This visit was shorter than the last one. I am thankful for this because in my mind it means that everything is going well and on target. I got to hear my baby's heart beat again, which was 150 bpm. I've gotten used to hearing it because I did purchase a pocket fetal doppler. Once again, the med student had a little trouble locating it, but since I'm almost a pro at it (LOL) I pointed out where the baby should be -- AND I WAS RIGHT! Needless to say, Doc was impressed lol. I was offered the seasonal flu vaccine and swine flu vaccine, which I refused. The doc reminded me that I could always change my mind and they'd be available for me if I did, which is fine with me. I was scheduled for my December visit and that was that!
To my unborn child:
Your heart beat is the sweetest sound to listen to. It makes me smile every time I hear it, just never gets old. I'm counting down the days until I can see you, just shy of 2 weeks now. I hope you do some major acrobatics and I get to feel you move before I see you on December 8. Can't wait to feel your little butterfly flutters. Mommy is feeling better than ever, so much better than a few weeks ago that I forget you're in there sometimes...just kidding. Your name is coming soon, as long as you cooperate when I see you again lol. :)
