Had another appointment yesterday...

Well, we went to the midwife and had a fairly uneventful appt. Got to hear the heart beat again though so that was neat...if you go by the old wives tail that a fast heart beat (above 140 beats per min.) means a girl and a slower heartbeat (below 140) means a boy, then we are having a girl...then again you got a 50/50 shot of getting it right!
Still loosing weight rather than gaining it (but managing to get stretch marks anyway...won't be sharing a photo of those)!...was told to up my protein intake and eat more often in general so we'll see if that helps. Donna (our midwife) was not concerned. She told me if by 20 weeks I hadn't gained weight we'd need to take some further steps, but for now, no big deal.
Other than that, all is well.
Our next visit is in August and hopefully we'll have an ultrasound to determine the sex, but we may end up waiting until September, it just depends on what the midwife wants to do. I'm not in any hurry cuz I know eventually I'll find out, whether that's a month or 6 from now.
I know, not a very exciting post, but hey it's better than nothin'.
2nd Trimester here I come! (one more week...then I'll be 14 weeks and officially in the 2nd Trimester).
For those keeping track...My Due date is January 19thI am 13weeks as of Thursday (that would be 3.25 months) - right now the baby is about the size of a lemon just to give you a visual comparison.
