It has been 3 weeks since my last visit to the doctor. Everything was fine then, and I have no reason to believe something isn't fine now, but I have been getting paranoid. I was trying to just forget about it because we have our ultrasound next week, but I finally broke down and got an appointment for today just to check the heartbeat. I'm happy to report everything sounds great! The heartrate was 151 today. They also checked my weight and blood pressure. I've only gained 1 pound in the last 3 weeks, so that's definitely an improvement. :) My blood pressure is really low too, so I don't think I'm in any danger of developing preeclampsia. Its all good news. Now we are just counting down the days to our appointment. Friday is our 5 year wedding anniversary, so we are taking a quick trip up to Boston. We haven't been there before, so I'm really looking forward to it. Its going to be cold, but it should be sunny at least.
I have been doing a bit of daycare research too. I've found a couple of places that seem nice at first glance and at least one I will be avoiding. My great friend Angela sent me a link to a website where I could search licensed daycare facilities and see all their previous inspection results and the things they were cited for. Its been really helpful. Darren even found a daycare that gives a discount to AA employees. We will definitely put it on the list to check out. Price won't be a huge factor but it will definitely help if 2 daycares are pretty equal otherwise. That discount would push it over the top. We'll see. That's to worry about in April.
