Last week, I had my 16-week check up for Baby #4. These 2nd trimester appointments are blissfully uneventful!
They check my weight (up a pound).
The check my blood pressure (fine).
They took blood (to check my iron levels).
They listen to the baby’s heartbeat (140s).
Then we say “Good Bye” and see ya next time!
That’s pretty much how it goes. Next appointment will be my 20-week appointment, which will be a little more exciting since it’s the big anatomy ultrasound. However, since we already know that it’s a boy, that small piece of guessing isn’t there. Since I’m considered “AMA” (Advanced Maternal Age), my ultrasound will be done by the perinatologist instead of the normal ultrasound technicians. Either way, it’s a glimpse at our newest one!
