The stats...

We had our appointment this morning, but I think I'll hold off telling you the news for a few days, just to add to the suspense. (Although, Mike's already let the cat out on his blog. But, if you want to have a little fun vote here and then check your answer!) So, I thought I'd give you some stats about the old wives tales I've been studying up on... Feel free to change your vote if you so desire based on the findings.

-Heart rate: 142
-Carrying high (from what I can tell so far)
-The hair on my legs is growing at the same rate as before, as are my fingernails
-My feet are always cold, but that's how they were before the pregnancy
-Mike doesn't seem to be gaining sympathy weight
-I am 25 and got pregnant in December (for those of you interested in the Chinese lunar calendar)
-My urine has been a dullish yellow (some of these are so ridiculous!)
-I usually crave salty or sour foods rather than sweet (which is weird, by the way- generally I LOVE me some sweets)
-I have been getting headaches, especially in the past several weeks
-If someone asks me to show them my hands I would probably do so palm side up
-A needle dangled from a thread directly above my wrist swings side to side (across my wrist, not from arm to hand.)

Okay, carry on! I'll let you know the news in a few days... unless I get too excited before then!
