Well, I guess can officially announce that I'm pregnant. Mike and I are expecting our first baby on 7/8/09 (sooo easy to remember, huh?). I will be 17 weeks this next Tuesday.
Unfortunately I promised someone a photo, so alas, here it is:
I'm experiencing body inflation. This is what I look like now, but...
This is what I currently feel like
We are thrilled about the baby. We felt it move about 2 weeks before Christmas. I was sitting on the floor and my pants were pulled tight across my tummy and I thought "That is either really strong gas, or the baby is moving." So I touched my lower tummy and felt what felt like fingers brushing across my hand, separated by a thin layer of skin. I grabbed Mike's hand and he felt the baby move twice, and I felt it once more. In that indescribable moment, the world changed for us. It was magical.
Mostly since then it feels like butterfly flutterings. However, starting this last week the movement now feels like popcorn popping.
Although Mike and I would love to bask in the spotlight, we get to share this fun time with my sister Robyn (due about 2-3 weeks before us), my sister Summer (due about 1.5-2 weeks before us) and my eternal friend Jenn (due about 2-3 weeks after us). I personally think that is hilarious. (This is what I look forward to)
