the motion

so i was lying on bed this afternoon - in the past 4.5 months i have discovered the lost art of napping (where has it been all my life??) and I felt the baby move for the first time! It felt almost like a once off heartbeat at the bottom of my stummy. I waited a bit, got impatient, prodded the stummy a few times, and voila. More of those little pulses. YAY! What an incredible feeling!!

why with the peeing? Ugh.
I haven't really peed any more than usual until today. But today has made up for the last 4 months. CRIKEY.
Ok, i guess it makes sense, if bambino's total length is about 18cm and I saw the teeny beginnings of a bump for the first time today only, then I guess some squashing of internal organs is inevitable. But peeing is so painful. Not literally, I just mean its annoying.
There is a bunch of stuff i could say but for fear of scaring people off this blog I will keep it to myself at this stage. Lets just say, I am starting to gain empathy for some of the trials that the elderly must endure.

16 weeks

So I am now going on 17 weeks. YAY.
all is going well and I'm getting off lightly still. Had my scan on Monday and it was cool. And got all my blood tests back and all seems well so yay.
Still feeling good and reckon my tummy has expanded maybe. Not sure... all my clothes still fit fine, but my shape is a bit different.
The baby is about 14cm from head to bum so add in the legs and that is frikken HUGE!!!
starting to have dreams about labour and stuff. heebies.
