Quickening

Ok I will tell the story of my robotic arm.. Next post. Right now I am freaking out because I just felt the baby move for the first time tonight. C put his hand on my lower tummy and I felt it, like gentle waves rolling onto the beach.. His hand was still, it was crazy! Everytime I put my hand there nothing.. I can poke and prod at my stomach/uterus all day and baby ignores me but as soon as daddy puts his hand there baby starts up moving for him! Someone is a daddy's girl/boy/baby/seamonster..

Had another prenatal this morning and baby's heart is beating at 148 now. According to the old wives tale baby is now a girl. As opposed to last appointment when baby was at 134 and a boy. I joked to my nurse that the baby already has gender issues.. Poor thing..

How wonderful. Gabe loved to move when he heard Mr. Spit's voice.

ha ha like I said 12 weeks he was 176 maybe and last week at 20 weeks he was 146 and had a penis. there have been a bazillion studies that prove there is no correlation between heartrate and sex at all. How far a long are you now? and you just be careful what you wish for cause this guy now likes to have goal kicking/kung fu sessions when I mess with him now, in fact the sound of typing may be doing it today cause here he goes haha. all sounds good, I'm glad.
