18 Weeks!!

So it's baby belly has definately popped :) haha and it seriously was over night. When people say it happens over night they seriously are not kidding haha! Anyways it is exciting. Last night I was awake all night because I was having crazy stomach pain that just would not stop. It was so tight and crampy and my lower back was killing me and I couldn't figure out why I was having such bad pain all of a sudden. But it kept me up all night because as soon as I would fall kinda asleep I would shift or move or something and it felt like the baby would move inside and it would just kill!! Than when I got up this morning is was still horrible. My stomach was so tight it was pulled flat and was seriously like a rock. It hurt to bend to get the shampoo in the shower or bend my legs to get dressed. It was crazy. But as the day went on it relaxed a little and around 10:30 I went to the bathroom at work and looked in the mirror and I couldn't believe it, my stomach was totally popped out. Bigger than it has ever been before. At lunch my mom was even shoked how much I had changed over night. So I am concluded that is what all the pain was about last night, my stomach was stretching and getting ready for the big showing I guess haha.

But the other exciting news is that I can feel my baby move :) I was laying in bed yesterday morning before church and all of a sudden I felt something. I told Kyle and he put his hand where I was feeling it but of course he couldn't feel anything. It was so light I didn't want to move because I didn't want it to stop. I wasn't sure if it was the baby forsure or not but as the day went on the feeling went from light gas bubble feelings to little flutter kick feelings! So I was pretty sure it was the baby! And than today when I was driving to work it all of a sudden felt like something poked me from the inside and than for the rest of today it did not stop. There was ever a minute around lunch time it went crazy for like a whole minute. It is very exciting but really weird at the same time. Just because it is a feeling that you cannot control and it just happens out of the blue. But I love it because I told Kyle it is just a daily confirmation that yes my baby is still alive and growing inside there!! I know I am only almost half way done and have a long way to go but I am just so excited to meet this new little person!! I can't wait to have my family grow! It is a life changing experience and I am so grateful to be able to have such a wonderful husband to share all the exciting moments with :) I love you Kyle!!

I'm so happy for you Liss! You really start to "feel" pregnant when baby starts moving. It takes a lot not to worry before then. I can't wait to see a picture of your popped belly!
