18 Weeks

Hello! Finally I am updating my blog....our internet has not been working at home so I am at Panera using the wireless. :) My body has been changing a lot, and I definitely have a major baby bump now. I am now up 15 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight!! Numbers I have never seen before! :) The most exciting thing is that a couple weeks ago I felt the baby move for the first time! At first it was hard to distinguish between baby movement and gas... :) It felt like butterflies in my stomach; just a little flutter. Wow!...It just still amazes me that there is such a tiny, but detailed human that has been created to form inside me. It makes me smile everyday. :) I can now distinguish pretty well when I feel the baby, and Thad got to feel it for the first time last night. He was so excited!...and very smiley. I love how excited he gets about everything. I have been feeling really good, and have been able to get out an exercise a lot more now that the weather is warming up. I also found a wonderful prenatal yoga DVD that I have really enjoyed. We had an appointment with our midwife on April 2nd (which seems like a long time ago), but she said that everything is going very well. She said my uterus felt a little taller than normal, which could mean many things...It could mean that I am growing faster at this stage, that I may be carrying extra fluid, that my intestines were puffed up a little bit that day, that I may be having twins, or that I may be further along than we think. Humm...lots of options. Well I have an ultrasound tomorrow so I am very anxious to find out. If I get to a computer with internet I will let you all know how it goes. For now here are a couple pictures of my belly at 18 weeks.
Whoa!....this one looks really big!
