25 Week Update

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Has it really been 5 weeks since my last update? Time is really flying.

First things first, I can finally feel her kick! I was right around 21 and a half weeks when I could feel her for the first time. I was helping an incredible mama through transition and was sitting at the foot of her bed. How fitting that the midwife feels her baby move for the first time while helping welcome another little blessing into the world. Since then her movements have really increased. I don't know if I've ever had someone explain exactly what it feels like but here is my take. Do you ever get a muscle twitch and you can't control it but your muscle just keep sort of flickering? That's what it feels like to me. Pretty amazing. I can't wait to see how it changes with time.

We attempted to get a few photos but baby snowflake was very shy. Still has her arms up by her face and was facing my spine. I can say with full confidence that her right ear is really cute. At one point her knees were up to her chest and she wrapped her arms around them. It looked like she was doing a cannon ball. Maybe she will be a little swimmer like her daddy and big sister.

I probably won't feel 100% confident until we are signing the birth certificate but baby snowflake has a name! We have decided not to share so everyone will just have to be surprised. Let me just say hearing Brennan say her sisters name is one of the sweetest things I've ever heard. This morning Brennan said "I want [baby snowflake] to come out of your belly". I think she's getting excited.

 2 big prayer requests:

Please help me in praying for Newspring Church. We got news that our pastor was asked to step down last week and our church is in a bit of a tizzy, please pray for his family and our church!

Also please pray for my friend Heather. She did her last IVF with her final 2 frozen embryos earlier this week. Praying her baby (or babies) find her!
