Baby update

We had our OB appt today.

Basically, everything looks perfect.

I'm finally gaining weight (2lbs in the last month+), which has made my OB happy.

The heartbeat is strong and regular, and we got to hear it again, which was, again, super cool.

The baby is in the position it is supposed to be in for this point in the pregnancy.

The last ultrasound showed that everything was in order.  We have another ultrasound next week, because they couldn't get the heart effectively enough in the last one, because the baby wasn't cooperating.  They got some pictures of it, but I guess they want pictures from all sorts of angles. 

The weird fluttering and stuff that I'm feeling is normal, and it's also normal that I'm not feeling actual kicking yet.

My blood pressure is "perfect" and I'm assuming the blood sugar levels are good, because she dipped the litmus strip in the pee then threw out the pee and strip.  And those are two of the most common pregnancy complications apparently, so that's good.

The genetic testing they did turned out just fine, so there will be no need for an amnio (thank goodness!  I don't like the idea of a big huge needle going into my belly thank-you-very-much)

Ummmm.  I think that's it.  Basically it was a perfect appointment.  Which was nice.  Because, apparently I am constantly paranoid that something is going to go wrong.
