It's Alive!

A couple of nights ago I was laying in bed reading a book; when I felt something! I thought could this be my baby moving already? It seemed a little early to start feeling the movements, but I lay there and sure enough! What was very surprising was how strong the movements felt. Let me tell you, when I'm reading a book, I'm usually very engrossed; so for me to notice the movements meant that they were fairly strong for so young a baby. I put my hand on it and just enjoyed the moment! Of course I told my husband who was at the computer in our room. He even came over to see if he could feel it since the movements were so strong. He wasn't real sure, but he thought he could feel slight movements! Every since then I've noticed my baby letting itself be known to me! I love this point in the pregnancy! I'm not so uncomfortable with pregnancy, but I still get to enjoy feeling this small being moving inside of me! Now I have a little over 5 months until I get to see it eye to eye!

Awe, that is so sweet! It has been a long time since I felt that, but I remember how special those movements were. BTW- Thanks for letting me know about your invite to my blog. I hope I have that all taken care of now.

Such a precious time when you get to know your little one, just you and them.

That's so exciting! On the way home from Church Wednesday, Mom was saying that it seemed like Sis. Carrie's pregnancy has gone really fast! She only has a couple of months now! It does seem like it's been really fast, although I'm sure it hasn't felt fast to her! I'm glad you can feel the baby moving. It must be so exciting to be the mother getting to feel that!
