I'm on rotation with the MW's, so it was another new one this time. She was great and asked a ton of questions, but also gave a ton of advice. She asked again if I wanted to take the quad marker test (I think that is what it is) and I declined, but she proceed to tell me about babies that were born with downs that couldn't be detected on the 20 week US like I am planning on having. Oh well, I need to accept the fact I cannot change anything anyhow....
My kids came with me because of the time of day and DH is traveling. She was super cool with them and let my 5 yr old daughter hold the Doppler and listen for the HB! It was pretty neat. She found it right away, unlike my 12 week in which they couldn't find it. This was the first time I've heard it since the 8 week US, so I was super happy! She said it was 140, right in the middle.
Four more weeks and we find out the gender!
Edited to say she did mention that I gained 7 pounds this time, and I should probably be careful! Like I said, she was a talker and went on and on about it. I told her that's how I work, I gain weight when I'm pregnant! Oh well!
