29 Weeks

I had an appointment today with my midwife and all was well. Nothing too eventful - which is a good thing :-) The baby was moving like crazy and his/her heartbeat was all over the place. They finally got it recorded at 150. I measured just as I should (29 cm). At my appointments they are always feeling the baby and telling me what is what, which is really fun. He/she had a heel sticking right at my ribs. While we were in the waiting area Hannah took a little baby and put it under her shirt and said, "I have a baby in my tummy too. Lets see if it is as big as our baby" and then she pressed her stomach up to mine and said, "nope, but it will get bigger". After a couple minutes she pulled the baby out and said, "look, my baby popped out of my tummy". She always talks about when the baby pops out this or when the baby pops out that. Funny girl.
This little guy or girl is a real mover and shaker. It is rare for there to be no moving going on. This morning it woke me up. It was like somersaults happening over and over. He or she also gets hiccups a lot. However, today my midwife said it isn't hiccups but them practicing their sucking. Whatever it is, it is cute :-)

That's so cool that he/she is already practicing necessary skills he/she will need when he/she comes out of the womb! (I can't wait to hear what gender it is!) :)
