How many weeks am I? Honestly I don't even know. I can't do emotionally charged math right now, particularly the kind that makes me freak out and realize that I am only X number of weeks away from being big as a barn, but I'm pretty sure I'll be four months along in the middle of Feb.
I started noticing little movements last weekend, and I say movements because they were on both sides of my belly, obviously this child is busy. He should fit right in. It seems a bit early to be feeling the baby already, so maybe it's going to be a big baby?, or maybe I'm just more in tune to what's going on (think happy thoughts!). I'm not sure, but I love to feel the kicks; the first contact with our new little person. I'm also feeling really great. VERY tired on some days and I go to bed around 9:30 when I can (poor DH does not get much time), but I'm not sick and feeling pretty comfortable, so that makes it easier to enjoy the little kicks and signs of life.
Now before all you moms who have to deal with being sick for nine straight months start hating me, I will add that I am still totally off of dairy. Just like during my last pregnancy I have developed a strong sensitivity to milk protein (educated guess), and It makes me very sick even if I have just a little. This is kind of irritating since EVERYTHING has cheese or butter or some kind of dairy in it, especially here in the South, but I just try to cook at home a lot and make foods I can eat. In a way, I am really lucky because at least I know what makes me sick, and I can stay away from those foods. If I didn't know it was dairy, I would be sick all nine months too. It kind of makes me wonder how many of the sick-for-nine-months ladies actually have a food sensitivity and don't know it. Two of the foods that have really made my time without dairy bearable are Veggie Cheese and non-dairy ice creams. I swear, the Purely Decedent stuff is so good I had to double check the carton like three times just to make sure I was actually allowed to eat it!
