we're moving!

well, we aren't perse... but the babe inside is!!!!  FINALLY (as in today) i'm feeling a little person inside me movin' around.  all my other little insiders were felt earlier.  much much earlier.  (as early as 12 1/2 weeks but 14ish for most of them). 
i was getting a bit anxious about not feeling movement yet, but the PA reassured me yesterday at my 17 week appointment yesterday that some moms don't start feeling the baby moving around until 19 or 20 weeks!  wowser. 
i knew that the baby has been growing nicely since i've had to move into maternity clothes and i'm REALLY showing now... as opposed to me being fat and people confusing that for showing.  :(  i can feel my uterus pushing my guts up and out and my lower abdomen out ...even with a little blubber on top of it...
so, this is exciting.  i love feeling the movement of the little baby inside.  i know it really gets annoying later in pregnancy with my little soccer star / gymnasts infants-in-eutero, but i still love the feeling.  please keep praying for me and my little one with a safe, happy, healthy pregnancy and delivery and baby.
i don't know if i have given an update on my heart.  i'm taking the medication once/day and haven't had any episodes since.  i don't know if it's working or if i just haven't had one... because they're random anyway.  so, i see the cardiologist on the 20th and i guess i'll learn more then.  if not, then i'm going to have to change cardiologists!
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
