I'm 19 weeks today! I started feeling the baby kick 2 weeks ago. I thought that I felt it at 16 weeks, but the feeling was much different. At 16 weeks, it felt like a constant pushing against my stomach. But, at 17 weeks it felt more like popcorn popping. It was a great feeling and very comforting. I started to feel the baby move more regularly, especially after I'd eaten. This happened for 4 or 5 days and then went away for 3 days. Of course, I started to freak out and worry that something was wrong. It wasn't until yesterday that I started feeling the baby again. It was a great relief. It's been really fun to talk to the baby. One night he or she wouldn't stop kicking me and we had to have a little talk before I could go to sleep.
We go in for the big ultrasound on October 2nd and we'll be finding out the sex of the baby that day! We're excited to paint the room and get everything ready for him or her. I'm really looking forward to calling the baby by his or her name. We're taking a whole crew with us to the ultrasound. My mom, my mother-in-law and my sister are going with us. I'll let you know when we find out.

Isn't it nice that my husband always cuts the top
part of my head off of these pictures?
49er's are playing in the background. He had to get
back to his game ;)
