So last night for the first time ever, I was very confident I was feeling the baby kick and move around and not other strange things in my body. Little man was pretty active for about 45 minutes last night while Jason and I watched the final two episodes of “Tell Me You Love Me” the most fabulous HBO show ever. Jason was very eager to feel the baby too – but I knew it was probably way too early for that. He kept insisting he felt movement in my belly and while I assured him that he probably did, I also let him know that I didn’t feel it, he couldn’t feel it. He probably was just feeling my heartbeat and other stomach rumblings.
However…..just as we were lying down to go to bed, Jason put his hand on my belly and said “Good Night Baby” and then it happened…one nice swift kick. I turned to Jason to tell him “he heard you” but before I could even say anything, Jason said “I definitely felt something” So a huge grin came over my face and I said, “yes you did because I felt it too.” It was VERY COOL.
I know it will vary for the next few weeks as baby starts kicking and moving more and more – but what a truly neat experience to share with my husband. Grow baby grow! 🙂
