There it is. 18 weeks 4 days (basically 5, that's why I look so hammered, it had been a long day) Keeps growing!
Tuesday morning I went to spin class (go me!) and while I was stretching after class I felt two distinct thumps inside my belly. It was totally our baby! As soon as I got home I told Eric about it and he just said, "well.... yeah." with a no-duh look on his face. Ha ha, he can be so snoody when he thinks he's right :) But the BEST part of the the day was bed time! We were laying in bed, me on my right side, Eric on his back with the back of his hand/fingers resting against my belly, watching a movie to wind down and go to sleep. All the sudden I felt my stomach kind of pulsing and realized it was baby! The same moment I realized the movement, Eric put more pressure on my belly. The man wasn't lying!! He was totally feeling the baby move as well! I asked him if he could feel it and his reply was, "yep! I told you I felt the baby move..." ha ha. And then we laid there for a few minutes in awe, feeling our baby go crazy in my belly. I had one big, stupid grin on my face the whole time :) I realized I had felt this movement multiple times before, but I never recognized it because I was expecting a gas bubble type feeling, or butterfly type feeling. But the only way I can describe it is a pulsing, like a heart beat pulse, but much faster. But I am so happy with the moment that I actually recognized it, because it's a moment that Eric and I shared together! I think that's so special because I've heard the hubs/dad usually doesn't feel movement for a couple weeks after the mom does. I am one happy mama!!
