Do you know what this week means, friends? We are officially caught up! I'm technically in my 19th week right now, and these posts recap the events of the previous week. I was starting to think we would never get here, but we made it!
After my not-so-favorite series of events last week, week 18 more than made up for it. On Thursday evening I was driving home from work and felt the baby kick! It was a quick, obvious little pop just below and to the right of my belly button. Then a few moments later, two more little kicks close to where the first one was felt. The next day I noticed a few more while sitting at my desk. Eeeep! The baby was really kicking!
Mr. Fix-It was also excited, but a teeny bit jealous that baby and I were getting to have such a fun interaction. He was in Boston for a few days last week and felt extra far away. I told him I didn't think he'd be able to feel any baby kicks for a few more weeks, but surprise!, he was able to feel some just a few days later.
Something kind of not-awesome did happen this week. While driving to work one morning I got rear-ended. It wasn't bad AT ALL - we were actually excited about finally getting some work done on our slightly beat up bumper - but yeesh! This kind of thing makes you realize that you can do your best to stay safe and healthy but sometimes life just gets you. Thank goodness it wasn't worse.
All in all, things are great. I've been feeling like myself - no crazy cravings, no real "symptoms", just a growing belly! Keep doing your thing, baby!
