24 week check up

So today I had my first appointment at the Maternal Care Clinic. The Doctor was super nice, but was running so far behind that my appointment felt a little rushed, I didn't get to ask all the questions I had for her because I ended up with baby brain while I was waiting and looked like a deer caught in the head lights when she asked if I had any questions. Oh well, I will be back again in about 4 weeks then every 2 weeks after that.

Update: Baby is good, heart beat at 144 which is a little lower than last time, so now it has been anywhere between 144-160. I doubt anyone could tell me what I am having based on that. Everything looked good. She said my tummy was measuring a tad bit small (just cause I have a small torso she said), in your face everyone who kept asking if it were twins!!! Weight is good, Blood pressure good. Everything is perfect!

One thing that was brought up again was my due date. It has bounced around a couple of times between September 29th and October 1st. Blair and I have been going by October 1st since that is what one of the ultrasound techs had said but both my family doctor and now the clinic are going by September 29th. I am unsure of what to do now. Do I tell people September or October? Feel free to leave an opinion in the comments section :) All the help I can get would be appreciated!


  1. Just say "in the fall" or "end of September", cause you know, it's probably not going to happen when think it will anyway!!! LOL

    Cathy - never posted on a blog before so I think I had to put anon... weird.

  2. Judging by that heart rate, I guess a boy! Both my guys were always between 140-160... but who really knows!

    If I were you, I would probably tell people "October 1st" ...with first babies most people go past their duedate.
