The past week or so I've been a little worried because I haven't felt flutters in a week. I got scared and started thinking the worst. I go to my appointment and I haven't gained any weight (yay! because I really can't gain any) and I'm doing more walking and less eating when I'm bored because I'm back to work 2 days a week so that helps. I'm trying to eat healthier. Anyways, I told her my concerns and she said not to worry that it's normal to feel them and then not. She put the doppler on my belly and instantly we heard -swoosh swoosh swoosh- and my heart melted Nate loves listening to the heart beating. So everything sounded good. I go back March 20th. Here's the not so happy part - I can't find out the sex until March 27th at my 19, almost 20 week ultrasound 5 weeks away! I'm not sure I can wait that long!

Edit: And because I'm having another c-section, she will do it at 39 weeks. Because my due date is on a Saturday and they won't do c-sections on the weekends, she said it will be the Monday before so I guess I'm having this baby August 12th.

Love that you got to hear the baby and know when you will be having it, however it sucks that you have 5 more weeks too to find out the gender!

I know!! I guess it's a good thing and bad. On one hand I want to go out and buy stuff but on the other this will give me the time to pay off some bills, but money aside and what not. Still, I have to wait 5 more weeks!!

Glad you had the great appointment! Don't you love that swooshing sound after you have been worried? Sorry that you have to wait to find out the gender... I don't know about where you are, but the place I went to had deals for like "Tuesdays between 9-10am ONLY gender determination for $25!" and another had a "Black Friday" deal with the same idea but for Fridays, so I'd check around and see if there are any awesome deals near you that won't break the bank if you're super excited to find out earlier.

There is a place near here that will charge $80-$115 to do it and the soonest they will do it is like March 5th but that's not guaranteeing finding out the sex. So I guess we will just wait.
