This baby needs a bigger closet

My latest baby clothes buy.  I actually bought these a week ago online at Old Navy but they just arrived.  The sale was awesome: 40% off already reduced prices plus I had $20 rewards to cash in with free shipping.  Don’t worry, I buy multiple sizes in things that I really love so there is actually more than you see here and all for small dollars.  I’m going to start sorting clothing into various size bins: newborn,  0-3 months, 3-6 months, etc.  I haven’t bought anything for beyond 6 months just because I’m sure that I’ll want to buy fun new things later on too!  Buying clothing for me is no fun at all, buying clothes for baby is really exciting somehow.

Abe finally felt the baby move in my belly.  Up until Sunday, he hadn’t seen or felt the baby move every time I pointed to it or told him to feel it.  The baby would always stop kicking the second he touched.  I think this baby is exceptionally active.  I just read that around 28 weeks, you should begin to count movements during certain time periods so you will know if something is unusual later on.  I’m at 22 weeks just today.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that you time how long it takes you to feel 10 kicks, flutters, swishes, or rolls. Ideally, you want to feel at least 10 movements within 2 hours. You will likely feel 10 movements less than that.

Honest to God, when my baby is moving, I will feel 10 movements in about 1 minute or less and it will last at least 30 minutes but more likely 1 hour.  He is most active in the morning during my commute between 7-9am and after my commute home between 7-10pm.  He’s a night owl like his dad, but obviously athletic and punchy like his mom.
