WEEK 11 | MONTH TWO | BABY FIG
FRIDAY MAY 27TH
Up north again!! After buying a new vehicle and leaving 3 hours later than planned, we finally arrived. Its good to be up here again. Tomorrow...I get to get tell my brother and his girlfriend the news. It'll be a good day.
But back to the vehicle. Mike and I talked about needing a new one soon to provide more room for the new baby, but Mike's are breakage forced us into an early purchase. But its done and over with and we have our new, slightly larger vehicle. I'm more relieved than anything. We'll figure out the money stuff, the payments and what not. Everything happens for a reason.
SATURDAY MAY 28TH
I didn't tell them today! I just couldn't find the right moment. Tomorrow. Today i felt good at least, not much sickness. I think its the fresh are, the peacefulness, the up-and-at-em mentality. I'm not just sitting around. My body needs to be moving. I'm sure that's why i still feel "off" at work. I managed to take my picture this morning. It was obviously not taken in my usual spot, but at least i got one since i couldn't get one last week while i was up here. Not much has changed yet.
SUNDAY MAY 29TH
So here we were, sitting on the dock...me, my brother, his girlfriend, their beautiful little 18-month-old daughter running up and down from the beach to the boat and back. It was a beautiful day. They started asking me about our new vehicle and i told them it was a sudden thing but ok since we talked about upgrading soon. That was my perfect moment. I added "by the way, speaking of that, I'm pregnant." My brother was really surprised! "You are??" he asked. His girlfriend was nearly screaming with joy. She was giggly and beside herself. I was loving her excitement. She kept saying "now i want to see if there's a bump!" When we finally stood up to head back in she put her hand on my tummy, patted it and smiled. It was a tender and wonderful moment. Glad i waited.
THURSDAY JUNE 2ND
So i'm sitting at my desk, minding my own business, working up a storm, when i suddenly feel this pop in my abdomen that stopped me in my tracks. It wasn't the strength of it that made me pause, as it was quite subtle and almost dismissive. But I couldn't move. I had to stay still and see if another pop would surface. It did! And another, slightly to the left of the other two pops. All three we at the level of my belly button. Was it gas? I didn't feel a tooter coming on, nor any pops traveling downward. Just those three.Could it have been uterine stretches? Could've been, but that still would've been the first of them that made me stiff. Maybe, just maybe i felt my little tiny Fig Baby. I admit it would be pretty early, 6 weeks earlier than my other two's firsts recordable kicks, but i think its possible!!! Before i get my hopes up, I'm gonna observe further. :)
