Playing a game with Baby!

Friday, March 28, 2008

Yesterday, Brittany had a routine check-up at her OB/GYN. The visit lasted all of five minutes. Brittany was weighed (she actually lost 2 pounds) and the doc listened to the baby's heartbeat. About 120-140 beats per minute by my count. So everything is pretty normal. No sonogram, so no definite answer on the baby's sex.

Going to bed was a pretty normal routine, and we felt around Brit's tummy to see if we could feel the baby moving. She can now feel where the baby is when it moves around. She says that her tummy gets harder, or more firm around the location where the little one is jostling about. And last night she was quite active. Brittany can push certain areas of her tummy to get the baby to shift around, and we actually felt his/her head/leg bump up against Brit's tummy several times! I even saw her belly pop up on one of them! It was really cool! In about a month I know it will be non-stop, but these beginning moments are really fun!

So last night, about 2am, I woke up because I wasn't comfortable. I realized I didn't have the third pillow I needed to sleep well. You see, I have to have 3 pillows when I go to bed. One to lie my head on, and one on each side of me. I toss and turn alot. Brittany had gone to eat dinner with her co-dance teacher rather late last night after watching some of her middle school students do a drill team performance. By the time she got home, I was asleep. So I never got a chance to steal that extra pillow from her! (Don't worry, she doesn't mind...she only uses one pillow)

Anyway, my little search for the pillow woke Brittany up. By waking her up, I made her realize she was really hungry. So, we decided to try and go back to sleep quickly so she wouldn't have to get up to find something to eat. I cuddled close and put my hand firmly on her belly and we closed our eyes. About a minute later, I felt a small little poke underneath my palm. It was distinct, and felt as if someone had flicked me from inside her tummy. My eyes immediately shot open and I kept my hand pressed firm. I didn't tell Brittany in case it was just her stomach rumbling. But sure enough, I felt 4 more little pokes within about 2 minutes. I then woke Brittany (which startled her) and asked her if her stomach was grumbling or if she could feel gurgling in her stomach. She said no, and I told her I thought I had felt the baby! I held my hand to her stomach again and got 2 more little pokes. Everyone of these little jabs was in the exact same spot! I was getting really excited and I made Brittany feel where I had, and told her to make sure she was holding her tummy firmly. She didn't feel anything :( So she resigned herself to going back to sleep and I put my hand back and got one more little poke before Brittany said I was keeping her up. Haha. So, I went back to sleep. Slowly, of course, because I was way too excited.

Now, I know that it may or may not have been the baby. But it was a pretty distinct feeling. It didn't feel like her stomach was gurgling. It mas more like a little flick. The first was very distinct, and by far the strongest. The other ones were very small...some of them so light that I could barely feel them! But they were all in the same place, and happened pretty close in time to one another. I know at 15 weeks the baby is active, but feeling the movements it is making are supposed to be very hard, or not very likely. So take it for what you will, but it definitely has me smiling this morning!

Welcome to our family site! Brittany and I want to keep all our family and friends updated on everything that's been happening, so we are channeling our energies to this site to keep everyone informed! Everything with the house is going great, and we are almost done with all those 'little' chores that have kept us busy for the past 3 weeks. Brittany is adding her little touches to the house, giving it a very warm atmosphere. I love it!

Everything with the baby is going fine too, and we have another OB/GYN appointment this Thursday. Just another regular check up. Brittany has also had her first true craving. Crab Cakes! We had just finished eating a huge meal at Mi Cocina's when she turned to me and said, "I want crab cakes!" She continued to obsess over them until we were in bed and I was falling asleep. Sadly, this is not an item I could pick up at Walgreen's on our way home, so she had to do without. Don't feel bad for her though, she got to satisfy her craving at Easter brunch, where crab cakes were a-plenty. Personally, I think she's going to crave a big, fat pickle before this is all over!
