Though, this one brought with it exciting news....We're having a GIRL! Seriously, why did I ever put so much into the previous ultrasound? It was only 11 1/2 weeks. I knew when we found out that it wasn't definite since it was so early, but I got used to calling the baby Logan. Now, I'm going to have to get used to calling the baby "she" and whatever we decide to name her. We had a name picked out for a girl, but I'm not so sure anymore. I need to get used to the idea that the baby dwelling inside of my uterus is a girl, not a boy!
The rest of the ultrasound was great! Her little head/brain look good. Her heart rate was 140 which is good. Her stomach measured on track and her spine was perfect as far as we could see. She has long legs for her age. She definitely gets that from me. Russ is tall (6'2), but his torso is long, not his legs.
There was a hint of protein in my urine this morning. The nurse told me to drink more water. I drink 100 oz. a day and she told me to drink at least a gallon...I hadn't drank anything that morning, though so I bet that's why I had traces of protein. There wasn't any sugar, though so that is great news. No gestational diabetes for me please. Thank you!
Baby girl did not want to hold still for my OB to get a good heartbeat today. She was very active during the ultrasound and was even more wound up during the appointment that followed. He kept telling her to hold still, but she wasn't having any of it. I think I would be annoyed, too, if I had already been poked and prodded for an hour. I thought it was hilarious!
Speaking of Russ, he has lost 35 pounds. GO RUSS! I'm gaining weight and he is losing. Oh yea, life is good.
I'm going to go dream about my little girl for a while!
