I think...

I forgot to post this, but on May 4th I felt the first unmistakable movement. I was sitting at work writing out a list of something and all of a sudden I felt this little “thump” on the right side of my belly. I thought it was rather odd, but then it happened again, twice right in a row. That’s when I knew that it was the raisin. It kept happening for about 4 or 5 more times, and then stopped. It was really exciting and weird. Exciting because, obviously, now I’ve felt the raisin moving around and I know for absolute sure there’s a baby in there. Weird because it just feels weird. It’s not really like anything else. The only thing I can think of that might describe it is the new Gatorade Rain commercials where the girl is in the volleyball and it breaks open, but not all the way. Then there’s this black layer of something; anyway the commercial shows an arm or something moving across underneath it. That’s the way I think it feels. Yep, it’s weird. Just like I said.
So last night we were laying around watching something about the Grand Canyon and I had my hand resting on the (left) side of my belly and I swear I felt it on the outside! I felt it a few times, but Bob said he didn’t feel anything. He said maybe I just thought I felt it on the outside but it was really just because I felt it inside and my hand was there. I don’t think so though.
I have this weekend off, and we have really no idea what we’re going to do yet. My birthday is Tuesday, but I have to work that day. I hate working on my birthday. I am glad I have the weekend off though. I would like to go fishing; it’s practically tradition now to go fishing on my birthday. I also want to go to one of those pick your own strawberry places. Other than that, just hanging out with my hubby will be great. Maybe we can pack a picnic and go look at the waterfalls again or something that will get us outside and moving.I got out my pedometer yesterday for the first time in a long time. I wore it all day at work and when I was done I had only taken about 1500 steps. True, I have an office job and I sit in a chair most of the day, but come on! I did end up walking a good bit after work, but not continuously. I walked up to the dog run to play with Bob and Jasper, but when I got there they were leaving so we just walked right back home. I did go paint pottery with Cindy yesterday, too. I painted a spoon rest, and I think it turned out fairly well. I wonder if one day I could open my own paint your own pottery studio. I think it might be fun.
