At first I wasn't quite sure what was going on. I was sitting at my desk during my morning plan time, and all of a sudden, it felt like something was rubbing on or tickling the inside of my uterus, about an inch under my belly button. I knew it wasn't gas, I'd felt that before, and I'm all too familiar with that. I had a feeling it was baby doing a little flutter kick, but to be sure, I booted up google to see at what point in a pregnancy the fetus can be felt. So I started searching, and I can say without a doubt that it was little Maxilly getting comfortable. It was the greatest sensation in the world. S/he was pretty active yesterday, but I haven't really felt anything today, except some stretching. I'm at 17 weeks, almost 18, and we have another doctor's appointment tomorrow after work. I was hoping to find out if it was a Max or a Lilly, but I have to wait a few more weeks :( September 30th should be that day!! Let's hope so anyway.
So I'm almost to the halfway point! This is very exciting to me. As wonderful as pregnancy has been, I'm excited for little baby Voruz to get here. I'm lucky in that I haven't gained a ton of weight in my face or anywhere else on my body. The weight I've gained is most definitely baby. My stomach is hard, and I'm pretty sure if it was fat it would be mushy. But it's pretty hard under there. Unfortunately, I look a lot further along than 17 weeks, because I have no torso. I'm short, so I have no where to go but out! My students are very excited about my pregnancy, and I've only known them for 3 weeks. So that's kind of fun in class, when they ask me about it.
So all in all things are going well. I'm getting tired a little easier again, which is really frustrating. I know that I should get my sleep now cause I won't get much in a few months, but I've got things to do! I don't have time to go to sleep at 7:30 every night (although I WISH I did! How awesome would that be??). I'll be sure to keep you all updated, if I get any news tomorrow I'll be sure to post again, otherwise I'll post when something else happens!!
