"I love you guys"

 That's what my hubby said to me last night before nodding off to sleep. *sigh*

It's so wonderful to start coming out of the "fog of 2009" and I am really starting to embrace all that is pregnancy and the thought of a baby joining our family is really starting to feel more likely. 

Sorry I haven't posted in a while -- I was in Vancouver last week for work and it was crazy busy and extremely tiring. But all went well and I'm so glad my plane ride was uneventful.  I made sure to get up every hour to stretch and walk around - 4.5 hours wasn't too bad at all. Again, thanking God that He was watching over us! 

So here we are at 18 weeks and I've been doing well. I am definitely starting to feel the flutters more frequently now (and they are below the belly button area) so this time I'm pretty sure it's not gas and that it is, indeed Sprout wiggling around in there. Usually, before I drift off to sleep, I place my hand over the area where I think Sprout is to wish him/her goodnite and to keep on growing. Last night, I felt multiple flutters/taps and it totally made me smile! I wanted to tell DH about it but he was sound asleep already, lol. 

Let's see what other new things. I'm starting feel uncomfy after I eat too much, and I've also had the lovely first time experience of heartburn this week. Man, can I tell you how much heartburn sucks! I couldn't even wear my bra properly yesterday because I felt like I couldn't breathe! 

I met with my midwife for the first time this past Tuesday and she is great. I even got to hear Sprout's heartbeat again! Which was a lovely surprise and so very comforting. I go back in another few weeks, after we get back from our vacation in San Francisco and then I believe every 4 weeks after that. 

The Big Scan is tomorrow at 3 in the afternoon - please pray for us that everything is growing right on schedule with Sprout!  We are sticking to not finding out the sex (although DH seems to be reluctant in that - even though he was the one for it in the beginning! Now he wants to find out but I want to put my foot down on this one :) 

Will update again after tomorrow's ultrasound.  Hope everyone is well and if you please can, say a prayer for Janet from Trust in God.  She is on bedrest right now and her cerclage is holding her baby girl in but she doesn't know for how long.  Power of Prayer ladies!


  1. Good to hear from you. Hope all goes well with the scan tomorrow!

  2. Congrats on 18 weeks. Seems like it's flying by!! I'm so glad that you can feel the flutters now. SO wonderful. (Those ones sound like they're definitely the "right" ones. :)

    Hoping the next ultrasound is great, and I totally agree with not finding out the sex. We didn't with D, and it was SO fun at the end!!

  3. Feeling my little guy wiggle around down there is my favourite part of every single day. Enjoy your ultrasound - you'll see amazing things!

  4. Wow 18 weeks!! It's so weird how time seems to fly with everyone else. Feeling baby girl move in the very beginning has to be by far my favorite part of the whole pregnancy! I commend you on not finding out the sex. I wish I had the So incredibly happy for you!

  5. 18 Weeks??!! ALREADY??? So happy for you... still ;) I will be thinking of you tomorrow, can't wait to hear the update!

  6. Yay for movement! This sounds like it's really it! If so, isn't it such a phenomenal sensation!?!? Praying for you!

  7. flutters....18 weeks...this is all good news!! Thinking of you.
