We Have Movement!

I started feeling Jumper move last week, and it has been the coolest feeling! At first I wasn't quite sure what I was feeling, but the more I have felt it, the more confident I am. Sometimes the movement feels like a light tickling sensation, other times it feels more like light tapping. I love feeling Jumper because it reminds me that there really is a baby in there, and that baby is alive and growing! I am excited for when DH will be able to feel Jumper move...I am sure it will mean a lot to him.

I was thinking that it is getting to where I should post a belly shot, but sometimes I think I just look more fat than pregnant. My sister assures me that is not the case, but I guess I just feel really self conscious. I am really excited to look pregnant and not just like I have grown a gut. I think that part of the problem is that I am not quite fitting into maternity clothes, but am definitely outgrowing normal shirts. I feel like I have been in this in-between phase for a long time.

Besides that, things are pretty much the same with us. J is doing great. He loves his baby food and he is becoming so much more mobile. He has been rolling a lot more and is getting really good at moving himself around in his baby walker. I just can't believe how big he is getting!


  1. J is rolling that is so great! Once they get mobile at least for me life was easier. I hope that is the same for you.

    Ah, the movement. It is great! I am really mean, I will load up on sugar and then lay on side and feel the baby go crazy. It is just great though.

    I am so excited for you.


  2. I still feel like people look at me and think I'm fat and not pregnant (although as the weeks go on, it's getting better). I think it finally became fairly obvious around week 20.

    Isn't feeling movement great? It helped calm my nerves tremendously!

  3. What a great milestone! Congrats!

  4. Can't wait for the belly shot!!!

  5. This is so fantastic, it is so reassuring isn't it? :) I didn't post any belly pics until 20 weeks + so if we need to wait a little longer I'll understand. Great to hear J is doing well too.
    Take care :)

  6. Awesome! I think that would be one of the coolest things about being pregnant.

  7. yay for movement!! it's so cool :-)

    belly shot, yes plz!

  8. Isn't movement GREAT! :-) I wish I looked pregnant and not like I just have a bloated gut too, but I guess it will happen in time. However I'm not known for being patient.
