It's a live one!
The morning of August 17th, 2008, I woke up and was just lying in bed, enjoying the warm bed and thinking about what I wanted for breakfast. These days I'm always thinking about what I'd like to eat next, being 17 weeks pregnant. As I was daydreaming of eggs-over-medium, I felt a little stirring in my belly. It definitely wasn't a hungry tummy grumble. It definitely wasn't digestion (my stomach was empty). I hadn't moved suddenly, so it couldn't be shifting due to gravity. It was a fluttering and then a tightness on one side that slowly relaxed. This was the first time that I could say without a doubt that I felt baby move inside of me. It was sort of strange but mostly amazing.
