Firsts

Tonight Brien got to feel his baby girl move for the first time. I've been feeling her wrath for a while now. I was rocking her big brother to sleep and I suppose she already has a touch of jealousy. She was kicking and stretching all around. I told Brien to come over and feel. He placed his hand on my belly and she immediately ceased all movement. This is not an uncommon thing. Both of my other kids would do the same thing. He could see them moving from across the room, but if he placed his hand on my belly, they'd stop. I poked at her a bit and he felt her skim by his hand. His eyes lit up and his immediate reaction was, "That's just weird". Yup, I agree. Try feeling this INSIDE of your body! So, anyhow tonight was a first for Baby #3 and dad.

Things are going well with the pregnancy so far. Next month I'll get another ultrasound and maybe we can get another good shot of her face. I am showing all sorts of signs of pregnancy now. From swelling to cravings, it's all right here. I'm in search of the best acne treatment. Break outs occur during pregnancy that will make a woman reminiscent of her teenage years. But, I can handle it. I am mommy, hear me snore...errr...ummm...maybe that's roar, right?! Well, I'm off to snore now.

Congratulations! I always loved that feeling, and was always so excited when Hubby could feel it, too! I would press up against him in bed and the baby would kick him in the back! Hee!

Enjoy every moment, sweetie! And a belated Happy Mother's Day to you!

What a wonderful time for all of you. You can't describe to anyone what the feeling is like of a baby moving inside you can you?

Congrats! I remember when my hubby got to feel out youngest one for the frist time. We where sleeping and she started kicking his arm. I guess she was not comfortable. LOL. Many blessings.

So good to know your pregnancy is going well! With my third, I definitely had much more back pain and overall "yuckiness" (I think it was because I ws officially OLD by the time the third one came around!).

SO exciting to feel the baby move!

Thats beautiful...well, whatever you do, dont buy proactive. They talk like its a miracle cure, and for 72.00 it should be (for the kit), but its not. I have found moisturizing your skin so that it doesnt create its own oils works the best:) I cant wait to see the pics of your new baby girl!!

I love it, I remember Allen trying to catch the babies moving so long ago.

As for the acne, I had better skin when pregnant than now. I have not found anything that works, so if you do let me know.
