Can't stop smiling

Anyone else not able to stop smiling when you look at your growing belly?  I find myself giggling and rubbing my belly every time I pass my reflection in the mirror.  I'm 17 weeks tomorrow, and I'm  almost 31 years old... I feel silly giggling all the time, but it's just such a blessing and a dream come true.  I even catch my husband staring and giggling all the time.  :-)

Even through all the discomfort, I love rubbing on my belly and telling her how special she is to me. Prenatal child psychology research suggests that the baby responds positively to touch and attention while in utero. My little goes crazy in my belly when hubby starts rubbing it and kissing it and telling her how much he loves her. I think they pick up on the joy and excitement somehow, I dunno, but it certainly can't hurt!
