I had my 18-week check up today and everything is going good. Took about 5 mins to find the heartbeat tho...it was quite low, like in my pelvis region. It was a healthy 147 bpm. My quad screen came back normal, and I've only gained 6 pounds so far...does that seem like a lot to anyone for 18 weeks? I'm measuring exactly where I should be, and I get my gender ultrasound in 2 weeks...I'm so excited!

This is my 3rd...I gained 53 lbs with my son and 45 with my daughter, and I seem like I'm not gaining as much this time and I barely look pregnant...I just didn't know if 6 pounds seemed normal at this stage...

I so did not see that this is your third. I think your still okay. If doc isn't worried I wouldn't be. What are you hoping for? boy or girl?

another girl...my daughter will be 28 months when this one is born and I have girl stuff already so it would be a lot easier...

This is my 3rd and I didn't gain ANY weigh till 22 weeks. With my boys I gained 60 pounds and 50 pounds so every pregnancy is different.
