Hello Jellybean!

It's official - we've got some movement.

It's been faint and tentative for a few weeks now, but with certainty I can now say that the little buddy is making him or herself known when possible. The best part about it is it feels like s/he gets a running (swimming) start on one end and then just pounds into the other side. Clearly, this one has a high activity level (as does his big and dad are going to be in trouble).

Jellybean still isn't big enough for this to be consistent or really apparent, but just feeling him/her there every now and then is a wonderful comfort. And another very significant milestone for us.


  1. Congrats on your 2nd trimester!!! Hope the next few months are clear sailing for you guys.

  2. Such a good feeling!! I remember the first time I felt Abby move--I was driving to Cincinnati and had to turn off the radio to so I could "feel more clearly."

    Do you have any feelings about gender yet? Did you know with Katie before your ultrasound? I'm weighing in now and saying that I think you're having another girl.

  3. I'm going way back and forth with this one on gender. I'm not as sick as I was with Katie, but that could be due to the medication I'm on now. And this one is really active, but so was she. I keep thinking it's a boy, but Katie really wants a girl.

    With Katie, I thought girl from the beginning and then convinced myself it was a boy (but I think that was subconscious because I was afraid of what my in-laws would do with a girl :).

    I had a dream it was a girl, so I'm going to have to go with that (even though I keep referring to Jellybean as "he").

    We should know the second week of July - I was excited to find out with Katie, but I think I'm WAY more excited to find out this time :)

  4. Congrats on your pregnancy! Hope things continue to go well for you.

    All the best!

  5. That's just the best milestone, isn't it? Congrat's on your pregnancy.

  6. Sounds wonderful! Can't wait for this :)

  7. Congrats on your pregnancy. Hopefully it will be less stressful now that you can feel jellybean move and know that he/she is alive and kicking. Will be following along and hoping the Lovenox helps you grow a big healthy baby!
