Still Feeling Good...


We spent the last two weeks in Georgia! We left June 27 late and came home July 13. It was a long drive (16+ hrs) with more stops than usual for my pregnant self to eat or find a bathroom, but the time spent with our families was great! That is likely the last time Richard will see everyone before he deploys, so it was all especially worthwhile. While we were at the Ezells I thought I felt a little baby movement. But as I've read, many women confuse those first flutters with gas or digestion, etc. Well it has continued every day since then! It's soft enough that I have to be lying down or sitting still to notice it (and I am probably only feeling the strongest kicks) but it is definitely not gas or anything else. How amazing!!! Here's a picture of me at 17 1/2 weeks! My pre-pregnancy shorts and pants are becoming increasingly uncomfortable. I've been wearing mostly work-out pants or shorts with elastic or drawstring waists. I have an appointment with my midwife next week (July 23) and then we have an ultrasound appointment on August 12!!! I am SUPER excited about that one. Next post after next appointment... :)
