Pretty in Pink or Bruiser in Blue???

16 days and counting (almost to the minute) until we find out what the little one is. From the day we found out we were expecting, Jaime has thought we were having a girl. He can't really say why he thinks this but just has a gut feeling. I've gone back and forth and most recently (within the last month or so) have been feeling like we're having a boy. I actally had a vivid dream the other night that our baby was here and was in fact a boy. We've done most of the "Old Wives Tales", each one with a different result. One thing is for sure though, we're either having a boy or a girl. :)

Baby Flutters

Jaime and I are in absolute amazement this week. The baby is nearly 5 inches and we can actually feel it move! One night last week we were sitting on the couch watching TV and Jaime just happened to have his hand on my belly when the baby gave us a nice big "I'm here" punch! We were stunned! The feeling of these "flutters" is so indescribable. Most of the books I've read have said that many women report the feeling to be similar to butterflies in your stomach when you're nervous. Other mothers have told me that it feels like tiny air bubbles or pockets of air. I can't really say that it feels like either of these, more like a tiny, soft internal pinch. All I can say is that everytime I feel the sensation I get so overwhelmed with excitement I can hardly stand it. This has happened several times lately when I've been teaching and I can't help but smile. Oh, while I'm on the topic of my students- one asked me today if the baby is getting heavy because it looks like it is growing. :)
