23 weeks. 5 days.
Today I experienced a great milestone!
This afternoon, at work, after eating strawberries, I sat at my desk and felt little Lukas moving around in my belly. I felt him move so much that it caused me to look down at my belly. When I did, I could see my belly moving up and down where he was kicking. I got so excited! I just stared while he continued kicking.
Too late, I reached for my phone to make a video for Osiris. By that time, little Lukas had calmed down and stopped moving around as much.
I tried to show Osiris after we both got home from work. Lukas wasn’t kicking as hard as he was after strawberries but he still managed to get a good kick in so his daddy could see.
It’s so funny how my belly looks when I contract my abdominal muscles. As I was lifting weights this afternoon, my abdomen contracts and my round belly turns into a cone, and you can see where the baby actually is. It’s so cool!
I love it!
