19 Weeks

Today I am 19 weeks pregnant. Almost halfway! I've been feeling little "flutters" for a couple weeks now. Everything I've read/everyone I've talked to has described it as feeling like gas bubbles or butterflies. To me it feels exactly like a muscle spasm. Little twitches in the same place on and off.

Last night I had my hand on my belly where the flutters were, and I finally felt it in my hand! The little one kicked me somethin' good! It was super weird, but really cool at the same time. I wasn't expecting to feel it either, so it totally surprised me and I said, "whoa!" It was exciting. Later I tried to have Nate feel it, but of course, as in every case, Baby stopped kicking as soon as his hand was there. It will be easier for him to feel it later anyway, once Baby and my belly are bigger.

I have a long story about how my doctor and his office are awful and I'm going to go somewhere else, but my tummy is rumbling (not the baby- I'm hungry!) so it will have to wait till after I am nourished.

I never felt flutters either. I think that's the worst way to describe it. Either that--or we have strong babies that go right to the kicking stage, because mine felt like muscle spasms too. Congrats!! Boys are the best!
