haven’t thought much about my birth plan yet but the thought of a C-section scared me.
