Starting to Kick
Well as of today I am 20 weeks into the pregnancy. Things are continuing to go very well. No complaints! As you can see my belly is growing more and more each day. Even better...I have started to feel movement. Last week was the first time I began to feel something strange. I was not sure what it was at first, but I had a pretty good feeling. It became more and more frequent as the week went on and now this week it is very apparent that the baby is quite active. It is most active late at night. While lying in bed earlier this week I could tell that the baby was moving quite a bit. It was so noticeable to me that I thought it might even be noticeable to Todd also. He put his hand on my stomach and within seconds he felt something. It was amazing! I thought it might be too early for someone other than me to be able to feel the baby move, but I must have been wrong! So our little one is very busy these days. It is so amazing to know that this little person is just getting stronger and stronger each day!
We will be getting an ultrasound next month, about 4 weeks from now. We are still planning on not finding out the gender. I am sure it will be difficult once we are actually in the middle of the ultrasound...the temptation to find out will be huge, but we are going to be strong!
Well that is all for now. Things are good and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Baby Menor!
