Kickin' away!

I've started to feel a few subtle kicks a few weeks ago. At first I thought it was my rumbling tummy - but tummy doesn't rumble only on the left side, does it?

Now the kicks and movements are a little more definite and more regular than before, and it's truly an amazing and magical experience! Hubby was the most excited one. There was one night when I felt the strongest kicks while we were lying on bed talking, so I took his hand and put it on my belly and he waited anxiously. It was quite a funny and cute experience for both of us that I couldn't help myself from giggling (plus, I'm a ticklish person) so it took quite sometime for him to feel the kicks. But at last the kicks came, a few times. Hubby asked if that was it. I said yes, and then he turned to my belly and said in a cute voice, "Hi in there! I love you!", and kissed my belly. I can sense that the baby feel loved, bcoz the mommy does! :)

I also noticed that my little one is the most active in the morning and at night. Especially when I'm lying down. The kicking and moving doesn't feel like butterflies fluttering, or popcorn popping, or a goldfish swimming around, like what I've read. Mine feels like... something (or rather, someone) is poking and probing around. It can get a bit ticklish sometimes.

Anyway, here's a video of baby movement I found on YouTube. It's amazing! I wonder if that's the baby's head or the leg....
