So I think I felt the baby move last night. Am I positive? NO WAY.
I’ve heard it’s more difficult for first time moms to know when the baby moves because they don’t know what they are feeling for.
BUT! If it was the baby moving, it was really cute. J and I were lying in bed, just about to turn the lights out, and we were talking. And it was while J was talking that I started feeling a little sensation in my belly. Now, it could have totally been gas, or even just organs and stuff moving around. But if it was the baby, the little guy or gal was moving because it was hearing daddy’s voice! Is that the cutest thing ever or what?!
J and I were talking about how he would like to try reading a story to the baby while he or she is still in utero, then see if the baby recognizes the story when he reads it after birth. I think that’s a really cute idea. I know babies can recognize songs when they are sung to them in the womb, but a story is a really fun idea too!
Anyone have any good suggestions for a story? I was thinking maybe Goodnight Moon, since I LOVED that book as a little girl. But it’s up to J since it will be his story.
In other baby news… Baby is developing fingerprints this week, along with a little layer of baby fat. Adorable! He or she is also really developing a sense of hearing. Loud noises can startle the little guy or gal. We’re almost to a full 17 weeks, and my next prenatal appointment is set for Tuesday the 25th.
