This week I suddenly feel big - not that I feel fat or that I'm self-conscious - more that my belly just grew big this week. It's more noticeably out there, more in the way of everyday functions like bending at the waist (you should see me at yoga) or sleeping. I'm also feeling the baby kick, swish, flutter, and swim all the time these days. Aaron was able to feel the baby last week and it's now a morning ritual for him to lay with his hand on my belly while we are all three waking up. The movements are bigger and more definite (and not yet uncomfortable).
And, from the ultrasound this morning, it looks like we are having a GIRL! (Well, most likely a girl - it could also be a boy whose hiding or whose parts have not yet descended to where they are supposed to be.)
What a day! How fun to finally feel like I'm enjoying my pregnancy!
