This past week I reached another pregnancy milestone - I felt the baby move! Everyone had told me that it would feel like "flutters" or "bubbles" across my belly. They were wrong. I can definitely feel pokes.
At first there was just 1 so I wasn't sure what I was feeling and didn't want to announce that it was movement. A couple of days after that I didn't just feel a poke, I felt a definite "poke, poke, poke"! And a few days later, I felt a real kick.
The movement isn't consistent yet. I only seem to feel it in the evening when I'm sitting on the couch and when my bladder is getting full. Plus having an anterior placenta makes feeling any movement a challenge!
