Movement - 25 weeks

Yesterday, my husband finally felt Ms. Randi Lyrae kicking. I've been able to see her kicks and punches now on the outside for about a week but my husband could never see it when I tried to show him. Back to the name, Randi Lyrae is what we will be naming our baby girl. Randy is my dad's name and Lyrae is my middle name. We knew, boy or girl that the first name was going to be Randy, just spelled a little differently if it was a girl. I have such a special connection with my dad and I really wanted to be able to honor him in as big of a way as I know possible. I've gained up to just about 20 pounds already and the weight just keeps coming on. I really really really hope I can lose most of it afterwards, but it's doubtful. My metabolism just isn't what it used to be, or I'm just stuffing my face more than I used to. ;) I have just fifteen weeks left to go. A little less then four months left!!! Cannot believe how fast time is flying by! We keep buying more and more stuff for this little one that she almost has everything she needs already. We've had to save some items for the baby shower though which will be after the baby is born. Well, I hope everyone had a good weekend!

I love the name...super sweet! I can't believe how quickly time flies! Before you know it she'll be here! Yay for kicks and movement. I've felt a few flutters and some movement, but it's so hard to know if it's just my stomach bothering me or the kiddo! :-) We find out tomorrow (hopefully) what we're having. i hope it's a girl! :-)

Awww that must have been an amazing moment for you both!

And that is a truly beautiful name you have chosen for your precious girl.

Thanks for your comment on my blog - made me feel better! I love the name - my middle name is LaRae - kinda similar! I think it is so neat that you are able to honor your dad.

Such a cute name. I love it.
Thats also so exciting that your hubby finally felt her kicking. I bet that's just amazing. I'm not sure if I'm feeling him or not. I think I am? I can't wait though until like you said I can see it coming out of my stomach.
I'm glad you girls are doing good!

Hooray for your little soccer player!!! That is so precious...her name is so pretty!

Glad to hear time is flying by for you...she'll be here before you know it!! :o) I feel like if it ever happens for me I'm not going to be too patient for those 9 long months!! But feeling her kick probably helps the wait...knowing she's sayin' hi even though you can't kiss her chubby cheeks yet! :o)
