All about baby

In case you're wondering about our coming baby...

The baby is due October 11, but somehow, I doubt I will make it that long.  Celestia was 6 lbs. 8 oz., and Tatiana jumped a whole 2 pounds to 8 lbs. 7.5 oz.  As Jonathan was a 10+ pound baby, we will be keeping a close eye on the situation, because this momma simply cannot have a whopper baby, and I think we would all rather not have a cesarean.

We have had one sonogram to look at the baby, and everything looks good so far.  At the sono, baby's heartbeat was at 140 bpm.  We were back at the doctor yesterday, and baby's heartbeat was at 167 bpm.  To give you an idea, the average range is 120-160 bpm, with it being higher in the first trimester.

I'm feeling pretty good.  Tired, but not too sick to my stomach as long as I eat small, frequent meals.  If I eat too much at one time, it makes my gallstones flare up and is EXTREMELY painful.  So, small, frequent meals for me, because I don't want to have gallbladder removal surgery while I'm pregnant (although they can do that).

Thanks to everyone for the congratulations.  We're excited!  :)

The little one is due on my birthday. :) Congrats to you both. I'm really glad for you. I hope Jon's excited too! He's been a daddy for so long, but this is the process he missed out on. It's totally awesome.
