I’m 16 weeks pregnant today. For dinner, I ate a huge salad- a spring mix, cucumber, tomato, sliced almonds, shredded mozzarella, hard-boiled egg and a homemade balsamic dressing. It was delicious. I guess our baby thought so too, because just now I felt him for the first time, for sure. It felt like someone was lightly flicking me from the inside, way down low in my abdomen.
After seeing all the rolling around, punching and kicking BBW2.0 (Baby Wilhelm 2.0) was doing at my 15 week ultrasound, I know that my days of these sweet, gentle reminders are numbered. Soon (as if my growing belly wasn’t reminder enough), I’ll be internally bombarded by my growing knock-em-sock-em robot. And if he’s anything like his sister, I’ll have his twice daily hiccups to look forward to, as well. It’s all coming back to me- the good and the bad. But today, I’m just focusing on how good it is. Sweet baby boy.
