24 week appointment

Today I had a doctor’s appointment with Dr. Behm.  First, he checked out the baby’s heartbeat. As usual, it’s loud and strong and fast. He seemed pleased with that. He then measured my abdomen. From my pubic bone to the top of my uterus, I measure 24 cm. He said the measurement relates to how many weeks I am. So, I’m dead-on. Then, Dr. Behm broke out the ultrasound machine. During our 20 week ultrasound, the doc was unable to see all 4 chambers of the heart (much to my distress!).  The baby had had 4 weeks to grow bigger so the doc wanted to double check the heart at this appointment. As he expected, he had NO problems locating all 4 chambers this time around. The heart looks great! What a relief! He also assured us that our baby is still a boy. In 2 weeks I have my glucose test. Next official appointment is Dec 19th.
