I am 24 weeks along now. It's weird because I feel like just in the past two weeks, that my stomach is all of a sudden so much larger! I'm a little worried as to how much bigger I am truly going to get! I see pictures of these girls who are 20 weeks and 28 weeks, and you can see a slight bump. And here I am already knocking people over!
I have been enjoying the "eating anything you want, whenever you want" aspect of pregnancy. However, I think I have been enjoying the sweets a little too much. Or at least that is what my doctor said, after I had gained 13 pounds in 4 weeks. :)
I have been a little discouraged lately, because I haven't felt like I have been "feeling" my baby move. Then I started to feel her lean against one side of my stomach and kind of push, but still no definite kicking. It is just so hard to tell if it's REALLY her i'm feeling...but I have learned the difference between a general sloshing around that she is doing and stabbing gas pains :)
THEN...last night, April 13, around midnight, IT HAPPENED! Ross and I were just getting in bed after spending the night with my family at Laura and John's house. I was laying on my side and I felt it...it was a definite kick! I had Ross put his hand on my tummy hoping she would do it again. After about two minutes, she did it! And it was a big one! Ross and I both just started laughing! It was such an amazing moment!
Thank you baby for letting mommy and daddy share in the joy of you growing! We love you!
