Momma sprained her ankle

Today I was walking to my car at lunch. It was super icy and I fell backwards and hurt my ankle. I rolled it pretty bad. I could barely walk on it. I knew when I got home that I needed to see a Dr. It was very painful. The Doctor said it was a grade 1 sprain and that I need to stay off of it as much as possible for the next 7-10 days. So no working out for this Momma. 

Baby started kicking (or should I say zumbaing like crazy) in my belly last night. I think she was trying to remind me of how grateful I should be that things weren’t worse. On the bright side, Mike got to fell her kick for the first time last night. It was pretty cool. 🙂

Our baby girl is pretty active

Around week 16, I felt her for the first time. Between week 16-21 I started to feel her more and more each day in particular in the evening when I would lay down for bed. Just this weekend, I had my hand on my belly and I felt her for first time touching my belly versus just feeling her internally. It was the coolest thing ever. I have felt my belly move a couple times since then. I can’t wait for Mike to get an opportunity to feel her move too!!

Baby P. is growing rapidly. I am surprised how much my belly grows each week.

What a blessing!

It’s a girl!!!!


Mike and I in the waiting room prior to the ultrasound.

We had our first ultrasound on Wednesday, November 20. I had been counting down the days until our ultrasound appointment for months. Both Mike and I were excited to find out what we were having. This was one of the best days of my life! We are so blessed!
