Then Thursday. And Friday. And every day since. A few times a day, even!
I can't tell for sure, but I might be feeling the baby moving around in there! This is called quickening... maybe because when you feel it for the first few times your heartbeat quickens and your breath quickens with the excitement of it all!
Hearing the heartbeat a couple of weeks ago grounded me in this pregnancy. Before then I was floating around in pregnant-but-not-really-feeling-it land. Then I heard the heartbeat (so strong and beautiful!) and then I knew for sure that the life inside me was real and really growing and becoming a person that, really, already meant so much to me.
And now I might be feeling the baby kicking and pushing against my uterus?! Amazing. I always thought it would be really weird to have a human being prodding around in there, but I was wrong. It's so awesome.
Of course, it could be gas bubbles. But it does feel different than my usual gas.... so I'm leaning more towards baby kicks! I guess I'm still kind of waiting for more reassuring bumps to know for sure!
