Baby boogie

September 4th, 2009 by Shannon

For the longest time I was unsure if I was feeling the baby move or not. It felt like little flutters that I was pretty certain was not my bowels or liver or anything else…but I wasn’t quite sure. Well, over the last week or so (week 20/21) I am now CERTAIN that I’m feeling the baby move. This time there are more definite ‘kick-like’ sensations I’ve been feeling. The other day I was busy all day but then sat down to rest and all of a sudden I felt the ‘thud’ in my belly, I was like “was that baby?” but then two seconds later, in the exact same spot, was the same thud feeling. Now I notice it a lot more. I especially notice it when I really have to pee but haven’t made it to the bathroom yet, and baby either thinks a new trampoline has appeared or decides things are getting too crowded in there with my bladder in the way and starts stomping away on it. It’s the weirdest sensation- baby river dance on my bladder! Sometimes too it makes me laugh out loud feeling the baby kick…it feels funny! And then, two nights ago, I was lying in bed and the thuds started coming on a certain side of my belly so I told J to put his hand there…not sure if he could feel it or not…and he could! The baby just kept kicking the same spot or head butting or whatever and jason felt it all! How special! I wonder what baby’s patterns are for sleeping/moving because I feel baby move pretty erratically- mainly when I’ve stopped and am resting or sitting. Interesting. I love feeling the baby move though because it reminds me he/she is still there and flexing his/her little muscles!
