Tiny Bubbles

Wohoo! I can feel our baby wiggling around! I'm so excited. I started recognizing the feeling Friday afternoon at 16 weeks exactly. I don't feel them when I'm up and moving around, but if I sit for a while I can totally feel it now and then. And I've finally found the bonus of having a job where you sit ALL DAY LONG....I get to feel my baby wiggling. Oh and I know that everyone has a different way of describing the feeling, but I totally don't think it feels like butterflies/flutters. To me it felt like a tiny bubble popped and now that I feel it more often it feels just like a little flick. Oh I just love it!!

I'm so jealous of your new machine thingy to hear the baby! That's awesome! And yay for feeling the baby move!!!! I think that's the best part of being pregnant!

How exciting. With my first, 17-18 weeks, with my second 14 weeks, although my doctor swears that was too early...I swear it wasn't. Congratulations. And what a cool little doppler thingy to hear the heartbeat, how reassuring!

Yay! That is the coolest feeling ever! Until about eight months when they start kicking your lungs so hard, you cant breathe - haha. I am jealous of your doppler. I wanted one of those so bad when I was prego with my kids.

Yeah! How exciting! It's definitely the most incredible feeling ever! I always thought they felt like little muscle spasms. LOL!
