I can feel YOU!

On Thursday, I was sitting at work, doing my usual thing on the computer, and I felt a weird sensation in my lower belly. I passed it off as gas at first, thinking that was what it was. And then, a few hours later, it happened again. On Friday, I had the same feeling. And on Saturday and Sunday I felt it too.

What I thought was gas, is most certainly you moving around in there, Peanut. I know this now. And orange juice gets you moving, because I had some this morning and on the way to work, you made your presence known once again.

Feeling you move, makes this pregnancy, and your existence far more real to me. You really are in there. Moving around, grimacing at bright lights, and pumping your fists into my abdomen. I would describe it like everyone else does. Just like flutters or small taps from the inside. But, it's far cooler than how it is described. I wish your Daddy could feel you now, but that will come in time. For now, it's just you and me, and boy do I feel lucky. Like the luckiest momma on the planet.

Curtis should be able to feel soon... I was surprised how early Joel could feel, I should go and look at how early it was, but it was close to when I could feel.
