Fantasy of Trees

On Thanksgiving, my family and I went to the Fantasy of Trees, a local fundraiser for Children's Hospital. You can see that Peanut also wanted to be in the family picture. Only two days left until we know if it's a boy or a girl!

I finally felt the baby move! I think that I have felt it before, but just didn't know it. I started feeling it last night as I was laying in bed, trying to fall asleep. I felt more movement this morning around 4 a.m. Apparently, the baby doesn't know what bedtime is yet. Now that I know what it feels like, I feel movement all the time. I guess my doctor was right; I do have a very active baby. It is a big relief to know that there's actually someone in there!

My Little Acrobat

I had a check-up this afternoon and everything went really well. Except that I wasn't able to listen to my baby's heartbeat for as long as I wanted to (but then, I could listen to it all day). The Dr. had a hard time finding the baby (Peanut was hanging out pretty low), and as soon as you heard a bit of that "Wow, wow, wow" heartbeat, it was quickly followed by a "SWOOSH!" This happened a few times and then the Dr. begin to laugh. I asked her was was happening and she explained that the "SWOOSH!" I heard was the baby moving around from one place to another. She was laughing because Peanut was playing hide-and-seek with her. Every time she found the baby, he/she would take off. I'm not sure if womb behavior mimics the behavior of the child, but if so, I better get my running shoes on! Interestingly, I haven't felt any movement yet, but she said that was perfectly normal. I can't wait until December 1st when we hopefully find out the sex of the baby! Stay tuned...
