As my tummy begins to expand (along with my appetite) I have begun to wonder "When I will feel this lil thing." Well, friends it happened! I was laying in bed this week, ALONE because my husband was on a mission's trip and feeling a lil more lonely and emotional without him, I was needing a special touch. I guess you could say it was more than a Special touch. God sure does know how to lift me up and just the right moments. Well anyways, it's kind of hard to explain and honestly I didn't know if I really felt it until it happened again a couple days later. Lately I had been wondering what it would feel like, "Would it hurt?" "Would it make me jump or be sick"? LOL I know I'm weird but it was like soft and yet so loud to me at the same time. And no it didn't hurt or put me in shock, it was pretty cool! I'm not really sure how else to describe it but I felt the baby!!! Since then I have felt the baby every day and I love it!!!
Well it only gets better!!! Yes it does!!! On Monday my husband came home from Guatemala and we had to go straight to the baby apt. I went into this apt with a lot of expectation. You see, a couple weeks ago a friend of mine game me a girl's number who is practicing to be a sonogram technician and needed practice so she connected me with her. Well I set up an apt hoping to find out the gender of the baby, and the night before the apt she cancelled on me due to the weather :( I was so bummed. So this apt put me at 19 weeks and technically my dr. waits til 20 weeks but it was my lucky day!!! She was able to tell us!!!
Let me rewind a little, so last summer before we got pregnant I had a dream that I was pregnant and had a little boy (blonde hair, blue eyes...he was beautiful) Before that dream I had always wanted a girl but after that dream something changed and I have wanted a boy. These last 4 months I have had 2 more dreams about having a boy and of course my gut feelings were telling me, it's a boy. So my heart was at ease Monday to find out that yes we are having a BOY!!!
We bought our lil guy his first Teddy and a very soft teddy jumper!
thrilled!!!! My dreams are literally coming true!!!!
Now all the fun planning begins as we get ready to tackle the nursery and decide on his name.
WEIGHT: 112 (told you my appetite grew)
