finally & officially, after much waiting, I felt the lil one in my belly two nights ago :) I'm so excited. This is the part I look forward to from the moment I get a positive test. Once I can feel it, I feel so much more at ease. I was getting worried because it seemed like it was taking forever but in reality, it wasn't. I felt my oldest at 18-19 wks because he was my first, I suppose. With my youngest, it was 16 wks just like this one. I don't really understand women who say they felt their baby at 9 wks. I mean, c'mon! That is not even physically possible. Drives me nuts. What do you think about it? On a message board I frequent for my due date month, there were many girls who said they felt their baby at 9 wks...10 wks...11 wks, etc. One girl was backing up their claim with this reponse, "Think about it. If you hold a butterfly in your palm, you can feel it. So why wouldn't you be able to feel a live human being inside of you?"
Um...maybe because we have like 2,500 nerve receptors per square centimeter in our hand & I highly doubt there is anything even close to that in our UTERUS!
So far, I am only feelin baby at night when I'm sitting on the computer or cuddled up studying. Just feels like little tickles & bumps here & there. Only 13 more days until the big ultrasound! I'm excited & apprehensive at the same time. I can't decide what's in there by my own "instinct". In my past pregnancies, I've wanted a girl sooo bad, I convinced myself it was a "she"...and was disappointed. Of course, I love my boys to pieces. and of COURSE, I still want a girl so bad. But something inside tells me it wouldn't be so bad to have 3 boys. It would definitely be insane...it's insane with two! But It would also be fun & boys are easy :) But I long for pink in my life. I'm a girly-girl & I love pink & barbies & dollies & tea parties. Whatever God gives me is what he wants me to have though so I will be happy no matter what!!
I will most definitely update after the ultrasound. Keep thinkin pink!
