Sorry. No vlog to share today.
All is well and I'm officially 15 weeks pregnant.
The baby is about the size of an apple right now. He/she is 4 inches long from head to bottom and if my doctor would take a look, she may be able to tell me what I'm having. (Unfortunately, I'm sure I have to wait 5 weeks for that ultrasound.)
Most new moms begin to feel the baby move between 16 and 22 weeks but it's very common for experienced moms to feel small movements earlier on. I'm happy to report, I felt the baby moving yesterday. It melted my heart and really connected me to this pregnancy in a strong way.
Falling in love with the idea of having a baby is such a strong emotion. I really can't explain it. All I can say is if you've been there, you know what I mean.
I'm excited to learn about what my baby is. I'm excited to give "spicy baby" a name and connect with him/her on a more personal level. And, of course, I'm excited to browse the internet and local stores for all our baby needs.
Next week I have another check-up and hear the thump, thump, thump of that little heart. I'm so excited to hear that sound again. I'll let you know how it goes!!
