Tiny Kicks

Just a day before I turn 20 weeks, I felt Lucy’s first little kicks. Last night around 10:30 p.m., we listened to her heartbeat with the doppler, and she was constantly wiggling around. I could feel her fluttering all over. Then, I felt three little pangs like someone flicking me with a finger, which I’m assuming was her kicking. It was crazy because she’s never moved around like that before at night, even when we listen to her with the doppler. It was pretty cool. I even thought I could feel one of her kicks with my hand on my belly, but it might have been just because I was feeling her from the inside because Joe didn’t feel it.

I don’t feel a lot of movement during the day. I think she sleeps then. But now, I’m anxious to see what I feel at nights. I’m hoping I’ll start feeling more and more movement. I can’t wait … even if I lose some sleep from it!

    Aww, how exciting! This is just the beginning too šŸ™‚ I remember w/all my pregnancies, I’d feel more movements/kicking @ nite also~I guess because after dinner my tummy was full & I was more relaxed & not moving around as much myself. Here’s to happy kicking for you guys šŸ™‚

    Oh, isn’t that the best? I love it! I was never one of those people that complained about the kicking bothering me and keeping me up. I always loved feeling my little babies. I can’t wait to feel this one, too.

    In-utero movement is one of the first things about parenting that will hold to this rule: you’ll love it, and you’ll worry over it. Enjoy this part – it’s one thing every mama misses. šŸ™‚

    Oh how cool! I can still remember seeing my daughter’s elbow bulging from my belly. I was laying in the bathtub at the time.
