Baby Checkup

We went to the second checkup with Dr. Templeton yesterday. Jenn is at 11 weeks, and they pushed back her due date to when she originally thought it would be: February 18. Dr. Templeton was really nice. She was very friendly, and talked us through everything that was happening. Jenn had a lot of questions, and I had a few myself, and Dr. Templeton was very patient with us, answering all of our questions. It looks like Koby is safe. We don't have to worry about Jenn picking him up as long as he doesn't jump on her our stick his paws into her stomach (something he likes to do a lot!). We got to hear the heartbeat, which was really cool! It was beating at 158 bpm, which is right where it is supposed to be. Jenn had to give some blood and samples for testing, and we'll find out the results in a couple of weeks. The doc told us about a bear at the Build-A-Bear store where you can get a recorder and record the heartbeat, and then build it into the bear so that when you squeeze it, you hear the baby's heartbeat. We're definitely going to do that! So everything is looking good so far, which was a big relief.
