14 Weeks! It sounds like a nice milestone. The sickness should be going away now, right? I hope so! Tonight I went to a childbirth class that my midwives offer. Before we start, they listen to baby's heartbeat. 150's to 160's. :) Not as fast as the last time. Which really doesn't mean anything! But fun to listen to.
The class was great. I love going to classes. I was a little bit of the odd one there cause the rest of the moms were on their first time babies and expressed that they didn't know much about what to expect. I'm on my third baby and am a doula. :) It was fun though. It's fun to see people learn about childbirth. I also loved hearing about my midwife's philosophies. She gave us a reading list and she had some of my favorite books on there. Very natural friendly, popular midwife/doula books. That was neat to see.
I also found out that my labs cost me $400 and the ultrasound coming up in 6 weeks will cost me $380. Nice. Oh well, it's all for a good cause = healthy baby!
I've gained 5 pounds now and it's all gone to my stomach. I feel I have a big chunk in front now. I'm feeling bigger and apparently looking bigger since some people have mentioned that I'm starting to show! So there you have it. It seems I'm feeling it too. There seems to be a little bump down low, in front whenever I bend clear over. It's really happening!
Meanwhile, I'm going to start teaching ballet and jazz classes. Yes, while I'm pregnant. That should be a fun sight! I'm actually pretty excited about it! Even though it will look funny....
