My mom asked me yesterday if I’d felt the baby move yet. I told her that I wasn’t really sure, because I was told that at first it just sort of feels like gas bubbles, which I have plenty of!! There’s been a few times when I thought something felt a little different than “normal” gas, but I wasn’t really sure. My doctor said I should expect to feel “non-gassy” movement – a very technical term – between about 18-20 weeks. I’m 18.5 weeks, so I was trying to patiently wait until I felt BabyMort move.
Then, last night, I was laying on my tummy for a few minutes while Aaron rubbed my back. After about a minute, I felt sort of like someone had poked me under my belly button. I thought, “Oh man!! That was BabyMort…I think!!” It happened again a few seconds later and then a few more times – probably 5 or 6 in total. I told DaddyMort that I thought I’d felt BabyMort move…well probably.
I’m not sure why I’m so hesitant to say with conviction that I felt BabyMort move. It’s not like anyone could even prove me wrong!! I’m guessing once I feel it again, I’ll be more confident in saying that I felt BabyMort. Maybe we’ll have to institute nightly back-rubs until I’m sure!!
