  • So I had my regular appt today as well as my second tri ultrasound. Everything looked good with the baby....measurements matched up exactly with my due date, which is a first for me lol. Baby is still petite though, only weighing 7oz. But the legs were really long! Although baby was uncooperative through most of the U/S we did finally get to see that......
    It's a GIRL!! I thought for sure we were having another boy lol. Her name will be Ivy, but we haven't decided on a middle name yet. The only thing about the appt I'm not too happy about, is that my Dr. is bugging me about my weight again. I keep losing it instead of gaining. I had the same problem with my last pregnancy. They don't believe me that I am eating regularly....last time they sent me to a nutritionist! So, I am supposed to add a Boost or Ensure to my diet twice a day now.

  • Congratulations on your little girl! If the baby is growing good then you are obviously getting enough nutrition wise. There was a girl in one of my college classes who was told her baby was a little underweight and the dr made her spend as much time as possible on her left side. It made a difference.
