So, back to my appointment. Bob was able to go with me because he is off this week from work (yay!). The heartbeat was at 147, which means we're basically right in the middle. No wives tale tricks for me here. I've gained 8 lbs. total, so I'm pretty happy. And, of course, hearing the heart beating was the highlight of the visit.
P.S. We find out the sex of the baby January 14th!!!!! Ahhhh!!! I CANNOT WAIT! :-)
