I think, for real, that I felt AndyZ kick me just now. TWICE. I really think this was it. This time.
I thought I felt it about 2 or 3 weeks ago but I wasn’t sure. If you’re prone to negative outcomes to pregnancy, you never assume anything. Hell, I wasn’t even letting myself seriously consider having this baby until the last ultrasound. Hence, the limited pregnancy chatter. So, that day I was very quick to say, “Maybe…” after and before telling the family that I might have felt the baby move.
Since then (I’m 19w1d right now) I’ve felt several other small movements or hits that may (or may not) be the baby moving. Nothing concrete. I don’t think. Hell, it may be at that point that any other woman would be wincing right now, while I’m all I just don’t know….
But just NOW – as in: just a few seconds before I started typing – I really think the baby kicked me. Twice. He did it once and I was all Oh! That was it! I think! and then one second later Oh! Again!.
So, here it is. I think I’m really going to have a baby now. In case you were in doubt.
