was that the baby?!! 16 weeks 3 days

I felt the baby today!!! What a cool sensation. I was sitting at my desk at work typing, when I felt a flutter on the right side of my belly. I froze and felt this crazy slight sensation flutter across my belly!! I freaked out!! I didn't expect to feel the baby already! I hurried and wrote down the time. 10:32am.
I then ran to the phone and called to tell Shaun.

At 10:57am I felt a kick!! It was on the right side just below my belly button. I read that it feels like popcorn popping, and that's what it felt like. Just a little soft pop!

I didn't feel anything for the rest of the day, Even with my heighten senses, Just waiting to feel something again.
Oh! How I want to feel the baby again!! I'm sure as it grows I'll want the baby to stop kicking, But for now, I want all the kicking I can get!! Let's get this baby moving! What an amazing feeling!

Yay! That is so awesome! I could always feel the early flutterings and kicking when I would lay on my back real still! Try that and see if it works- my mom taught me that secret!

Come on little one - KICK YOUR MAMA! You will NEVER hear your Auntie Kel say that again but for now - KICK, KICK, KICK. Well, except when we teach you to swim, kicking is very handy then.

We LOVE you!
