Spoke Too Soon



Here he is! He's such a cutie, but I may be biased since I helped make him :-)

I wrote just a few days ago that I was waiting to feel him kick, then on Saturday during lunch with my mother I felt it! Actually, I didn't know what it was at first because it was such a strange sensation. Everyone kept saying it felt like gas bubbles or flutters, but I didn't get that at all. He was kicking my cervix and it just felt weird. I thought something could be wrong so I went to the bathroom to check things out. Everything was fine. Then it happened again later that day, only much more intense. It literally felt like he was poking me from the inside out. And like Sophie commented a couple days ago, the same was true for her. She also said it felt like a twitch and it did! He kicked a few more times on Sunday as well but not as intense as the day before.

Such an awesome Mother's Day gift!

Hey little guy, so nice to hear you were giving your Mommy a nudge & a kick on Mother's Day. Oh and such a beautiful smile you've got there.
Just warms my heart to hear it.

Best wishes,

Oh he's cute...you can so say it. I can see it.

So he finally got you to feel him wiggle? It's so amazing, but I promise you the day will come when he kicks you so hard that you will yell out loud. Savannah did to me when I was having brunch with a fried once. It really caught me off guard!!!
