This pregnancy is so very, very different from my pregnancy with Levi. But, there's one similarity that I cherish. Both of these munchkins kicked on the same week....lucky number 14. I think with Levi that would have been around May or early June. I had been awake for a few minutes, but I was still lying in bed enjoying the way the light was pouring through the window. The stillness of the morning was so very nice....and, then I felt this flutter like a butterfly had been let loose inside of me. I thought for sure I must be imagining things, but I felt it again. I knew it was him in there. Floating around and kicking to his hearts content. If I had to make a list of unforgettable moments in my life this would be near the top...right behind the first moment I laid eyes on my sweet little boy.
It wasn't long before the flutters turned to full fledged kicks and then to complete acrobatic workouts. Oh. my. stars. This child could not have moved any more than he did. He was almost never still, and I loved every moment of it....okay, I didn't love the hiccups, but other than that movement was bliss.
Now we're on to baby number two. Where does time go? This one's movements took me by surprise. I thought for sure I wouldn't feel this little one so early. I mean, really, what a fluke to feel them at 14 weeks! But, then, one day, I was sitting at the computer browsing through blogs, and oh. What was that? Sweetness! Little tiny baby flutters.
Sigh. I just love it. I've felt those fluttery kicks once more since then. I wonder if s/he will be a mover like big brother was. I hope so. With all of the differences I hope this one thing stays the same...minus the hiccups. Poor Levi was plagued with them even after he entered the world.
When did you feel your babies move? I'm so curious.
