That is right. Today marks 6 months into pregnancy land. I am happy to report that I am feeling good and the baby kicks don’t even scare me (much) anymore! That is a big milestone. I have been feeling kicks since about 18 or 19 weeks and I would jump every time. I couldn’t help it. As reassuring as feeling our little one in there it still wasn’t a feeling I was used to. I guess baby picked up on my anxiousness because he (or she) made sure to move and kick A LOT so I could get used to it. Wasn’t that thoughtful? So now I feel baby all the time. And by all the time, I mean, when I wake up, every time I eat or drink anything, at night and while I sleep. Though the sleeping doesn’t last too long when that happens.
Cory has been able to feel kicks and movements for a few weeks now which is super awesome. AND now we can see my stomach move! So, boy or girl our little baby is a strong one.
The baby books say our little one is now around 11 inches long and weighs over a pound! The book also tells us that baby’s tastebuds are forming and the lungs are getting the important parts that will let him (or her) scream at us when baby is born. Oh, and the book says my stomach probably resembles a soccer ball. I like it when the book tells us what the baby should look like and not worry about me!
It is impossible to believe that we are already 6 months along and only a few short months from meeting our little baby. Time is really flying by!
