Movements or......

So the past couple of weeks I have felt some occasional something down there that seems different than usual, like maybe there is something moving around down there! At just a tad over 17 weeks I am at the point where some people start feeling movements, so this does not surprise me, especially since I am WAY in tune to what my body is doing just in case something bad is happening. Not to mention the fact that I am laying still all day, so there is a lot more time for me to have a chance to feel even the slightest thing.

It kind of feelis like someone is just taking their finger and rubbing it against my belly on the inside. The main sensation I feel is when babyb shifts positions in there. It's like I can feel the pressure of him/her in whatever spot he/she happens to be. In the morning, it tends to be up higher toward my belly button, in the day a bit farther down. And then every once in a while there are these "twitches" on either the right or the left side, kind of feels like when you get a muscle twitch, only I don't think it's my muscle..... or is it? This is the excitement for me every day, wondering if that is my little baby in there, dancing away.

I hope that is your little baby swimming around in there, Bec! I'm sure you'll know for certain pretty soon when those kicks and nudges become unmistakable!

By the way, I saw a news article awhile back about a woman who found a dead baby turtle in her container of Folger's coffee. I have to admit that after I read that I poked around in each container of coffee I bought to check for dead animals. :)

Apparently it was packaged in New Orleans after the hurricane and well, the place had been flooded...

That is too funny, but gross at the same time. You never know what's gonna happen!

How fun that you are starting to feel that little one moving!

Some of us who come knocking at your door are pretty strange. :)

Stumbled unto your blog from a post left at A Little Pregnant by Purple Kangaroo...

Firstoff, congratulations on your little one! Those sensations you are feeling definately sound like baby!

On the twiches, I have a pretty good hunch that they are baby hiccups!

Oh the things you miss about being pregnant when you read someone else going through them!

Best wishes on a healthy (remaining) pregnancy and a healthy baby!
