I took E with me to the appointment. I told her we were going to listen to L's heartbeat. When I went in to give my urine sample, I told E that I had to leave it so they could make sure that L was OK. So then, whenever the nurse and midwife did anything (temperature, BP, pulse, doppler, etc.), E asked "Is Baby L-L OK?" It was so precious.
When Paul came home from work, I had E announce the good news. "Daddy! Baby L-L OK!" She was very proud to be able to relay that little bit of information.
I was very proud to relay this little bit of information: I've gained only 10 pounds so far in my pregnancy. That's good news, since I was already 30 pounds overweight, and 10 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant with E. Hopefully when I lose the baby weight, I'll keep it off this time.
