On June 21st, I was able to hear the babies heartbeat. I was a little nervous going into this appointment because I was worried about their not being a heartbeat. Well, I got even more nervous when the doctor came into the room to find it. At first it seemed as if the doctor couldn't find it. I think she noticed that I was starting to get worried and she try to give me some comforting words, but to be honest it didn't help at all I could think of was "lady you better find that heart beat or their is going to be mental break down". Well good news she found it. She practically was all the over by my hip. This appointment was such a relief to hear the heart beat, but to be completely honest their is still that worry in the back of my head that their might be something wrong at the next appointment. I don't know if this is due to the fact that we have tried for so long with no luck, or of the horror stories that people tell you, who knows.
Also, when did you moms out there start showing with your first pregnancy? I still feel like I am not showing. Also another concern I am not really gaining weight. From my 1st appoint to my 2nd appoint I haven't even put on a pound, not that I am complaining because I know the weight gain will come, but did any of you have that experience? Also, stretch marks, I lotion to try to help prevent but do you think that really works?
Stay tuned for my next pregnancy update, which will be the end of July and this is when we should find out the sex!
