19 weeks...

and 2 days pregnant! I can't believe how much I already love this little baby wriggling away inside of me. It's crazy how fast motherly instincts kick in, cause I would already do or give up anything for this precious little one. Feeling it moving everyday is the biggest gift I have ever been given. I am so thankful to be able to conceive and carry a child. It really has made me look at things a lot differently and to just be greatful for everything in my life even when things get hard.

In a few days time hopefully we get to find out whether we are having a little boy or girl, and I can barley contain the excitement of knowing I will get to see my baby again soon. I am not looking forward to the part where I have to fill my bladder to point of explosion before I get the scan done though. Especially cause bubby seems to have found a new toy and likes playing the game of 'let's make Mummy run to the toilet by karate kicking her bladder'. So not looking forward to that game while sitting in the waiting room. Hopefully I won't embarrass myself before they let me go to the toilet.

Bubby is definitely getting stronger and stronger everyday. I feel so much more movement now then I did a couple of weeks ago and it is definitely more stronger. I love that slow pushing, rolling feeling on the side wall of my uterus. It makes me so happy yet feels so strange at the same time. I even got to feel a kick on the outside the other day. I was feeling little kicks inside so I pressed my fingers to the place it was kicking then all of a sudden I got this massive poke at my fingers. I couldn't believe it!! I was so shocked and happy. I really didn't expect to feel anything from the outside just yet. Hopefully Alex will get to feel it move soon too. He can't wait and neither can I.

I wonder if I would have wanted to know if I was having a boy or a girl back then? Probably couldn't resist knowing--hehe! Can hardly wait to find out what you guys will be expecting. :)

Oh--and that new game--it has only just begun--ROFL!

Hi Michelle,

I really enjoyed reading this post! I so can't wait to find out if your baby's a boy or girl and I am so happy that you can even feel it moving from the outside! I know Alex will be so happy when he feels it!

Love Brad!

Hi Rita! I don't think I could walk out without finding out the sex of the baby. I think it would kill me, lol. I am over calling it "it" all the time aswell, it's too special to be called an "it".
Yeah not looking forward to that bladder kicking game very much, lol. Thanks so much for commenting and following my blog! It was great to hear from you :)

Thanks Brad! Not long now till we find out, eeeeeep!!!

As you know, I loved being pregnant and it's a real joy for me to see you go through the process too, my darling daughter ~ xo

PS - Oh yeah, the bladder takes a real beating in the later months too. Lots of pelvic floor exercises needed after birth, that's for sure. lol
