This past weekend was eventful in my pregnancy journey- we found out our little geek is a BOY as Michael revealed in the previous blog entry and I felt the baby for the first time during Saturday night! From what I read, during the 18th week of pregnancy, the little geek is now extremely mobile, at least compared to me lol (actually I am still pretty quick and active, no complains yet although I do feel I am slowing down a little…). So the baby is busy inside there yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, sucking and swallowing. Those first ‘flutters’ were very interesting to feel- I was sleeping so I was semi-conscious when I woke up with these weird butterfly feelings in my stomach. I realized what it was and I think I went back to sleep smiling.
Baby's now the size of a sweet potato according to ‘The Bump’ weekly update I get or the size of a red pepper as ‘babycenter.com’ claims. Either way that’s kind of small in my opinion to really justify the extra 10 pounds I put on already. I don’t think I overdo it with food, I hope it’s just our junior growing and developing in there. Both of us are pretty tall, so I assume this baby will inherit some of our genes.
Now that we know it’s a boy, I am curious to see what a mix of Feli-Michael will look like:)
