Feeling your baby kicking for the first time is one of the greatest feelings ever, or atleast it is for me anyway. For me, its just that reassurance that there is, in fact, a live human being still hanging in there. It’s just awesome.
I went to the doctor today. I think I had convinced myself he was gonna tell me something was wrong. My cerclage sutures had come undone, preterm labor……you name it, and I can bet you that I have worried about it in the past three days. As it turns out, everything is fine right now. My cerclage looks great, and Yates has a good, strong heartbeat. I have gained a total of 4 pounds so far. (I think I had gained 20 by this time during Charlie Rogan’s pregnancy). I know that worrying does more harm than good, and I can’t control everything, but that doesn’t make it any easier. This is only the second pregnancy that I have been able to carry this long, and it is certainly high risk. Coming home today and feeling the baby kick just made everything better.
