I've finally started feeling the baby move! :o) The first time I realized that I was feeling the baby was on the 4th (Labor Day), shortly before I fell asleep. I'm not sure if I felt any movement before then, but last Monday was the first time the thought occurred to me that the baby was moving. He/she moved just once, so it was hard to be certain that it was the baby. The next day, I had the same feeling before falling asleep. Again, only one time -- it felt as if someone took their finger and traced a line up my belly, but from the inside... does that make sense? lol, I don't know, but that's how I can explain it -- so I knew then that what I had felt on Monday really was the baby.
I read somewhere that women begin feeling movement around 16 weeks and later, but for the first pregnancy, most women feel movement in the latter part of the time-frame. I figured I wouldn't feel anything for another few weeks, so I was surprised to feel something when I hadn't even hit my 17-week-mark!
I didn't feel anything again for several days -- almost a week. But then, Sunday morning, I started feeling him/her move again during Pastor's sermon. I told Pastor that the baby must have been saying "Amen" to his preaching; Pastor replied, "Sounds as if you've got a bapti-costal in there!" :P
My Airman is upset that he hasn't been around/able to feel anything yet. The first few times the baby moved, I told him that he wouldn't be able to feel anything from the outside, so it wasn't a big deal. Now, though, I can feel little kicks/bumps/whatever while my hand is resting on my stomach. Every time I tell my husband that the baby was moving around like crazy during the day, he pooches his lip, puts his hand on my stomach, and says, "I want to feel something!" I think he's feeling left out :o( Awwww, my poor hubby! Oh, well. Soon enough he will feel something, I'm sure. :o)
