16w2d

Maybe it's just my imagination, but I *think* I felt a little something last night when I was laying in bed.... I had both hands on my belly, just kinda feeling around. All the sudden, I swear I felt this little tiny tap on the back of my hand. I told my husband and he goes, "Isn't it a little early?" I told him that around 16 weeks you can start feeling quickening, so who knows. I'm sticking with the fact that it was our baby in there!

When I was feeling around on my belly, it seems like the left side is a little harder... I wonder if the baby is more to that side, and that's what I'm feeling. The right side of my belly is alot softer. Maybe it's due to the fact that I tend to sleep on my right side. The baby probably doesn't like feeling smashed in there? heh... you never know. Yet another thing I wonder about.

Not much else to tell about... my appetite is back with a vengeance,though I still have to force myself to eat sometimes. Odd, I know. While grocery shopping the other day, I had this sudden craving for Tostitos and Salsa con queso. A little spicy, yes... and that's not me! I'm more of a mild kinda girl. But darn, I could kill a jar of that stuff right now. Weird. Not to mention, the hubby likes it too, so we're gonna be competing for the rest of the jar. And the pregnant girl better win. haha....

I find myself checking my belly out in the mirror everytime I'm in the bathroom... it's just such an amazing feeling knowing that there's a little tiny person growing in there. It's finally hitting home that "Wow, in a little over 5 months, I'm going to have a baby." I've been checking out the baby bedding sites and all kinds of pregnancy sites... I get more excited with each day.

Well, I'm going to go spend some time with my husband... have a great day :-)

Isn't it just the coolest thing to see your belly getting bigger?! I am lucky that I think I am still in the not too big that I am cumbersome size, even though I am only a couple weeks from the 3rd trimester!

I too have cravings for spicy stuff. I think it is a preggo thing!

Hey hun! You're probably feeling the baby move. I doubt you can feel it from the outside yet...but it is possible. I started feeling it myself at about 15 or 16 weeks. Then Toby was able to feel it around 17 or 18 weeks. Now it moves all the freaking time! ;)

My left side is actually harder than my right side. I'm not sure if thats where the baby is or it could be the way our uterus tilts or something. I doubt there in there 100% straight.

Go read my blog! We went for the ultrasound yesterday. The sex is revealed and I put up some pics!

I can't believe you have to wait till 23 weeks. We found out at 18w 5d. You need to see if they can move it up!

It's so exciting!

Love,
Kristen
