So, I'm 18 weeks along now and there is starting to be some action. By action, I mean that I can feel the baby moving! About a week ago, I caught this nasty cold and was in bed more than usual. I felt a weird thing and luckily Cree was there so I grabbed her hand and she felt it too! Now, it happens all the time. Usually when I am sitting or lying down and most often after I've eaten.
I wonder if at some point it will feel less exciting, but right now I can't help but smile every time it happens. It makes me seem like a very happy lady.
People have asked what it feels like. The Books say that it feels like "popcorn popping" (Ha! I almost typed pooping) or "butterflies" but I think it feels similar to when you put your hand on your pulse points in your neck. Try it, put your fingers on your neck like you are taking your pulse. Then imagine it's a little stronger than that, irregular and in your lower abdomen. Does anyone else have a good description?
