I had my first appointment with my midwife Kathy today. We got to hear the heart beat for the first time! It was really fast (almost 200 beats in a minute!), and I asked her if that meant the baby was a girl. She said that she doesn't like to guess just on that, because you really can't tell this early, so we'll have to wait and see! She thinks I'm further along than my LMP (last menstrual period) is telling us because the baby was higher than is should be at 13 weeks, and I'm measuring a little bigger. Sooo.... I went ahead and scheduled my ultrasound for the 8th of June, and it will tell us whether the dates are right, or if we can expect this baby sooner than expected! Oh and then we will know for sure (if the little one cooperates) whether we're having a baby boy, or a baby girl.
