Belly Flips

It is the most amazing thing to feel your little one flipping around inside of you!  Our little boy has been especially active tonight (the night I am writing this).  As of right now, the trend has been flips instead of kicks or punches.  I can feel something swipe across my entire stomach as I look down and it is all in flux!  What a blessed feeling to get these little updates from the baby telling you he is still doing good :-)  I love it!  The one thing that he does that gets me...those random kicks to the ribs.  OUCH!  But still worth it!

On top of that, I just reviewed my 20 weeks picture and flipped forward to the picture I just took (beginning of 30 weeks).  Wow, and I thought I was big back then.  Ha...what was I thinking!  So how much have I gained you might be asking...I am at about 20 pounds!  I feel like I am on track at this point to a healthy weight loss after the birth which would make me very, very happy!  Of course, I will have to wait a little while to see what really goes down lol.

All I know is I am definitely hitting the sore back and bones stage.  Every morning is a reminder of that.  I am having a small amount of trouble sleeping.  Mostly, I wake up and then can't get back to sleep for at least an hour.  That is no fun. soon as I feel him, I realize it is all totally worth it.  I can't wait to meet him!  I hope he is cute like his daddy ;-)
