On July 15th, I felt the baby kick for the first time and actually knew what was happening. What a life-changing experience. It makes this whole pregnancy thing finally real! I think maybe that it's been going on for a couple of weeks, but I attributed the "bubbles" to tummy gas. In even better news, Chris was able to feel a very strong kick with his hand on my belly the very next day. Let me tell you, that was one proud daddy! Since then, I've noticed a pattern to the kicking episodes. I usually have a few when I wake up, around 7am. Then a few more around 10/11. Mini will rest for a while through lunch, and then get back at it around 3pm. That's the most active time for the little squirt. Then not too much until 9/10/11pm. Of course there are random one-kicks throughout the day that keep me smiling!
I've been feeling fabulously the past month, and I can't wait for the next appointment to check on how Mini Freed is doing. Speaking of the next appointment, this Friday is D day (provided that Mini Freed cooperates during the ultrasound to show us his/her stuff).
BOY or GIRL?
Send me your predictions!!
Stay tuned for the big announcement!
In the mean time, here are more belly pics, proving my growing wasteline.
This is 20 weeks 2 days.
Remmie is still quite interested in my bump.
...or maybe she's just a camera hog.
