We're now 15 weeks and we had another doctor's appointment last week and this time the doctor spent even longer doing an ultrasound. We really enjoyed getting to see our little one! The doctor checked to make sure that the baby is growing appropriately and that the spinal cord is fully closed. Everything looked good! The heart rate was again about 140/minute. The picture isn't as good this time, but we were able to see all of the baby including the tiny fingers and the baby trying to suck his/her thumb. Pretty amazing! I've been feeling good too and have a little more energy than I did during the first trimester. I'm starting to get a "pooch"...I'll make a slideshow of pictures so you can watch my belly grow. In this picture the baby's head is on the right and is looking down.
