15 Weeks

I went for my 15 week appointment yesterday and it was very uneventful.  We listened to the heartbeat and the doctor had no problem finding it.  The baby was right under my belly button.  Dr. Benton has a new fetal doppler to listen to the heartbeat, but it does not count the heart rate.  I was disappointed to not know the actual heart rate but Dr. Benton said if she had to guess, she would think it was in the 160’s.  She said it was very fast!  She also made sure to remind me that it has nothing to do with determining the sex of the baby.  I just had to laugh because it is so easy to get caught up in all the old wives tales, but I try not to listen to them too much. 

I go back on August 4th for my BIG ultrasound.  Since we are going next Thursday to Virginia College for the free ultrasound we are hoping that the baby will cooperate so we can find out what the little munchkin is.  I will make sure to drink a 20 oz. Dr. Pepper before we go so the baby will be bouncing off the walls!  If for some reason we do not find out or are not 100% sure, we will have to wait a few more weeks to try again at the actual ultrasound at the doctor’s office. 

I have been feeling pretty good overall, just really tired at night.  I have not gotten all of my energy back, but it is coming  slowly.  I will say that I have been very blessed to not be sick like I was with Jacob.  I did throw up a few times in the beginning but have not been sick since the end of May.  Thank the Lord!  I guess it is time that I start posting pictures of my growing belly.  I will try to post one every week, but do not hold me to it. 


Hope y’all have a Happy Thursday!



YAY...I'm so ready to know what is in there!!!!!


Look at you, all cute and pregnant! :)




aw yay!!! So exciting! I am super J that you are going next week to the college though. I still need to research in my area, my great aunt (in law)cannot perform "free" ultrasounds anymore due to people abusing the machine :*( So I will have to wait either until the end of Aug or if I find a college around town!

You are cute as a button preggo! love the belly! are you showing sooner than you did with Jacob?


How exciting! You look so adorably! I hope you don't mind me saying that! Looks forward to hearing more!
