It is so hard to tell at first, but I'm fairly positive I felt the baby move on Friday for the first time! It kind of feels like indigestion. I've felt the same kind of feeling a few time yesterday and today, too, so I'm thinking it is baby and not a tummy ache. Yay! You usually start feeling movement between 16 and 18 weeks, so that is pretty much right on track. If I remember correctly, Jim didn't get to feel Finn move until closer to 22 or 23 weeks, so that will still be a while.
Well, the Gophers home opener was far less than successful. Considering, Jim was actually in a pretty good mood when he got home. I think the three of us are going to go to the game next weekend...Finn's first Gopher football game. Should be fun!
Yesterday morning, Finn and I went over to auntie Kristine's to play for a while...she had Austin for the weekend. The boys had a good time trashing Grace's room! Oops, I should have offered to clean it up when we left, but I'm guessing Austin played with it some more. Austin just HAD to show Finn the lamas and donkeys at the neighbor's house. Finn thought they were cool, but wanted to get closer than we thought was safe. Didn't bring the camera, sorry!
Today, uncle John and aunt Kelsie came over for brunch and to watch a little football. Finn loved the extra attention and while he really likes Dixie (their black lab)...he doesn't want to get too close to her either. The face he makes when a toy gets too close is pretty funny.
Will baby #2 cooperate tomorrow so we can find out the sex? Only time will tell. Since Jim is traveling all week, thankfully, Kristine has agreed to miss part of a meeting in order to come with me. This is the first appt I'll have to bring Finn AND if we can find out the sex, I didn't want to be alone. Since aunt Kelsie is working at North Memorial (where the perinatologist offices are located), she might stop by if she has some free time.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
