All of my reading material explains that I should feel the baby kick between now and week 20. At the beginning of the week I thought I might be experiencing the baby's movements, but couldn't be sure. The kicks are described as feeling like gas bubbles or butterflies. A couple days ago I felt more "gas bubbles" than I'm used to and wondered if I might be feeling our little miracle for the first time. One of our friends said the first time she felt her baby kick it actually made her laugh because it tickled. And last night I experienced that sensation for the first time. It felt like little butterfly wings fluttering in my belly. I'm anxious for the movements to become strong enough for Tim to feel the baby, too!

Nothing like feeling the baby move for the first time! I remember how active Chris and Tim were. Towards the end of my pregnancy with Tim, you could literally see him bouncing around! It was hysterical!
