It’s been an exciting week. I was beginning to get nervous about not feeling the baby move. They say you might be able to detect something as early as 16 weeks and I was into my nineteenth. But then the past few days, sure enough, these little blips and rolls started tickling my belly. It’s super subtle – sort of like when a carbonation bubble in a can of soda hits the side. Subtle and delightful.
We’re now into our 20th week. Halfway there. She’s 12 ounces and continues to have a strong heartbeat. All of her organs and limbs are developing seemingly fine. It gets more and more exciting by the day.
