Aww cute, I still get butterflies when he says cute things. But then it happened again! And again! Jeez, why is my stomach so twitchy?
Then I realized, THE BABY WAS KICKING!!! I immediately grabbed Matthan's hand and said, "Feel this!!" It took a few seconds, but he said he could feel it! We just sat there during commercials with his hand on my growing belly, just under my belly button, feeling our little soccer player or ballerina kicking away. It was such a great experience!!
I REALLY felt the kicks coming when we were about 5 minutes from our apartment. We had to go through some heavy construction with a lot of pot holes and street damage. There was bump after bump after bump! About 30 seconds after the construction, the baby was kicking so much! I think it was just pay back for all of the bumps.
Ever since the end of the football game, I've been able to feel little kicks here and there. My mother in law told me that there will be a time when the baby kicks so much you just want them to stop, but I'm going to bask in this for as long as I can. I think it's safe to say that it has been a GREAT night!
