Everything looks good - (s)he is still cooking in there, everything is proportionate and measuring right on track. We are now the proud owners of an envelope telling us the gender of the baby - which we will not open until Christmas morning. :)

First Kick (or Punch)
Sitting at my desk this morning and felt a strong THUMP in my lower abdomen. It repeated again a few seconds later. This was a much stronger feeling that the fluttering I felt last week.... <3

While not exclusively wearing maternity clothes, my jeans were tight yesterday and uncomfortable. I switched to maternity pants this morning and am loving them! Sooo comfy!

Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
I was at the movies on a date with my husband. The movie was fairly loud and had a lot of bass. I felt lots of flutters in my lower abdomen... I've been feeling them off and on for a while but this was definitely longer and more pronounced. The movie kind of sucked, but I was smiling the whole time.

First Positive Pregnancy Test
It was my hubby's birthday, and even though I was only 9DPO I thought it would be a fun surprise. I tested and was shocked that it was positive so early. I put the test in a box with a note that said "Happy Birthday Daddy! I can't wait to meet you. May 3rd 2014"
