Belly Change (To Remember)

Because this blog is really meant to be a place where Matt, our kids and I can look back on one day, I want to remember a brief moment that we had this morning...Matt, our baby and I.

I woke up at 9:30 to having had an excellent nights sleep. (Rare lately). I stretched for a second and then like always, touched my belly (first thing I always do now by habit and just all the time throughout the day). I was shocked because just overnight, my belly now felt different. It felt hard in the area just under my belly button. I swear I could tell where our baby was resting in there. There was a very specific area of my stomach that was extra hard. 

I quickly called to Matt and he rushed in. I told him to feel but didn't tell him why and he said, "Whoa, it feels hard." It was neat. 

I'm not sure if that means it was the baby, but I am really happy and will be all day, thinking that this morning Matt and I were actually rubbing right on where the baby was! Usually my belly is just equally big all around. There is a definite pop now. I'm really excited about this. 

I'm still in my pajamas as this is the first thing I'm doing this morning, but I wanted to remember that moment.

Little Bean,
Our sweet baby. I cannot wait to feel you moving around in my tummy. Any day now, I should be able to. Every night I try to lay very still to see if I'll be able to know you're there, so far I haven't felt anything. I just can't wait :)..Daddy thought he could feel your heartbeat this morning, but it was mine (I think). It was fun to see him get excited. It will be so awesome when you kick hard enough to feel outside my belly. So, hurry and get strong. We can't wait to feel you in there!! 
Love, Mommy


  1. Aww! I had this exact same thing the other day. It was neat! :) x

  2. Although I do not have any babies myself...I know many many mothers of whom I idolize, yourself included:) And the one thing I know about that mothers are the most self-less and giving individuals on this whole planet. And that begins with the changing of their bodies. What a beautiful miracle you are able to do...make a baby and love it so unconditionally even while it changes you so much! You already make a wonderful mother. look like a tiny pregnant girl with a basketball for a belly to me!

    1. Hehe, I love you Jenna. so so much!!! This seriously made my day. You're so good at doing that!
