What a week!!! I’ll start this week out with my 17 week picture. Baby Snydes, are you in there? I still am told by most people I don’t even look pregnant still. The only people that can really tell are myself, Ryan, and my family. I’ve looked at a lot of people similar in my build and they looked the same at this point. No worries…I’ll be big soon enough! Man, I feel so big already.
“This is the coolest thing ever! I sure hope it’s what I think it is! I thought I felt the baby yesterday and the day before similar to a piece of popcorn popping in your stomach (if you can imagine that). People describe it as butterflies in your stomach, popcorn popping, or gas bubbles (and call it “quickening”). I don’t really feel the butterfly description, but definitely the other two. Today is a little “harder.” I’m sitting here on my computer and keep feeling a gas/popcorn/thump feeling in my lower stomach, more so on the left side. I told myself I’d be more sure if I could feel more later in the week or weeks to come. I’m now convinced that is what it was. I personally think it is God answering my prayers. Yesterday and the day before, I was tested with worry (read previous post) and had abdominal pains in my lower middle/left side – the best way I can describe this pain is if someone took a fishing hook and hooked it into your skin and pulled every now and then on it, except like the hook is hooked into my uterus. It’s definitely bearable (only because it lasts a second), but annoying and worrisome. I told myself it was my uterus stretching and growing. I prayed I would stop worrying and I believe God just told me “Hey here’s your baby moving…everything is ok!” Being a first time mom-to-be is crazy with learning so much about how your body works when it’s building a baby! Wooo…there it is on the other side!” J
God is in control and He is making me so happy!
