I can feel the baby!
On Sunday when I was driving home from Ohio I had a strange feeling in my low stomach that kept repeating on and off for a couple minutes. It felt like a bubble bursting, or the wave off a flutter kick. I’ve felt it again every day since then. It’s infrequent and here and there, but I’m pretty sure it’s the baby. He/she is the size of a bell pepper this week, which seemed pretty big when I was at the grocery store.
I’m excited to start feeling more and more kicks and moves – and stronger, too! (Remind me of this in a couple months when I might want to eat my words.)
Dave and I both thought my belly looked bigger this morning compared to yesterday, but we’ll have to wait and see how it looks on Monday to compare it to week 18‘s picture.
I ordered two new dresses that should be at the house when I get home from work – I’ll post more about them depending how they work out! Fingers crossed!
In other news, yesterday Dave left me a box of raspberries on my desk at work as a surprise. It was the best and so delicious! A month or two ago Dave and I had a conversation that while I love getting flowers, oftentimes I’d rather get raspberries than flowers. He remembered and brought me some!
What do you prefer? Flowers or something else? If flowers, what kind? If something else, what? If I’m getting flowers I love daffodils. But raspberries beat flowers in my opinion!
