I haven't felt any movement yet, but I swear last night I felt that slight "flutter" that everyone talks about. It kind of gave me that feeling as though I had butterflies in my tummy.
Some other exciting news.....a week from tomorrow is when we have our big sonogram and they are going to tell us if it is a boy or girl. I can hardly stand the wait! They are going to check all the organs and make sure everything looks good in the uterus. I guess right now the baby is about 6 inches head to rump and a little less than a pound. That's pretty big if you ask me, but we definitely have a long ways to go! Everyone says the last half of the pregnancy feels so much longer...oh joy :) I'm already starting to get a little uncomfortable, backaches, cramps in my legs, can't sleep...and I'm only half way there!!!!!!! Oh well, it's all worth it right? I have definitely realized lately how precious this whole experience is and how I cannot take it for granted. As one of my dear friends just lost her baby this weekend due to miscarriage and so many of our friends are unable to even have kids, I truly am thankful for what God has blessed us with!
