With luck and G-d willing, today marks the half-way point in this pregnancy.
Half-way there! Yahooooooo!!
I am counting the seconds until I get to meet my daughter. Here's hoping the last 20 weeks go a lot faster than the first 20 weeks!
[Update: So shortly after I wrote this post, D and I headed to bed. On my dad's suggestion, I thought I'd try playing some music to my belly to see if I could get the baby to kick. I loaded up my iPod with a bunch of mellow Beatles songs and sitting in bed last night, I pressed the headphones to my belly. It took about two minutes and then I felt her kick! I told D to put his hand on my belly and sure enough, he felt her kick too, for the first time! It was so magical I almost cried. My husband's first real connection to his daughter.
And can you guess which Beatles song got our little girl kicking? "Something In The Way She Moves"... Appropriate, no?]
