16 week appointment

This morning, T.J. and I went to our 16 week appointments. First, we saw the hospital midwife, which was actually quite enjoyable this time! She sat and talked with us for quite a bit about childbirth classes and her thoughts on them. We left feeling better about those appointments than usual.

Next we rushed over to Charlotte's (because we'd spent so much more time than anticipated with Kay!) for our home birth appointment. There we did all the same stuff - urine test, blood pressure, and fundus check. She confirmed my guess that the baby is hanging out on the right side of the uterus (it's extra hard there) and all of my urine results came back normal. She tried to hear the heartbeat with the fetoscope, but it's really much too early, so no luck! And, despite my 10lb total gain, I only gained 1lb from my last appointment by her scale ::shrug:: Maybe my maternity pants weigh less?

I really enjoy going to my prenatal appointments, because it's the only time that I get to talk to someone face to face who is really invested in our pregnancy and who knows more about it than I do.

Most exciting news... we scheduled our 20 week ultrasound! October 16!
