18 Weeks: I Got Kicked!

April 2, 2012

Exciting things happened this weekend! I ate two kinds of chocolate dessert, and then I got kicked! It was so exciting! It started a wave-like feeling in the front of my stomach. Right up near the top of my uterus. I’m guessing that was the baby rolling around. And then I felt a little bump […]

5 Weeks: Adjusting To Pregnancy

Starting at the first moments of week 5, I’m beginning to feel a little bit of nausea. I don’t feel like I’m going to throw up – it’s more like a churning in my stomach that comes and goes. Definitely feels a bit like a hangover! I first noticed it on our last day in […]
