Can you feel it?



Take 3 fingers and lightly drum them on your arm. That's what it feels like when you first notice your baby kicking. But that only lasts a couple of days. After that, it's pretty unmistakable. More like being tapped with a mallet and then jabbed with a knuckle. The baby is only 6 inches long. I'm not sure how it packs such a punch. Michael has even felt it.
Yay for baby kicks!!
Ultrasound next week!!!

Lucky you. I haven't felt anything yet. In fact, I was a little nervous for my ultrasound, hoping it was moving. It was. And it's a girl. Can't wait to hear what you are having.

Tawnie, my doc said taht if my placenta was in front, i wouldn't feel the baby as soon. or if my baby wasn't as active. Still normal. I can't wait to hear what i'm having, too.

I love baby kicks. I even feel them sometimes. Except it is gas, not a baby.
Of course, that is a relief at this stage of my life!

I'll be anxiously awaiting the ultrasound news!!! When I was pregnant with Ethan I could feel contractions before I could even feel him! It was the weirdest sensation ever to feel contractions in such a tiny uterus!
