I Get A Kick Out Of You!

Peanut is kicking!! I love this new feeling. I thought I might have been feeling her kick for the last few weeks, but just wasn't sure. But this weekend I was sure! We spent the weekend in Tallahassee, visiting Brian's sister, Julie. It was a great weekend with Brian's family. The best part of it all though was feeling our lil' peanut kick and being able to share the moment with Brian and Julie. It took some patience, but they were both able to feel her kick too. Right now they are very sporadic and light, but I'm sure it won't be long before they are taking my breath away. :-)

Today marks the end of my 19th week of pregnancy. I can hardly believe that I am almost half way through! I am pretty sure that I am out of the vomit phase, which is wonderful! And my belly is growing every day! It's definitely becoming more and more real! I am still feeling the nausea on and off, but not nearly as bad as it once was. I am hoping to be able to stop taking Zofran in the next few weeks. I have cut down my dosage to just 1/3 of a pill every morning. At such a low dose, I'm pretty sure it's just a placebo affect, but I don't want to take any chances just yet. :-) One other change of late is the onset of pregnancy brain! It is no joke. Just now I noticed that my wedding rings weren't on my finger. I had absolutely no idea where they were. We spent a few minutes searching for them and ended up finding them in the car! I had taken them off to put lotion on and left them in the there! YIKES! I am never forgetful...this is definitely something new for me. Hopefully my brain will return to full function after this baby is born. HAHA
