15 weeks!

We've reached the 15 week point in this pregnancy and had a great appointment with Dr. Schwartz today! My blood pressure was low, 101/70, which is normal for me, though. The baby's heartrate was 156, so according to the old wives tale, is on the lower side and could mean it's a boy! We will be finding out the gender at our next appointment- 4 weeks from today on April 22nd. We are so excited and cannot believe we find out in less than a month. Where is the time going?

Also, I meant to mention previously that Preston took his first trip to the ER a couple of weeks ago! It was one of the scariest moments I've experienced being a parent so far. He is a climber, and has figured out how to climb up onto the couch and our chairs, and as he was practicing this fun new skill recently, he sat down on the ARM of the chair and went right over hitting his head on our hard wood floors. It was awful. After lots of tears, soothing and cuddles, I honestly thought he was ok- just shaken up, but watched his eyes for dilation, etc... Until he vomited. So we called his doctor's office who said to get to the ER right away. I flew to Lutheran Hospital and Kevin met us there. He had a chest XRay and a CT Scan, and all check out ok. They did find something uncommon on his CT Scan, which we followed up with a neurologist about and thankfully turned out to be nothing. But - long story short, it was a difficult couple of weeks after this fall! (There has been much less furniture climbing since.)
Here he is sitting in the doctor's office at our follow up appointment. Such a big brave boy!

So glad to hear that Preston is OK! I can't imagine how scary that must have been for you. We have yet to take a trip to the ER but I am sure we will end up there eventually. I am glad to hear that you pregnancy is going well. Hang in there!
