So today was my monthly OB visit and we came to several conclusions...first, in two weeks we will know if the little person in my belly is a girl or a boy. And secondly...they decided it was a good time to change my due date. I've had 3 ultrasounds since finding out I was preggers and each time baby measured big than they initially estimated me. We discussed this today at the appointment after the midwife (same one from last time that I absolutely LOVE) felt for my uterus and commented how it was sitting a bit higher than expected for being only 18 weeks and 3 days. So Hubby and I told her about the measurements at each u/s we had in the past and she promised to look into this and get back to us. And she did...she said after reviewing my ultrasounds and the measurements and comparing that to my the placement of my uterus, my new due date is going to be 2-12-2009. But the kicker is that I could actually also have the date of 2-7-2009. So what does this all mean? For me anyway? It means that the third semester will be sooner than I thought! And that I should feel baby any day now!! That I can not wait for...it will truly thrill me.
Baby was moving around like crazy today and his/her heartbeat was fast and strong. I don't think I could ever tire of hearing that heartbeat so strong.
And in closing...today we introduced our furbaby to the baby in my belly...the proof is in the pictures:
