Another Uneventful Doctor's Visit (Whew!)

Here we are at 28 weeks 4 days and all is well. I am happy to report that I went to the doctor again today and everything looks good with Mom & the kiddos. No ultrasound today. We just listened to the heartbeats.

The babies' heart rates were 137, 140 and 142. The old wives' tale says that heart rates over 140 are girls and below are boys. These little ones are making sure they remain a surprise until their birthday!

I've gained 36 pounds, though it feels like much, much more. I just can't seem to put the pounds on, no matter how hard I try. But my blood pressure is good and we'll see how the gestational diabetes test comes back. Here's the latest belly shot.



I start weekly visits to the doctor now, and my next ultrasound is at the end of the month. Then we'll have ultrasounds every two weeks. I hope to continue to have nothing but good news to share with you.

Thanks for all of the prayers that are helping me and the babies stay healthy and keep growing.

Christy, I am so happy things have been going so well for you! You look great!

And if it helps (or doesn't) that old wives tale doesn't mean much...otherwise we should have had two girls! (Guess I should let him know...)
