Nearly 21 weeks
Last night while resting my hand on my abdomen, I felt two kicks so strong and distinct that they made me gasp. It was when I was winding down to fall asleep so I grabbed Chris's hand hoping for more. Of course, it stopped at least until both of us tired of waiting. Regardless, it was so wild to feel it from the outside and inside.
I proceeded to dream of a baby who I was attempting to swaddle, much to their dismay. It "baby hulked" its way out of the swaddle every time I tried to wrap it up. Very cute and funny! It felt really real, too.
Every time I think I am starting to look pregnant, onlookers (family, friends, and acquaintances) inform me I do not. I guess I am not used to seeing a thicker-for-me middle so it seems so obvious from my vantage point. But there is plenty of time left for me to "look" pregnant. In the meanwhile, I will enjoy that I can still go to the gym and feel ease in my continued mobility.
