I can't believe that we're here!

Finally, after the last year of sadness and disappointment I'm halfway through! I'm nervous as all get out about tomorrow... there's still some part of me that doesn't quite believe that all of this is going to work out. I'm afraid that we're going to see something wrong with the baby. It's irrational. I have no reason to think there's anything wrong. I'm feeling movement, though not as much as I'd like yet.

Agh... one more day of nerves and anxiousness, about this particular thing anyway!

With DS I did not feel movement until sometime after 20 weeks. Now I'm closer to the end, so it's different, but it took me a long time to get here. I always been scare before every Dr's apointment.
I'm exciting for you tomorrow!

I started feeling more movement just within this past week and I'm 22 weeks. Before that I was just feeling him if I was still and thinking about it. Now I feel him every couple of hours no matter what I'm up to.

I talk myself into fearing the worst before every ultrasound, so I completely understand. I bet it'll all go wonderfully!! Can't wait to see pics!!

omg Becky i can't believe you're already half way done with your pregnancy Good luck tomorrow - i was ungodly nervous with Savannah's (despite a half dozen early u/s that were fine) so i understand the nerves. Take it one minute at a time and everything will be perfect - i can't wait for your update tomorrow!

Wow, I can't believe you are already half-way there~! 20 weeks is a very exciting time and the anatomy scan is always so amazing to witness. I hope everything goes well for you - don't worry about movement too much, the baby will get very very active!

Daily movement didn't start for me until around 22-23 weeks.

Woot, woot!! Can't wait to hear what you are having! I was really nervous for my anatomy scan too this time around after the losses. And every pregnancy is different as far as movement goes. With Josiah (SUPER active baby in the womb), I felt the first movement super early at 11 weeks. With Jamison, the movement has been way less crazy, and I didn't really feel him consistently until around 18-20 weeks.

Becky I'm so excited for you. It seems like your pregnancy is going so fast, although I'm sure that it doesn't seem that way to you. It's completely normal to feel the way you are feeling. I even felt that way in my first pregnancy and that was before I has suffered a loss.

I can't wait to hear your good news tomorrow!!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
