Last night I lay in bed not able to sleep for the excitement of today. Today I had my 20 week ultrasound.
Long after Allan had drifted off I quietly thought about baby and how amazing it is that there is a brand new life growing in my belly. I felt so very blessed and just plain lucky that this gift was given to me.
As I lay there thinking about baby, there was a sudden, firm kick. I smiled at the perfect timing.
The loveliness of the moment didn’t end there. Baby kicked and twisted and jumped and turned for the longest time.
My eyes teared up as I brought my hands to my stomach and felt the tiny little body moving beneath my fingers. Feeling your child move for the first time is so amazing. I can imagine that no matter how many times you’ve been pregnant that first moment of feeling that there is indeed life in there is stunning.
Last night wasn’t the first time I’ve felt movement, just the strongest 🙂
I’ve known I was pregnant since I took a pregnancy test back in January. It was confirmed through an ultrasound and heartbeat. But feeling baby? Magical.
Just as magical… seeing our munchkin this afternoon.
We got to find out the gender today.
And I can’t possibly put into words how happy we all are!
And I’ll let you all in on a secret. All of these clothes were bought in the last four months. Yes, before I knew it was a girl for sure!
I’m so in love with my baby girl.
Oh and I should add, baby girl was measuring right on with how far along we think I am. 20 weeks and 1 day. October 5th is for sure the due date!
