I hit the 18 week point of my pregnancy on Monday, and two weeks from today, we find out if little poppyseed is a boy or a girl!
I’ve been feeling good and really getting into a nice routine since the kids both started back to school.
I am not a gym person, but I’ve already hit the gym twice this week!
But I’m not going to lie – I was getting nervous about not yet feeling the baby move.
Somewhere around the 18 week point was when I first felt Trenton move. And honestly, I have no clue when I first felt Charlotte move. We were gearing up for Jarrod’s Afghanistan deployment, and that part of my pregnancy with Charlotte is a total blur.
I think I just assumed that I would feel this baby move early since I’ve already been pregnant three times.
Another weird thing about this pregnancy is that I started seeing the baby move a couple weeks ago – in the shower when the hot water hit my belly and sometimes when laying down. I wondered if the baby wasn’t strong enough to make itself felt.
Now there were a few times that I thought I did feel the little poppyseed moving around. But then I’d remember that I had eaten broccoli or Mexican food at dinner….
But last night and this morning (and even a few times this afternoon) calmed my nerves. All of the sudden this baby is making it felt that he/she is moving all around! And we’re not talking the popcorn/bubbles feeling. Nope - this morning laying in bed I felt a kick from the outside! The little thing must have been saving up all of its kicking power for when it got really strong and good at it!
