week 24 day 3

So most recently, I've developed this odd burning pain in my upper left abdomen.  It burns after about 5 minutes of sitting down and it's not pleasant at all.  Sunday it burned almost all day and so I decided I should definitely go to the doctor.  Hoping that this was all because of pregnancy, I went to the doctor this morning and luckily I was right.  Seeing as I'm trying to make room for a baby, everything is getting squished and is causing my insides to become uncomfortably squished.  I can expect this to happen every pregnancy now.  Fun.

I am now able to feel the baby moving along my stomach now days.  It's a pretty odd feeling.  I'm still quite unsure as to whether I'm feeling a leg, arm, shoulder, or any other body part but I can feel her and it's amazing. 

Last night I was in a staff meeting and she was moving and squirming like crazy.  My guess is that the really hard kicks are actually kicks and the softer ones are punches, but I can't be sure 100%.  However, last night, I'm pretty sure she was kicking.  She was kicking at a nice steady pace and since it was distracting me from paying attention, I put my hand on my belly and tried to move her.  As I was moving my hand in and up, she started kicking like crazy with both legs.  I don't think she liked it much and I just let her punch and kick however she pleased for the rest of the meeting, as distracting as it was to see my stomach move every couple of seconds.

  1. I'm sorry about the burning. That's not fun at all. I love hearing about Katie moving around. It warms my heart...that sounds corny, but I definitely felt a warming sensation.
