A Hint of Things to Come

We had the 20 week ultrasound this past week, and I'd been kinda freaking out because I wasn't feeling Flippy move. (Okay, totally freaking out.) Turns out my placenta is anterior, so the Flipster is mostly beating on the placenta, not me. But we go and get the ultrasound and I'm all reassured everything's fine ... and the next day Flippy starts moving where I can feel it. Non-stop. For hours!

Contrary child!

That is THE most incredible feeling in the world, in my opinion. I hope it makes all the other ills quickly forgotten.

When they are quiet like that is when they are GROWING! In the next few days you'll feel like you'[ve blown up like a balloon!

Just wait until the third trimester when Flippy is putting on a 1/2 pound per week and trying to shove your liver out through your nose ...

I used to love sipping some fruit juice and laying back in bed, to feel the baby move. She got so jumpy right after the juice. (My favorite, though, was sunning on the beach in DR. The baby moved from one side of my belly to the other, away from the sun. It was too funny.)
