Well yesterday I received the best Valentines Day gift ever!
I got to hear my baby's heartbeat.
That's right. A BABY!!
It was very scary at first. The doctor was using a Doppler rather than doing a sonogram. And he couldn't hear it. So he decided to do the exam and then check again. During the exam he was able to locate the baby. After the exam was over he got the Doppler back out and tried listening again. AND FINALLY! He heard it and then he let me listen. It was so amazing. And I am about 10 weeks along. I am due around Sept 12.
He isn't restricting my workouts. I just have to keep my max heart rate around 160 beats per minutes.
Calories need to stay around 2000 or 2200 if I'm working out.
I'm really nervous about the weight gain.
I want to be one of those women who only gains like 20 or 25 pounds.
But I've never done this before!
I don't know what I'm up against.
I just have to stay focused.
Woo hoo! :)
