You are amazing!

I just had to write more about our amazing child. I can't believe how in love I am!!

Last night Kevin and I were watching t.v. Kevin is still trying every night to feel his baby move but our little one isn't quite strong enough yet. But....last night made the waiting worth it! Kevin was laying with his head on my lap facing the belly. He had his had on the belly and was waiting patiently. So....I started talking to the little one and felt a few little movements but nothing Daddy could feel. Then Kevin started talking and our little one went nuts! Kicking and moving all over the place. Unfortunatly the kicks weren't strong enough for Kevin to feel but he lit up when I told him the baby could hear him and that was what was making out little on move! So for like 30 min everytime Kevin said something baby Faux would take off.

I have been feeling our baby move for a few weeks now and it still amazes me. Everyday our little one gets stronger and bigger. It brought tears to my eyes last night watching Kevin and his child interact for the first time. I am so thankful for everything that God has given me and for the blessing in our lives. I'm sure I'm being a bit mushy but I fear that it may only get worse!

We have another appointment on April 12th and we will hopefully be finding out soon whether its a boy or girl! Have a great day!

20 week check-up

What a wonderful doctors appointment we had yesterday! My mom came with me and she loved hearing her grandbaby's heartbeat! My blood pressure is down to 122/62 and baby F's heartbeat is at 148. The dr. called baby F a little ornery because he/she kept moving around and kicking when we were trying to get the heartrate! My swelling is normal and will only get worse as the pregnancy progress. This means that I need to increase my fluid intake even more and keep my feet up as much as possible. We were a little disappointed that yet again we don't get an ultrasound, but how can I trade baby's health and my health for that!

Baby F is kicking like crazy! I feel movement several times a day and it still amazes me! Daddy has been trying to feel baby move this week but it doesn't seem to be working. Everytime Kevin touches me, baby F quits moving! Could he/she be a little stubborn like mommy? Kevin and I are still holding our ground on this being a boy! I hope we can find out soon but if not I guess we will just be surprised!!

Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we embark on the last half of this pregnancy. I will post a new picture soon!
