Movement and a Great Book

So, I have anxiously been awaiting PJs first kicks. Over the past few weeks there were a couple times when I thought I may have felt something. However, I was not completely convinced. The last few days it has become unmistakable. It's the craziest feeling. It alternates between feeling like a little bug under my skin and when I assume PJ is flipping--like I just took a crazy dive on a roller coaster. I'm loving it. This is something I was really looking forward to. I'm a little worried about what it is going to feel like when PJ gets bigger but I think I am ready for it.

I also just finished a really great book. What.Alice.Forgot.  It's a chick-lit book about a women who forgets about 10 years of her life after an accident. That's not what hooked me though. Instead, the story about her sister, a fellow infertile, is what really drew me in. I had no idea that it had anything to do with infertility and found myself crying throughout much of the book. It was so well done though and very realistic. I kept thinking either the author has went through this herself or someone very close to her had told her their deepest secrets regarding IF. I highly suggest the book.

In other news, we are still deciding where to move next fall. We will make a decision by mid-april. I'm nervous, excited, and all those other emotions that go along with making a huge move. We've done it twice now though, so at least I have a small idea of what we are getting ourselves into.


  1. wow! that movement sounds incredible!! enjoy every moment!!


  2. how exciting!! I'm 29 weeks and still enjoying the movement. sometimes it's uncomfortable when he kicks certain organs, but sometimes the kicks feel like little tickles : ) I don't think it gets really painful until the very end.

  3. I love the movement. I tell my husband I wish it would move all day long.

  4. Congrats. I came across this board from someone else's board. I'm 31 going on 32 very soon and I have a balanced translocation as well. I have a healthy, happy 2 year old daughter who unfort. developed my BT too. Wish you the best with this journey. I'm currently pregnant with our 2nd child and get a CVS in a couple weeks to rule out any unbalanced translocation that could have happened. Our fingers and toes are crossed and my prayers are being said multiple times a day for the best.

  5. Awesome!! When baby gets bigger try and take a video of him/her squirming around in your belly.

  6. Feeling my babies move inside me was the best part of being pregnant by far. And I didn't ever find it uncomfortable, although it was pretty crazy towards the end watching them move (big movements) under my skin.
    Good luck with the moving decision. We're trying to decide if/where to move as can be really stressful.
