A First Glimpse/Am I Crazy??

So remember when I posted that I was feeling bundle kicking?? Well I still think I am, but according to the ultrasound tech that is IMPOSSIBLE because I am only 13 weeks. Yes it is official.  I completely skipped a period and did not realize it for an entire month.  Funny how motherhood does that to you.  Anyway, back to the kicking...Maybe I am crazy? Maybe I break the mold? Where I feel the kicks is exactly where bundles arms and legs are....hmmm....who knows.  However, what we do know is that so far bundle is HEALTHY and developing perfectly :).  That makes my heart smile.  He/she has 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 hands, 2 feet, a developed stomach, and a heart that is beating away at 148 beats per minute (I am ignoring the wives tale about 150+ being a girl...still keeping my fingers crossed....don't let me know if the heatrate tale proved true for you....because I still have 4 more weeks to hope and pray that bundle does not have a thingy between its legs...).  Anyway...here are the 1st pics of my little 13 week bundle.  I mean it looks like a girl right??? :)

My little alien face.  Blue eyes?? I think so... :)
Legs (sorry about the quality...picture of a picture)

Official due date FEBRUARY 21, 2011.  My B-day is the 17th...do you think I will get a present?? :)

On another note...my first little bundle is not having a good week.  He is so uncomfortable and upset from what I think is teething.  It is so hard to know for sure.  He woke up off and on all night last night. He only wanted me.  He only wanted to sleep on me, or in our bed (which we do not do, because hubby and I get no sleep, and I am paranoid I will smother him all night).  Anyway, he has been cranky all day and has been attached to my hip.  He is trying to nap at this moment, and by nap I mean wake up crying every 10 minutes.  I feel so bad for him.  I am giving teething tablets, letting him chew on ice cubes that I hold in my hand (because I love him that much), drink ice water, and I have given him one dose of Tylenol (which seemed to help).  I hate that he is in so much pain, and there is really not much I can do.  His first two teeth did not bother him at all, but these next ones are another story, and I have no idea what teeth he is actually getting.  Pray that he feels better.  We were suppose to leave today for my hometown, but since I did not sleep last night that trip got pushed back till tomorrow.  Pray that we sleep tonight so we can drive safely tomorrow.

I felt my little one at 14 weeks and my OB said it was very possible. I think it's a difference of opinion, more than medical fact!

I remember feeling my little one around the same time as well. But then I didnt feel her again for 2-3 weeks, maybe it was gas or something?

I just found your blog, so cute. Congrats to you!! I felt my kids move at 14 and 15 weeks along, the ultrasound tech told me the same thing!!!

Katrina said...

exciting! I think it's possible you are feeling movement... maybe you just have a very active baby!
Congratulations again! I still think I am further along too, which would put me due the day after you!

It's possible! Second Babies usually come earlier! I was in labor with Mason my ENTIRE birthday {and the day before} I didn't have him until the day after though!

And I don't think it's impossible to feel it at 13 weeks. You know what it feels like to have a baby move so it makes sense!
