So, I keep meaning to take belly shots of this pregnancy, and yet.... The only pictures I have are from right before our first ultrasound at 9.5 weeks along. Until today. Ok, granted, we are now 17.5 weeks along, but at least I finally got it done! Yup, I'm pregnant. In fact I had my first moment yesterday where I caught my reflection in a store window and went woah.... I no longer just look fat (yay!), I look - pregnant. Dumb, I know, but it still doesn't quite sink in for me most of the time.
The other fun part is that this baby is really strong. I don't feel it all the time, but starting at about 14.5 weeks I could feel the baby a couple times a week and now it's more like a couple times a day. In fact, this morning Steve came to cuddle with me during the snooze session on his alarm, and I cuddled up and went back to sleep, but apparently Steve wasn't so lucky. I must have been out of it, because Steve said the baby didn't want his hand on my stomach and kept hitting and kicking it repeatedly! I love feeling the baby move, it's so reassuring and makes it all seem real somehow, and I love that now Steve gets to feel the baby too.
