18w 2d

I'm feeling some flip flopping going on in my belly more often these days. It's extremely subtle, nothing dramatic yet.

Unfortunately, with an anterior placenta, I likely won't feel strong movement or kicks until much later, if at all.

That's a bummer for someone who expects the worse to happen. I don't have anything but hope to tell me she's okay.

Time does seem to be flying and the love and support I've been receiving has been so touching.

I'm used to the Lovenox shots by now but, not the awful bruising. They don't hurt, I really don't feel a thing but, they look awful. Every time I get an ultrasound with a new doctor or ultrasound tech who I haven't met with yet, they look at my tummy and say "Lovenox?".

Ah well. At least I'm not feeling any pain from it and if it keeps baby girl alive, it's an easy price to pay.

I'm turning 40 in less than two months now and I can't believe it's here. I don't feel 40 (most days). However, I DO feel pregnant. Very, very pregnant. They weren't kidding when they said your third pregnancy shows super big and super fast. I was warned but... holy cow!

The weather is warming up thank goodness and it's put me in a wonderfully happy mood. I absolutely love Spring!

I think I might get the family into the city (DC) for the cherry blossoms this year and take some pictures.

Have a great weekend friends!


  1. So glad to hear you're feeling kicks. I had an anterior placenta with Gus, but because he was the first child I had that I felt kicks with, I didn't have any frame of reference for if I was feeling him more often or less often than a posterior placenta, and I felt him plenty, so I hope that for you.

    1. Thank you! I'm feeling movement here and there but nothing so strong as a "kick". Hopefully it comes about more frequently!

  2. I'm so excited to read you're feeling movements! Can't imagine how lovely that must feel. And I'm sure you will start to feel kicks soon? I tell you, this baby is gonna make it. We'll all be cooing over photos of her before we know it, I am promising you that!
