Just when I say that I'm getting anxious to feel our baby move, kick, punch, flutter - IT HAPPENS!
I was laying in bed Saturday morning reading my week by week pregnancy book, as I do every Saturday morning, when I felt her/him. I wasn't sure it was really her/him at first. Honestly, I thought maybe I had gas. But then 40 seconds later it happened again. And again. I knew the only thing it could actually be is her/him moving around in there. FINALLY! When people describe it as popcorn popping, they are exactly right. It's definitely what I would call it.
I stayed in bed for another 10 minutes without moving. Because me moving would make him or her stop moving all together, right? So silly of me. The more I thought about it the more I realized I think I have felt her/him before but I just didn't realize it. Being able to stay still and concentrate on what I was feeling inside of me made it easy to feel her/him. As I go about my day I never really concentrate on whether I can or can't feel anything - hence probably feeling her/him before without even realizing it. Besides, as a first time mom I didn't even really know what any sort of movement would feel like.
I'm so thrilled I finally felt our little sweet potato! I can't wait until C can feel her/him too!
