My child is officially ON THE MOVE.

29 Jun

I thought seeing the ultrasound was just about the coolest thing ever…and then he MOVED…and I FELT it.

When we first saw Baby Key moving around on the ultrasound, it was reassuring because the technician said everything was progressing perfectly and normally. I could see him moving but I could not feel it yet. That all changed last night. After I got home from Happy’s Running Club, Brent and I grabbed a quick bite to eat, I took a shower, and then we headed off to bed. Right after I laid down, I felt a nudge…from the inside! I immediately thought, “What was THAT!?” And then I realized, it was just Baby Key saying, “Yo, mom! What’s up?” I started giggling and immediately told Brent. We laid there for at least another hour feeling the kicks and marveling about how awesome it all was.

Was it my rockin’ run at Happy’s? Was it the good mood I was in from seeing all my #RunLA fam? Have I just been eating my Wheaties? Who knows. All I do know is that this child is on the move! As soon as I woke up this morning, he was at it again!

Am I growing a little track star? Is he already doing speed work in there? Is he running laps or dreaming of his first 5k? Maybe he’ll be wearing a gold medal in the 2032 Olympics for sprints and relays? A mama can dream! Or maybe he’ll be a famous soccer player? His daddy sure wouldn’t mind that!

These should make @RunBimma proud. 🙂

I feel so blessed in so many ways these days. I have this amazing, supportive husband, I have this awesome little man who is getting stronger everyday, and I have all of super motivating new running buddies.

My husband + my #RunLA fam = the best cheering squad EVER.

I’m really not sure what I would do without them. They understand when I am having a bad day and they freely dole out the high fives on a good day. And I have to say, post-run sweaty hugs from running buddies are the best. It excites me to know that after Baby Key arrives he will have all these active, healthy role models to look up to. Plus, it will be kind of fun bringing the BabyJogger out to the Happy’s Running and Varsity Sports groups. Baby Key is going to be spoiled from all the attention, I just know it. 😉

    So fun, feeling your baby move is the best feeling ever!! Just curious, do people bring jogging strollers to the Happys or Varsity Sports runs? I really want to come but with my husband’s work schedule, he with his work schedule it is hard for him to get home in time for me to leave and watch Little Miss while I head out to meet the groups for a run. But, maybe I can bring her for an easy run @ Happy’s in the stroller? Baby Key and Little Miss could be friends 🙂

      YES! People DEFINITELY come out with strollers, dogs, small kids, etc.! You and Little Miss should totally come join us!! There are several single and double strollers at both the Happy’s runs and the Varsity Sports runs. We would love to see you! 🙂

    Isn’t that the best feeling…the kicks and squirms and wiggles. Another little runner in the making!!

      It really is! It makes me feel safer knowing he is growing and moving around in there…sort of like my own little window to him! Its awesome!

    YAY!!!!! How exciting! Just wait a couple of months until your whole belly moves around and it looks like you have an alien in there. 😉

    Glad I’m a part of your cheering team. Run run run Mama! (And you too little Baby Key!)

      I know, I know! Now THAT is going to be weird…like when you can actually SEE an elbow or knee poking out at you! CAH-RAZY!

      Thanks for joining the #RunLA fam! Every team member is crucial! 🙂
