21 Week Appt.

So this morning was my monthly appointment. Nothing exciting happend so that's a good thing. The doctor and I went over signs of preterm labor (although being my first time I don't know what contractions really feel like) and she measured my belly and listened for the heartbeat. It was very strong and very loud - the baby is getting BIG! Other than that everything looks great - the doctor said that everything at the ultrasound a couple weeks back looks good and hopefully it should be smooth sailing from here on out. I will be watching my blood pressure though since it has dropped to 95/50. They say it's normal to drop during pregnancy but I will still keep an eye on it. Next appointment is in 4 weeks. Only 4 1/2 months left!
