We had our Week 15 appointment today, and finally got to hear the heartbeat on Doppler. Woosh woosh woosh woosh woosh ..... I also found out that I lost two pounds since the last appointment, which is the opposite direction than I'm supposed to be going in at this point, but nothing to worry about. That brings my total pregnancy weight gain to: negative 2 pounds. I was, admittedly, a bit paranoid about gaining too much weight during pregnancy, since I started off overweight, but I kind of expected to have gained something by now. Especially since my sweet tooth has returned, and I've been craving ice cream.

This weekend, one of my fellow students was asking me questions about my pregnancy. She asked how far along I was before I realized that I was pregnant. I told her that, since we'd been trying (no need to tell her all the gory details...), I tested myself pretty much as early as I possibly could. Her response, in an absolutely incredulous tone of voice: "Wait -- you did this on purpose?!?" Ah, to be young.


  1. Congrats on hearing the heart beat on the doppler.

    My theory is as long as the dr's are ok with the weight gain/loss so am i.

    On purpose .... Oh, the sting Hahaha

  2. After all that we've been through, I find it hard to believe that people can become pregnant by accident!
