I felt something different yesterday and while I can't conclusively say it was definitely the baby, it certainly makes me more aware now.
I was sitting at my desk at work yesterday, reading Jewel's blog post about how she finally felt her baby move for the first time, and wondering to myself 'When am I going to feel that??' Knowing just how big that Hunter is getting, and just how active he's been at every ultrasound, it blows my mind that I haven't felt anything yet. So while these thoughts are swirling around in my brain, I realized I just need to start concentrating more on my belly during the moments when I'm sitting or laying pretty still.
And then I felt it!
A small pressure, a feeling of maybe a "push", twice in a row in quick succession. About an inch or two down and over to the left of my belly button.
What?!? My eyes widened and I put my hand on my belly and waited. I didn't feel it again, but then I started to wonder if I was just feeling something becuz I wanted to feel it so badly. It kind of reminded me of the way blood pulsing under your skin feels, that light, so I tried to convince myself that's all it was. But then I thought of how at my u/s on Monday, the x-ray tech had said Hunter's little tush was a little bit underneath my belly button. So that would put him in the area.
As I focused on my stomach and tried to rationalize with myself, I realized as well that it felt like "something" was in my belly. Duh, right? But no, seriously, again it was something I've never felt before. Kinda like a tennis ball in my belly, that feeling of a small "pressure".
Could it be possible I'm feeling the baby?
What did it feel like for you the first time, for those of you who've gone through it before OR are currently preggo? And how far along were you? I guess I just want to convince myself I am NOT crazy!
By the way, I tried to take a belly shot for you guys at work yesterday. It's slightly hard to see cuz I'm sitting, and slightly blurry cuz I took it with my cell phone, but you get the idea. I love watching my belly grow!!
