Went to the doctors today -

Nurse advice line made me come in today because they thought I might be having issues with my appendix Click here to enlarge But I wasn't. Just more unexplained pain that makes me stop in my tracks when I get out of bed, change positions, etc.

Anywhoo, we got to hear the heart beat today for the first time Click here to enlarge dd was so excited about it. It was 148-150.

Is the heartbeat a good indicator for the sex of the baby? What are your thoughts....

Oh and the more good news is I have only gained 2.5lbs so far Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge

Maybe it's that crappy round ligament pain? Congrats on the hb and sending boy vibes. Click here to enlarge

I think the stupid nurse line is overly cautious but better safe then sorry. I just have these bad pains in my right side only and it's really low by my pubic bone. Sometimes it hurst so bad it stops me dead in my tracks. I thought it was weird that it was always on that side only but apparently - it happens. But the nurse line wanted me to go in for an appt so I did.

Really? Okay well that makes me feel better. Click here to enlarge

I thought it was strange it was only on the right. I saw just a random OBGYN today who I thought was awesome and he explined the muscles and ligiments to me and mentioned my body was releasing horemones. Not sure how horemones create this very werid and sharp pain but whatever. Click here to enlarge

It was just a treat to hear the heart! I was hoping since I had pain they would give me an internal ultrasound and I might get to see if there is a penis! Click here to enlarge

The heartbeat doesn't indicate gender at all, it's an old wives tale. I would guess round ligament pain too.

Oh and my pain was only on the right side as well. Turns out after birth my ligament didn't return to it's normal position (it's longer) and now my uterus is crooked. Ahh the untold joys of pregnancy!

I'm glad it was nothing. My girl had the slowest heartrate of the three (2 boys, 1 girl) Click here to enlarge so I don't believe this heartbeat thing.

I don't think it was ligaments for me until about 6 months. That's when I started with the stitch in my side - horrible, worst pain ever. Before that it was just my organs getting squished.

My three girls all had heartbeats ranging anywhere from the 140's to the 170's. They could be sleeping or resting, and the heartbeat will be low. Someone on another board had HER BIG U/S TO FIND OUT THE GENDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and it was a 147 heartrate and it was DEF A GIRL! TIME TO BUY PINK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I'm crazy caps lady. Because they're all about finding out the gender. Oh, and 18 weeks is apparently halfway through because they're all planning for their early inductions. Click here to enlarge
