lyzjost~ I'm also FINALLY starting to feel the little flutters. It first happened during the night of Christmas, but then I didn't feel anything for a week. I was terrified I'd rolled over on my stomach and smothered the baby or something, but then I felt another flutter late on New Years. I guess the baby is a night owl and I need to be awake to feel any movements Hopefully soon, the movements will happen more frequently and during the day so I can enjoy them more.
I'm happy to say I'm starting to feel human again...Other than tired and a little back ache, my symptons have all disappeared. Excited for my Level 2 ultrasound on Jan 22nd!
Kare-bear - I'm fairly certain that it's impossible to hurt your baby with your own body weight! Enjoy those flutters and little kicks - by the time you get to your 8th month or so, they won't be so enjoyable! I've been feeling some kicks on the outside of my belly already, but so far Hubbie has missed them. I think he believes me, though.
My US is also on the 22nd! Are you finding out gender? We will, and did with our other two, then gave them "prenatal names" so we could keep our choices private. Leah's was "Mavis", and Ben's was "Melvin"...was fun to see people's faces when they thought those were their real names!
lyzjost...LOVE your idea of giving a prenatal name! We have some "great", truly awful names we could use.
We are definitely finding out the gender. I always said I never would, but now that I'm expecting my first, I desperately want to know. I want to be able to refer to the baby as him or her instead of BB (like a BB gun), which is how my husband refers to him/her when we talk about the baby... It's actually very cute - he'll ask me if his BB is hungry now and shouldn't I be having an apple and cheese (he's from WI, cheese is a MUST) or something to hold the BB over until dinner.
I want a boy because DH loves remote control cars/planes and ATV's and I can just see DH and his little shadow enjoying all that stuff together... He wants a girl since his family hasn't had a girl for two generations and he said a little girl can do all that stuff with him too... So true! We'll both me ecstatic with a healthy baby no matter the gender...
Had my ultrasound today and it's a GIRL!!! DH is SO excited and MIL can't contain herself SIL is already out shopping for girl's clothes... Everything else looks absolutely normal and no additional testing needed due to age 35+ at this time. YEAH!
Congrats kare bear. I'm also having a little girl. My name is Chelsea, i'm 18 and also, 18 weeks prego. I found out the sex of my baby at 15 weeks. Anyone else find out this early? Oh yeah, and i absolutely love feeling my baby move. She is so random with her movements and I was wondering. Does anyone else ever feel like you're going to throw up when your baby moves? I'm due June 15. Anyone else due on that day?
Oh yeah, kare bear. I am empathize with you about the little girl thing also. My fiance's mother has wanted a little girl all of her life. She got two boys instead and had two miscarriages trying for a girl. Chad's brother also has two boys and he isn't having anymore children. I am also very honored to be giving his family a little girl. My family isn't too excited, though. My entire family hasn't had a new baby boy in 17 years!!!! Well, maybe next time, huh?
"Does anyone else ever feel like you're going to throw up when your baby moves? I'm due June 15"
Sorry it was a typo....I'm actually due June 25
So far I don't feel much movement... The U/S showed she was pretty wiggly, but while I can feel the weight of the baby shift from one side to the other at times, I don't feel many flutters or any kicks. Hoping that comes soon
I am preg with # 2. I am 5 mo and am having a girl June 15th.
I can feel her move from side to side or when she decides to do cartwheels in my tummy but other than that, not much else yet.
