Here’s a quick update on the pregnancy. Saw the doctor today and we heard the heartbeat. That’s the exciting news. It was faint, but it was there. My weight stayed the same, so the doctor was happy. I’m told that for my weight, doctors like to see about 10-20 lbs gained during the pregnancy. That means no overnight chocolate binges. :) Thankfully I started watching what I was eating before the pregnancy so that hasn’t been too much of an issue. But I do have Mint Cookie Chocolate ice cream in the freezer. Mmmmm.. ;)

Anyway, we made another appointment to see him on Sept 26th. On that day, we’ll make an appointment for the detailed ultrasound, which is when the doctors will make an attempt at guessing at the sex. We’re still hoping for a boy, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a girl since we have the girls name picked out and have no clue on what to call a male child.

Stiill no agreement on a boys name yet.
