Yes, I can feel the baby move!!! I thought I was feeling something around 16 weeks but wasn't completely sure so I started paying close attention to these subtle feelings in my tummy. Then a few days later I decided to pamper myself with some Christmas money and got a facial. As I was lying there completely still and enjoying the relaxation, I felt the baby! It felt kinda like a ripple effect... like others have described a butterfly or something. Since that day, I am more aware to little movements going on in there. One time it felt like a little popcorn kernel popped, a tiny kick perhaps? Then yesterday that happened 3 times in a row. Hiccups? I can't be sure of what any of these movements actually are, but I know it is the baby making them and that is exciting!! I absolutely can't wait until they are hard enough that Russell can feel them too. I know he's going to love that!
In other pregnancy news:
I haven't had another "episode" since my Tossing Cookies post. Success!
It is almost a guarantee that when I sneeze, a little pee will come out - just being honest here, folks!
Russell and I took a semi-spontaneous trip to Big Cedar Lodge outside of Branson last weekend, more to come on that later!
Still having trouble eating meat... although I was able to eat some delicious fajitas at LifeGroup last night! Thanks Jon & Jen!
I'm 19 weeks today which means half way is next week! Crazy!
2 weeks and 1 day until we find out the sex of the baby. It is killing me not knowing!!!
I think that's it for now...Oh! and Happy 50th Birthday Mom!!! Or Gammie maybe?! What a blessing you are in my life and I am so thankful for you! You are beautiful, selfless, encouraging, supportive, and the list could go on for miles! I hope YOUR day is fabulous! I just wish I could spend it with you!
