Greg and I visited the doctor today for a routine check-up. We were able to hear the baby's heartbeat at 150 beats per minute. I continue to feel good and healthy and our doctor said everything looks good! My sleep is interrupted every night by a trip to the bathroom, but I figure God is just preparing me for motherhood. Our lemon is now about the size of an avocado. The baby is about 4 1/2 inches long (head to bottom) and weighs a whopping 3 1/2 ounces. During the next three weeks, the baby will go through a tremendous growth spurt (mommy too) nearly doubling in weight and length. I am really looking forward to feeling the baby move in the coming weeks. I am suddenly having my first pregnancy craving--guacamole!
