Joey and I want to thank everyone in Wetumpka for our shower. I can't wait to see everything that our little one got.
In other Jacob/Caroline news:
I went to the doctor yesterday for a 31 week check up. My blood pressure was good and I was measuring right on schedule. My doctor was a little concerned about my weight gain--9 pounds. We are just going to watch it and make sure that it picks up in these final weeks. I am not dieting, but I began this pregnancy about 10 pounds heavier than I did with Andrew. I'm guessing that my body just didn't need as much weight this time since I didn't lose all of my weight from my first pregnancy??
When the nurse tried to get J/C on the doppler, she could not hear the heart. I would normally panic at this, but I could see (and feel) him/her going absolutely crazy. He/she would not hold still long enough to hear the heart for a very long time. Finally, she was able to get it--143 bpm. I am a little concerned about how wild this baby acts. I still do not have to do kick counts because this one moves all of the time. We are now going to the doctor every 2 weeks. It is getting very close! Everyone at work and Andrew's daycare think that I am having a girl. All of my family (with the exception of David) thinks that it is a boy. Joey says that he has no clue. I go back and forth, but most days I think that we have a Jacob and not a Caroline. We will be thrilled either way!
