moment of the week: Hearing our baby's heartbeat at my appointment yesterday and also, I'm so happy to report that I have been off my morning sickness pills since Friday last week!!

Symptoms: The usuals plus nasal congestion and at the moment, a headache
Movement: I *may* have just felt some movement!! I was sitting at my desk at work and did a big sneeze, afterward I felt a funny muscle twinge, bubbly type feeling (great description, I know haha) on the lower right side of my stomach/abdomen area. Not sure if it was just a muscle twitch but I can't say I've ever felt it before so who knows!
