Baby Brain: OBGYN Appointment

I went in today to my OBGYN for another checkup. Every three weeks like clockwork I go in for my round of tests. Since I have been feeling the baby move like crazy and since I wasn’t getting an ultrasound and since these appointments always take forever Mr. Rogue opted to skip out of this appointment. I got my blood drawn, I was weighed and my blood pressure again was perfect.

I had a quick chat with my OBGYN just about general wellness and then we got to hear the heartbeat. I always get a huge smile on my face when I hear that heartbeat, when I get the reassurance from my doctor that everything is ok.

Then my doctor measured me and the baby is measuring big and long. 80th percentile which makes sense I guess, I am tallish at 5’7” and Mr. Rogue is tall at 6’2” and little boys are generally a little bigger on the charts than little girls, so we are having a taller bigger boy. Hurrah!

Oh and I just found out a fun fact, carrying a boy burns 10% more calories than carrying a girl. So bring on the cookies!

A healthy big bouncing boy, and a happy mom too!
What more could we ask for? My prayers are answered.
