FINALLY!!

I went to the ER tonight with some minor pain what ended up being round ligament stretching, no biggie right? Well, for starters, apparently if you show up to the emergency area of Medical City Dallas, you're pregnant and have abdominal pain, you get to cut ahead of everyone else lol. BUT!! When I was strapped to all the monitors and whatnot, not only did I hear Peyton's heartbeat and her moving around, but I FINALLY felt her move!!! It took the doppler monitor being pressed into my stomach to find her, but the pressure was enough for her to show mommy she was there!! I was so happy, I hadn't felt her yet and I was starting to get worried. Wouldn't you after 23 weeks? Oh, and she had the hiccups! Cutest thing ever ^_^


There is no stress that can't be handled with a
prayer and chocolate.

It was indescribable to say the least ^_^ I was worried, but apparently she's just tiny. My husband and I aren't very big people though. I'm 5'6 and was 130lbs when I got pregnant, and my husband's 5'8 and 145lbs on a lazy day lol.

Glad to hear you got some relief!
That noisy Doppler might have caused her to run away~   and you felt her!

Congrats and good luck!!

No it's not uncommon.... I didn't feel little one move on the outside until about 25 weeks. At 23 weeks they're still small....
