We got to listen to the baby's heart for 20 minutes today. The midwife wanted to make sure the baby's heart rate was still variable and average which indicates the baby is in good health. The heart rate had a range of 120-160 which is good. The second probe measures the tenseness of the muscles and will show if any contractions are happening. There were none while we were there.

    She was very active and her heart rate and amniotic fluid were both fine.

    The ultrasound goo gets everywhere.

    The last ultrasound I had, they warmed the goo. It was so nice.

    yeah, they always have goo warmers that they take the bottle out of. It's kind of surprising that they care so much.
