We had another routine appointment today, and everything is going well. The baby's heartbeat was at 144 bpm, and sounds more like a heartbeat and less like a rhythmic whooshing sound. My belly is measuring right at 25 cm, which is right on (amazingly, there is a direct correlation between weeks and centimeters after about week 22). My blood pressure is great and my weight gain is on track.
The next time I go in (in about a month) they will do a glucose tolerance test to check for gestational diabetes, and that will also mark the point at which we'll start having appointment every two weeks instead of every month, since I'll be in my third trimester.
I can't believe how fast the last few months have gone...
