{Cruise Fiasco, Baby Scare and Baby Moon}

Have y'all been watching all the coverage on the Carnival Triumph situation?!  So crazy and scary! 
Well, my husband and I were supposed to be setting sail on the EXACT same ship and to the exact same destination in just a few days.  EEEK!  Thank goodness we decided not to book that!  Back when we were trying to decide what to do for our baby moon we were set on a cruise and we knew we only wanted to do a 3-4 day one over a weekend and just going to Mexico.  So, we started the process of booking our trip to Cozumel and Progresso on the Carnival Triumph for February 21st-February 25th.  But at the last minute we changed our mind and decided to just fly instead.  Thank God!  Can you imagine being almost 7 months pregnant and stuck on a broke down cruise ship, floating aimlessly in the middle of the ocean for a week?!  

Speaking of our baby moon....this time next week we will be in Mexico! Whohoooo!  For the past few weeks I have thought we were leaving Saturday morning but yesterday when I was looking at our hotel and flight info I realized we leave Friday morning.  So glad I looked or else we would have missed this trip to Mexico too ( see this post to read about what happened back in May )!
I had a bit of a baby scare yesterday and even still today.  I was just sitting around yesterday and noticed Connor moving A LOT.  So, I was just watching my belly roll and bounce then all of the sudden he (or something) went CRAZY....the only way I can describe it is, I felt like he was having a seizure in my stomach.  He was shaking/moving really fast for about 10-15 seconds.  Then he went right back to normal kicking and jabbing.  It was the craziest thing....the feeling I got and the way my stomach looked was unlike anything that has happened so far.  Well, it happened again about an hour ago, but only lasted about 5 seconds.  So now I am freaking out... I called my doctor and they have heard of this before and want me to just start keeping a log of his kicks and when these episodes happen.  They are not really concerned about it because he goes back to moving like normal the rest of the day and it has only happened twice.  They think I may be eating or drinking something that is triggering it or it may just be my uterus having a spasm.  Of course I googled it and read about other women have had had this happen before and apparently it can be completely normal.  It is very unlikely that he is actually having a seizure.  So, that made me feel a tiny bit better but I am still a worrier so I just hope that it really is nothing.  I have an appt. next Wednesday so maybe they look more into it. 
Any other moms out there or preggo friends have this ever happen?
On that note...Happy Friday and hope you have a great weekend! =)
