We went to the doctor this week to check up on Amelia. She looks great! We got to see her curled up in her little ball. Amelia threw her feet up over her head so far that her knees touched her nose and mouth! Even the sonogram technician remarked that she is crazy! She weighs 1 pound and 2 ounces, and the doctor said that everything looks great. I'm gaining the amount of weight that I should and I'm measuring right where I should be.
Amelia twists and turns a lot and is pretty active, but she likes to stay curled up inside of me. I am getting to feel her more and more as she moves around and kicks now and then. She usually chooses nighttime to play, of course - which will give me a whole set of obstacles to tackle when she is born! I thought feeling a baby would be kind of a weird Alien-like experience, but it really doesn't bother me for the most part. It's comforting knowing that she is growing and getting bigger, and I would much rather have her in there than a terrible bout of gas (hahaha...and I know as she gets bigger it will be much more uncomfortable, but for now I'm enjoying it).
Overall, I'm feeling pretty good. This past week I started showing really well and I'm glad I'm moving past the "is she or isn't she?" stage. I'm trying to stay active and be healthy, which can be hard when the hormones go to work. I've been doing FitMama Salsa, which I'm sure Jeremy will tape at some point and post on Facebook for the world to see. It really entertains him.
We're both getting ready for school to wind down and to move in our house once school ends. Please pray that we can move in on time, and that God will continue to keep our little Amelia healthy and strong!
