They call them flutters, some people compare it to a feeling of gas, and some even say it feels like there’s a little fish swimming around inside. Whoever you take advice from they are right, but it’s so much more than that. It’s become one of my favorite things about being pregnant -besides being able to eat whatever I want whenever I want.
My favorite part of the day is when I feel her kicking and moving around in there. She seems to be most active when I’m sleeping or when I first lay down in bed. I hop in bed, rather awkwardly because it’s getting a bit difficult to bend certain ways, and I slowly move down to my side. It’s like clock work though, I lie there and wait a few minutes and she stretches her little legs -I assume it’s her legs because I feel this stretching kind of pressure on my side, like little feet.
And then there are times when it’s 2:30 (or 4:30 or 5:30 she picks) in the morning and I feel these kicks and twists and turns and I can’t help but smile, because she’s in there moving around -that tiny little body of hers is moving and stretching and growing. It’s seriously my most favorite part!
A few weeks back I was holding my new niece -this little ones’ cousin- and this girl went nuts! She was kicking her cousin and moving around just getting crazy. I don’t know if it was her way of trying to get my attention or if she was getting squished -I mean, she was probably just getting squished, but I couldn’t help but crack up.
It’s amazing this whole pregnancy thing, all these changes that happen, the development. I’m so extremely grateful for this little one, to be a mom is all I’ve ever wanted and I cannot wait to see her and hold her. Babies are such a blessing!
