Today was another milestone. Before I got out of bed this morning (no easy feat these days, since I've begun piling pillows around myself to keep from rolling onto my back at night- I'll discuss sleep another time), I felt a pretty dramatic nudge from Ishkabibble. Half asleep, I put my hand on my belly in the same spot, and Ishka did it again. For the first time, I felt the baby move from the outside. No repeat since those first nudges, so I wasn't able to share the sensation with C, but I'm sure that will happen soon. Ishka tends to be very active during and right after dinner, so I'll make sure C stays within arm's reach tonight.
EDD is in exactly 4 months, or 17 weeks from tomorrow. If anyone asks me what I'm thankful for this year, I'll rub my belly, smile and say, "The people in my life, even the ones I haven't met in person yet." And that includes YOU.
