Update After Doctor's Appointment

So, Baby REALLY doesn't like the doppler! At the appointment yesterday when my doctor went to check the heartbeat Baby started moving away from her. Not only that, it started to kick at her, too! It kicked so hard that it bumped her hand away! I guess because it's a sonar type thing it can irritate the baby. It was hilarious! She moved over to the other side of my belly but it wouldn't stay still long enough for her to get a good reading. She said "well. at least we know there is one!" I will always remember that!

I've lost 5 pounds. I don't know how, but I have! There's nothing wrong with it, though, since I weighed more when I got pregnant. At my last appointment I had gained a pound and this time I had lost five so now I'm four pounds lighter than I was when I got pregnant! That's exciting! I think it's because I went through another couple weeks of feeling kinda nauseous and wasn't very hungry. Even still, my appetite is fairly normal. I try not to eat too much junk food and I can't eat too much at once. Before I was pregnant I could finish a meal at a restaurant no problem but now I'm finding I'm always bringing at least half of it home with me. I guess it's just me!

So, now I won't see my doctor until after Baby is born...kinda weird/sad. I'm not really super close with my doctor but I like her. She's so relaxed and easy-going and it puts me at ease about things. I'm sure my obstetrician will be good too, but I'm a little nervous about it. My doctor said that when Baby is born to give them a call and they'll set up an appointment within the first week. I can't wait for her to meet Baby! WE can't wait to meet Baby!

We've thought of some names and have written them out with the middle names and everything, but I'm going to keep them a secret for now! You'll have to wait and see! ;-)
