kick it

1. First there were flutters. (The pop rocks turned out to be, I'm guessing, ligament pains...even though they happened when I was sitting rather than moving.)

2. Then there were more distinct flutters (not the "I think that was baby" flutters...)

3. After that it was the little kicks.

4. Then there were kicks that I could sometimes feel from both sides of the belly.

5. Followed by other people being able to touch my belly and feel kicks too.

6. Next were the "what is baby doing in there?" movements. (Including, but not limited to using my pelvic floor as a trampoline, a rolling loch ness monster sort of move, the I'm, here move and possibly a few head butts.)

7. Then I started to feel all these movements higher up on my belly. Yup, that uterus is growin'.

8. What I really never expected? To be able to see these movements. Through my clothes. Including a layer of sweat pants and thick t-shirt. Wow.

Can't wait to see/feel what's next.


  1. How fun!!! that has to be the coolest thing ever.

  2. I miss those movements sometimes, although not the pregnancy in general. Have you had the "foot in the ribs" kicks yet? Not so nice...
