Ob said everything came back normal on the ultrasound and baby is right on track. I lost another 4 lbs which puts me at -17 pounds for this pregnancy, she said she's not worried about it since baby is measuring at 11 oz and 10 in long. She listened to baby girls heartbeat and it was 152 yesterday but 144 today? Could it be because 152 was on the ultrasound and 144 was with doppler, the readings on the doppler I own it's usually 140 something so I'm assuming so. Ob also said I get to do the fun diabetes test at 28 weeks... fun fun for me lol oh and she felt around my belly for my uterus she says it's just above my belly button now

Yay for a good visit and a good u/s! =)

No, the baby's heartrate varies w/ activity level just like yours does, so it's not the difference between the u/s machine and the doppler.

If I had to guess, I would guess that you check the heartrate w/ the doppler at home when you're not feeling a lot of movement.  Also, they push in pretty far w/ the u/s thing, so it likely woke her up or something. =)

I'm glad you and baby are both looking good!
