I'm pretty happy about that, of course, and am overwhelmed (in a good way) by how smoothly (relatively speaking) everything has gone.
Of course, though, I have to admit something to you ladies. Tomorrow is our BIG u/s. We're not finding out what it is, but will see how everything is developing. That's how DH puts it. All I can think, though, is that we're going to find out if it's alive. I can't tell anymore if what I'm feeling is it because I've been incredibly gassy. I'm afraid that the little twitches are digestive or just a strange pulse jump (can't explain it) on my belly. I was supposed to have an appt in the morning before the u/s, but it was moved. I was going to have confirmation of a heartbeat. I'm terrified now that I'll see a dead baby on the screen...because...shouldn't I be feeling it a LOT more now at 20 weeks?!
I don't know. I've just been a nervous wreck for a couple of weeks. And other things have come up, so I'm under a lot of stress, anyway.
Send positive thoughts my way tomorrow. I want nothing in the world so much as to see a healthy, wiggly baby on the screen.
I know its hard, but try to relax and think good thoughts (easier said than done). I'll be praying for a wiggly baby for you tomorrow! Congrats on 20 weeks! I can't comment on movement, I haven't felt it yet myself. Good luck!
I'll be thinking about you today and hoping for a nice wiggly, hyper baby. I know what you mean about hoping it's alive, mine is later this week and I feel the same way. I am sure what you feel is the baby moving. Please let us know how it goes.
