And they weren't small to being with. I'd...

I agree, boy names are especially hard. It seems like there are a lot more options for girls. I'm a little worried we won't have a name picked out before the baby is born if it's a boy. ;)

What gender are you having?

If you don't have a strong preference now, you're probably not going to be disappointed when you find out. We found out the sex of my daughter at the 20 week U/S, and I although I'd kind of been...

Lea2012, I think I started feeling movement around 18 weeks with my first pregnancy, and even then I wasn't sure that's what it was. Don't worry, it will happen! Glad to hear you're feeling good!
