I can't believe that next week I will be 6 months along or 24 weeks! Time is just flying by and I feel awesome!
At 23 weeks I have now gained a whopping 5 pounds!
You can totally see the cute little bump!
So my blog last week caused a little bit of a stir. lol I felt like I totally popped and I got so many people say they couldn't see the bump! I promise it is there, and if you really know me, you know I don't normally look like this! I feel like I am in the awkward "is she pregnant or just gained a couple pounds in the mid section" stage. lol
Here are a couple shots just before going swimming on Friday.
There is no hiding the bump in a swimsuit!
I went to the doctor the other day and she told me that when I went for my ultra sound they found that I have an anterior placenta. For those who don't know, an anterior placenta simply means that your placenta is positioned on the front wall of your uterus (womb). I thought by baby was a big kicker, but apparently I don't even feel the brunt of it! In order for me to feel kicks from my little girl, she has to also kick through the placenta so I only feel the really big kicks and wiggles.
Oooo. And Jason felt her kick yesterday for the first time. I have been trying to have Jason feel her move and kick for a while now. Every time she moved a ton I ran to get Jason, but by the time he put his hand on my stomach, she stopped... Silly Girl! But when he finally got to feel her move for the first time last night, he said it was really neat to feel his little girl growing and wiggling around. It definitely made the whole pregnancy more real for me.
