I'm 19 weeks along as of today and things are still going well with
the baby and me. I'm still just a bit more tired, and then of course
feeling less agile and a bit more achey as well.

I have been able to feel the baby moving for a few weeks now and this little one is very active with strong kicks and wiggles already. Makes me a bit fearful that we are going to have a very active baby on our hands, but only time will tell. My mother reminded me that I was so active in utero that I tore her diaphram. I'm only average in terms of energy output, even as a kid.

I've no inclination of whether it is a boy or a girl. My partner says girl. Jonah says boy. I've scheduled my big ultrasound for next Tuesday afternoon, March 30th, in the afternoon. I'll post an update with a photo when we find out.

Jonah likes to poke at my belly and then says "baby is wondering who
is doing that". He is starting to catch onto the idea of age and time and asks me all of the time if he will still be three when the baby comes. I talk to him about the baby a lot, to try to help prepare him for his new sibling and how things will change. Some friends have offered to lend sibling books with me as well. I know it is going to be a life-changing experience for Jonah -- and for us all.
