I had my 24 week (6 month) check-up yesterday. I braved our winter mix storm (which mainly produced ice) to head to the hospital for my appointment. I made it just fine to the hospital since the office moved my apt up in the day so I didn't have to deal with all the nuts on the road during the original time. So, I took my time and made it even early to the office.
I've gained 17 pounds so far. I'm sure that will drastically change soon. All of my other stats are good too. While the doctor was measuring my belly, he had asked if we had picked out a name yet. I shared with him in my most proud mommy voice, yes Drew Thomas. Dr F studied my face and in a very approving voice said that the name is a very good choice.
Then it was time to find Drew's heartbeat. Last time we were there, Drew was moving around so much it was hard to get a long period of time for the Doc to listen. This time, after finding the right spot on my belly, a very strong and loud heart beat filled the room.
As we were finishing up the apt with questions and answers, Dr F announces that Drew is the man and everything is looking great. Yeah!
