So even though my blood sugars, blood pressure, and the baby’s heart rate have been close to perfection (her words, not mine!) my whole pregnancy, she has me going for twice weekly fetal evaluation just to ensure things are staying on track towards the end of pregnancy, because I guess towards the end things can (and sometimes do!) change quickly, and she feels this is something that will help arm us with valuable information.
I do like getting to hear 30 minutes of a strong heartbeat twice a week, as opposed to the 3 second clips I was getting prior!
It is a truly magical sound, like nothing I have ever heard!
Growth check today… heartbeat still strong at 143, estimated baby size is 2lbs and 6 oz… that sounded big for me at 27 weeks, but I’ve since been told it’s normal range! Baby’s developing well, still very active, but already over the pics and didn’t cooperate for any today 🤣
Oh kiddo, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet 😇
How big was your baby when they arrived?
Little babe’s heartbeat is beating strong at 150 today, and my doctor could hear all the movement on the Doppler; she mentioned baby is healthy and very active and I’m over here like yo, you aren’t kidding!
Did your baby have a strong heartbeat in your pregnancy? Did you have a boy or a girl?
