Baby B was moving all around as usual. At first he was head down, but towards the end he had moved again and was higher on my belly and diagonal (head off to the left side above my belly button, butt coming down below my belly button and then had his legs and feet in Baby A's face). In fact we got a picture of him actually bumping Baby A in the nose with his leg. He must not be able to get comfortable or something as he is always on the move during ultrasounds and getting in Baby A's space. He is the bigger one and was 1lb 4oz at last U/S and 2lb 5oz at this one. His heartbeat was 150.
So both babies gained about a pound in 4 weeks. Both our doctors said that was a very good/steady growth and nothing to be worried about yet.
Also feeling lots of kicks and movement. Times of day where I've been noticing a pattern are usually 8:00, 12:00, 3:00, 5:00 and a lot between 7:00 and 10:00 at night. Sometimes they'll be kicking during the nighttime too after I've gotten us all out of bed to go the bathroom.
I read that your partner should try to put their ear to your belly to see if they can hear heartbeats and Chris has tried that a few times. The first time he got knocked on the cheek 3 times. The other day it just happened again. They must know when Dad is down there trying to get to know them. Lol.
In the car yesterday at lunchtime my Ipod played a Celine Dion song (yes I like Celine...) that had a lot of violin in it and babies were kicking up a storm. I teared up immediately just thinking about them reacting to the music and the thought of meeting them soon. I haven't had a lot of those emotional realization moments so it's worth mentioning!
I also made it to the Y on Sunday to swim. I managed to do a half mile at a pretty slow pace which took me 30 minutes (before pregnancy a mile took me 37 mins at my best). At one point, I stopped in the deep end to cough and pulled a stomach muscle or something. I hung onto the side and floated on my back for a bit just trying to remain calm and I had to laugh eventually as I looked up at the lifeguard who looked like he was seriously pondering jumping in after me. Pregnant lady gets pulled out of pool in goggles and swim cap.....would have been a sight to see!
27 Weeks today is what Chris shouted behind him as he left this morning. Yes!
