We've made it to the halfway point!!! 20 more weeks (give or take a couple) to go!
Things are going great. We had a very nice Christmas - very simple and peaceful and quiet with just the two of us, since it will be many years before we have another one like that! We are both very excited to have a little munchkin crawling around next Christmas. :)
Our little girl is now about the size of a cantaloupe. (I feel like my entire belly is the size of a cantaloupe right now!) She is swallowing a lot of amniotic fluid now, which is good practice for her digestive system. She's producing meconium, which will be her first bowel movement - hopefully not until after she's born!
Mom is feeling great. My uterus is about as high as my belly button now. We'll see if I've gained any more weight next weekend when I go in for my anatomy scan ultrasound. Other than the usual, I have nothing new to report. I'm still waiting to feel kicks, and I'm starting to get a little concerned that I haven't. I really haven't felt anything since those couple of nights of movement a couple weeks ago. If I'm not feeling anything by my ultrasound next weekend, I'm definitely going to ask about it. Hopefully everything is okay! According to my weekly emails, I should be feeling her kickboxing in there by now. Maybe she's just a gentle mover. I'm really looking forward to next week so I can check in on her again!
