Yup... that is exactly what they feel like.. and now JOSH knows! He was able to feel Lil Bit's lil thumps last week! We are also able to see those lil thumps through my belly now! It is so amazing. I just stare forever at my belly sometimes laying on the couch watching!
Here is a 17 week belly shot.
God bless the Bella Band. I am NO where near the size of even the xtra small maternity jeans... I tried several on and they were swimming on my lil legs and bum still! So Im just getting some serious usage out of my normal jeans and my Bella Band. I imagine I'll just go up in jean size and not really need maternity jeans til my legs and bum start to fill out toward the end. I had to go get some new kackis for work on Friday's... I grew out of my other ones in the hips. Couldn't pull them over my hips anymore...So I got a pair at Target... Jrs. size 5. Still have some room in them to grow but they still look like they fit too...My jeans I could use another pair or 2 in a bigger size... prolly a 5 too... but I'll hold out for a lil longer. I got some more shirts for work for the fall.. just some good solid long sleeve shirts from Target w/some room for my growing belly. Things are moving right along... I've gained 11 lbs so far. Nice and gradual. Doing some light weight lifting in the gym 2 days a week... just some arm, back, shoulder and leg workouts... to make sure to keep my posture in check w/this growing belly. Walking 2 other days of the week. Most of the time eating Josh under the table now! He cracks up at how much Im eating now! haha
I just love this photo...I had Josh take it so I can document him feeling Lil Bit's thumps for the first time! Notice the little mole on my belly button... haha Should be funny to see how that lil mole looks in about 3 months! haha
And notice the pants unbuttoned! haha Love that bella band!
So that is the latest Lil Bit and Mama update...
Feeling tiny lil thumps as I type...I love it.
Oh, Josh's new job... he is working for the Southern Baptist Convention in Nashville. He is really enjoying it! He is working with some pretty amazing people and will have some wonderful opportunities!
Nothing else new really to update... Just been really soaking this all in... being able to really feel Lil Bit has been a HUGE thing... when we first found out we were pregnant, we talked about what would make it all feel so "real"... and feeling Lil Bit move was what we said... so now that it's here... it's been something we are trying to really soak in and cherish.
Have a blessed week!
