I had my 28 week appointment with the midwife today. I did the glucose test and she's also going to check my blood for vitamin D. I've gained 25lbs so far. The baby is head down with a heart rate of 120-130. It's the same heart rate that Simon had so does that mean it's a boy? Or is that just folklore? Sounds like a question for Mythbusters! Now I start going to see the midwives every 2 weeks - which is kind of exciting since my last visit was 6 weeks ago. I still find myself thinking, "Wow! I'm going to have a baby, in less than 3 months!" I think I will fret more about what we need after my trip to Kauai next week!
Just for fun, here's a picture of Simon taking a "nap" with his friends.
