20 weeks and the baby's dancin'!


Today, while I was at the hospital, in between surgical cases the BABY STARTED MOVING!!!

So clearly our lil one is a mover and a shaker.  It was seriously amazing.

This was the first time I felt it and I was freaking out - smiling and laughing and holding my belly and beaming and wanting to run up to everyone and put their hands on my stomach so they could experience it too!  I even whipped out my cell phone and started texting friends and family with the news!  It was such a magical moment.

I remember hearing friends talk about  this during their own pregnancies and not really thinking much about it - but I am overwhelmed now.  This whole pregnancy thing is miraculous.  It's big.  And incredible.  And so very special.  I never grasped just how powerful pregnancy is.  I love it more that I get to share it with my husband - he gets as excited as I do about these things.

AND - tomorrow we find out the gender of our lil one!! Such exciting memories we make everyday.


  1. Jes, that is so exciting. I am sure that with each milestone is feels that much more real.

  2. so exciting! on an unrelated note, i LOVE the bookshelf behind you...it is so well arranged, i think it could be in a magazine. :)

  3. I'm so excited for you! I love feeling my best friend's baby moving around in her tummy. Now it's 30 weeks it's doing some pretty massive kicks! I bets you guys are so excited about tomorrow! xx

  4. Exciting! And you look so cute. I agree with Emmalinda - neat bookshelf, especially the star. Also love the top you're wearing with the tie at the waist.

  5. I can't believe your already 5 months!...You looks so teeny tiny! Congratulations!

  6. OMG you look so cute I just want to squeeze you. So what's the mommy blog going to be called?
