|{ Waiting For Movement }|

When you have a miscarriage, something like waiting for your baby move can be super hard.  I just wanted to feel the security of knowing he was still doing well enough to be moving around, but as the weeks passed I just wasn't feeling him.  Or at least I wasn't sure that I was feeling him.

I had been feeling something since about Sept 4th (I was about 19 weeks into my pregnancy) but I could never say for certain that it was the baby and not something else.  I had been told that my placenta was placed anteriorly so that it might take longer for me to feel him.  I talked to my doctor on Sept 24th and she assured me that if I thought I was feeling him, then I was feeling him.

It wasn't until Sept 27th (almost 23 weeks into my pregnancy) that I was positive the movement I had felt was my little boy.  I was sitting at the computer when I felt a little thump.  I placed my hand on my belly and felt him kick my hand! I was so excited.  I then watched my belly and actually saw him kick me as well! I told Jonathan right away, I just couldn't believe it! It was so exciting!!

I have been feeling him move daily since then and I just love it.  It is such a comfort to feel him and it's fun too.  I've been trying to get Jonathan to feel him but he always stops moving when he puts his hand on my belly.  Silly boy.  Hopefully he will get to feel him in the next few weeks!

I have been going into panic mode a bit.  I feel like we have so much to do and no time to do it.  I can't believe that I have less than 4 months to go! Not to mention the Holidays coming up, I just feel like time is going to slip by so fast.  Which is great! But also scary!!

My baby shower is going to be at the end of this month!! Two of my AMAZING friends are throwing it for me and I just can't wait! It's going to be so much fun!

  1. It's okay that it took so long. I started feeling things that I thought were baby around 19 weeks as well, but didn't feel confident that it was really the baby till about a month later, and even then wasn't completely sure. I finally decided that I was feeling the baby around 25 weeks. That's exciting that you are officially feeling him now though! Mine would do the same thing; I'd feel her moving, grab Ryan's hand, put it on my belly, and she would stop! Silly babies!
