Last night, around midnight I still couldn't fall asleep. Paul is crashed out next to me and I decided to see if I could get my baby to move. I slowly pushed on each side of my belly... nothing. So, with both hands I sort of sloshed the uterus back and forth a little to see if I could wake him up. Then I felt a very solid movement in the middle of my belly. It was followed by one more identical movement. I gasped because I really didn't think I was going to get a reaction from him. But I am sure it was some sort of a kick because it was unlike anything I have felt from within.
I didn't know whether to wake up Paul or not. I was crying from excitement and I lightly placed my hand on his face for a second and I heard his deep breathing seize. I waited a second or two and asked, "Oh, are you awake?" He kind of groaned, I explained what happened and he put his hand on my belly. Of course I couldn't get the little guy to do it again, but he was excited anyways. So much fun!
We have decided on a bedding set. There are so many to choose from (so many are way too expensive!). But we found a simple one from Target that will suit the wall color nicely. It definitely says BOY without over doing it. We have the dresser/changing table unit in pieces all over the nursery floor. I think we're both waiting for the little helper elves to assemble it for us! HA! I will get a full photo of the nursery when we get that far. It's great to finally know what we're having! Only 20 more weeks to go!!
