Growth check today… heartbeat still strong at 143, estimated baby size is 2lbs and 6 oz… that sounded big for me at 27 weeks, but I’ve since been told it’s normal range! Baby’s developing well, still very active, but already over the pics and didn’t cooperate for any today 🤣
Oh kiddo, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet 😇
How big was your baby when they arrived?
So there I was, laying on the acupuncture table, halfway through a treatment; calm, relaxed… almost asleep!
And then this crazy chill came over me. AND THEN… for the very. first. time… I felt the baby move! And then again… and again… 6 times total, and yes it’s subtle compared to those crazy kick/punch videos people show, but there was no mistaking that!
How far along were you when you felt your baby move for the first time? I just hit 21 weeks today!
It’s still a magical time, though it was a little more magical as a child (you know, by child I mean someone who has no responsibilities and doesn’t get caught up in the hustle and bustle of holidays!)
We’re going out to eat for dinner tonight with family, and then just hanging in, enjoying our first Christmas Eve as a married couple, and our last in this house (we are moving in January!)
Saw this poem once and I really liked it. I actually can’t wait to have children to share it (and many, many other things!) with!
What do you do for Christmas Eve? We usually do dinner and then hit some friends houses, but everyone is scattering this year!
