Thumps and Bumps - 18 wks 4 days

Monday, January 12, 2009

So I realized middle of last week that I'd been feeling the baby move all week. I get lots of thumps down low on my belly and a few near my belly button. I thought the first movements I felt would be more subtle but some of these thumps are hard enough I can feel on the outside with my hand. It's quite sporadic so far and I haven't been able to time it so that Hubs can feel it yet.

Babycenter says: Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long (about the length of a bell pepper) and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead.

I just ordered two belly bands from CutieFruity! I can't wait to get them because just last week I hit the point where I can't button my jeans anymore and I have to loosen my belt to sit at my desk. Then every time I get up I have to tighten my belt or give everyone quite a show... :)
CutieFruity's gotten a lot of good reviews and her belly bands are very inexpensive at $10 each, can't wait to try them myself!
