I read in one of my books that you can start to feel the baby move anywhere between 16 and 20 weeks. So since about 15 and a half i’ve been trying to hold still throughout the day to see if I could feel anything moving. But it is hard to know if you’ve felt something when you have no idea what to expect. Any little movement at all I questioned. I figured anything that wasn’t consistently happening over and over again was probably not the baby moving. I’ve asked my girlfriends what it feels like. Most describe little flutters like a butterfly is in your stomach. Well last Wednesday, I was sitting in bed holding still to see if I could feel the baby move. After a while I felt a very faint tickle sensation. Then it happened again, and again. Like someone was ever so lightly tickling my stomach from the inside. A big smile appeared across my face as I realized that this was in fact what it felt like to have a baby move in your stomach. It is by far the coolest thing that has happened yet. The funny part is that i’d felt the same sensation for a week prior. I just didn’t realize that it was the baby moving. I felt like my stomach kept itching in the middle. All week I was scratchiing an itch that kept coming back. Who knew the itch was the baby. Now that I recognize the feeling, I notice it all the time, usually when I sit down or after I eat. It is truyly amazing.
