Sol, sorry about the m/s but that's wonderful about what you're feeling and that you could share it with your dh! I have been wearing a lot of maternity things and I agree that it's definitely more pronounced in them. Dh took a picture of me in the park on Saturday with regular workout clothes on and it's ambiguous (is she chubby around the middle or pregnant?). I'll have to post soon on the belly thread.
Ithappened, I hope you enjoy the spring weather and some nice workouts. It sounds great that you'll return to an updated space!
Eleuthia, hope s/he's more cooperative at this 2nd try scan! Being kicked awake is pretty cool. I get up several times at night and realize that he's moving, but nothing that seems to have actually woken me up yet.
Ninetales, I'm also hoping I'm in a growth spurt because I woke up a few times lately hungry. That always seems to be a sign for me.
Waffler, you posted while I was (taking a long time to do it). Sorry about the touchy-feelie family. I know my mil would be like that if she were here. So far no one has approached my bump, though, but I am not really close to anyone where we live now. I still haven't experienced bh, but now that I've read more about them, I know what to look out for.
AFM, I have an ob appointment tomorrow (even dreamed about it last night; very strange dream). Dh and I went to Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby (the second was definitely superior) to register in person. Buy buy baby offers personalized sessions to review strollers and car seats, so we are going to take advantage of that soon and do some more preliminary research before we do that. It was fun, but also overwhelming.
We had been considering the arm's reach co-sleeper, but upon really looking at it, I am not really convinced. I think we may sidecar a real crib or have a real crib very close to the bed. What worries me about the arm's reach is that it is surrounded by cloth at the top and bottom and mesh on the sides. Anyone have any thoughts? Do those who use the cosleeper also have another place for the baby to nap when you are not in the bed?
After a week of what seemed like a ton of movement, he was pretty low key over the weekend. I don't know if I've gotten used to it, so it's not as much of an event when I feel a little wiggle or he's just being quieter with the different rhythm of the weekend. I still feel movement during similar times and in similar places, so I'm not sure if it's that he changed position or what, although last night lying down with dh, he felt some pronounced movement and was thrilled.
