Weight gain: Just under 1 pound... 1/2 a pound maybe? I am officially above my pre-pregnancy weight.
We had our 2nd midwife appointment today at exactly 18 weeks, and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat for the very first time! We've seen the heartbeat on the ultrasound, but we actually got to hear it today, which was kind of cool. To be honest, it was much cooler to see it on the ultrasound, but it was a nice reassurance that, yes, there is still a baby in there. And now, there is only one more week to wait until the big ultrasound! I really really hope that they will be able to tell the sex... because this will likely be our last ultrasound, so it's our only chance to find out before the baby is actually here. I know there are plenty of people that don't find out in advance, but I simply cannot wait! I don't want it to be a surprise, I want to know so badly!
