Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby’s finally big enough that you’ll be able to feel those movements soon.
So this is the big week, I find out in less than 24 hours if husib is going to be a boy or a girl. I can’t wait and I’m really nervous for some reason as well. I also think I felt movement yesterday, but it could have been gas as well,so who knows. Nothing else too new, work is good, we are thinking about moving to a bigger place, but we are still in the thinking phases.
