I'm 14 weeks pregnant today! Things are really starting to move along. I'll try to get hubby to take a picture of me this week! Some exciting news. First of all, I felt the baby move on Monday night. It lasted for nearly 45 minutes. I've felt little things here and there, but since I'm still so early, I shrugged it off as digestion. But Monday there was NO DOUBT! The baby was doing back flips in my belly! Now, a 4 inch baby doing back flips still doesn't make that much of an impact, so I could only feel it when I was lying on my back, laying perfectly still. It was so amazing!!! This is 3 weeks sooner than when I felt Ethan move.
And more exciting news!!! We are going to find out in 2 weeks if this little one is a boy or a girl!!! We had planned on going to Fetal Moments...a place that does 3D and 4D ultrasounds. This is where we went when I was pregnant with Ethan. The problem is that it costs $110 and really we just want to know what it is. The pictures aren't very good at this stage as the baby is still very underdeveloped. So I called my friend that cuts my hair (who is also pregnant). She has a friend who is an ultrasound tech and has a portable ultrasound machine. She is going to do our ultrasound for free to tell us if the baby is a boy or a girl! YAY!!! I am so excited! It's just another step in bonding and connecting with this little one. She is also going to give us a disc with all the pics on it so I'll be able to post them.
