I felt the baby move!

I am 19 1/2 weeks and I felt the baby move for the first time last night. I have been impatient lately, wanting to feel him/her move. I put all my concentration into any little feeling in my abdomen and nothing. I do a little poking and prodding hoping to get some movement... and nothing. Last night in middle of the night I was laying on my side but slightly rolled onto a bit of my stomach. I was trying to fall back asleep when I felt a little tap... tap.... tap from the inside. My eyes flew open and I was suddenly wide awake, very excited. It was as if the little one was tapping me saying "hey Mom, your squishing me a little, can ya roll back onto your side?" Then as I was laying there I felt more and more movement. It was so great to feel!

Ok, so it's been awhile so I'll give some more updates. We bought a Micralite fastfold stroller with matching carrycot. Here is a picture of it:

We ordered our nursery furniture. Here is what it looks like but you'll have to picture it in a dark espresso color.

We have decided to go with cloth diapers and have purchased several different types.

Oh, and the most exciting thing is we have our 20 week ultrasound on Monday and are hoping to find out the gender! Cant wait!

I'll post again on Monday once we find out what we are having.
