Is that really kicking?
So yesterday I was standing and talking to two of my friends and co-workers. I'm listening to one of them tell a story (I work in the library with storytellers, of course it was a good one) and all of a sudden I feel this movement in my lower abdomen. Have you ever been really hungry and been able to feel your heartbeat in your stomach? Maybe this is some weird phenomenon for me because David says that's never happened to him. Anyway, that's what it felt like, only it was way down low...where the baby would be. It was this repetitive movement that lasted maybe 4 or 5 seconds. I've heard that sometimes first-time moms will mistake gas for the baby moving. Believe me, people, I've had gas and it's never felt like that before! I don't know if it really was the baby moving, but I choose to believe it was. I haven't been able to feel anything since, but I'm just so happy that there's another life inside me. I can't wait to feel it kick even more and continue this bonding time with my child! Soon after I feel it more consistently I'll be so excited to share those movements with David and the rest of my family and friends. If this baby's anything like me, we'll have a gymnast on our hands and there will be no problems with other people being able to feel the movements, too. :)
