Baby Movement

I've started to feel the baby move.

I'm not sure how to describe that feeling. It's like feeling little bubbles popping against the inside of my stomach. It feels like our baby's tiny limbs are bumping against the uterine wall as he/she takes a little swim in there.

It's the feeling of life.

Even more difficult to describe are the emotions I experience in my heart when I feel those little jabs.

Wonder that a little human being is growing inside me. Excitement at the the thought of our baby's tiny fingers and toes which are contributing to the movement. Amazement that I am that baby's mother.

And when I remember how we waited and prayed for this, and how I used to worry it would never happen, that maybe I wasn't meant to have a child - there are some emotions that burst in my soul and encompass all the others.

I am humbled and awed by the great power of our God, Who is knitting this baby together in my womb, Who holds the world together, and Who is the Giver of Good Things.

And I am filled with gratitude that the Lord has allowed me to take part in such a miracle.

So amazing! I remember those first flutters & kicks and being so still so I wouldn't miss a moment of it! And it's incredible to hold my wiggling 7 month old & know he is the little baby who was kicking me! :) You've described these moments so beautifully!

That's so amazing!!! I've started to wonder when I will be able to feel the baby move.

I had what I thought was a tiny muscle spasm in my lower abdomen, but then I wondered if maybe I was feeling our little one. I know it's still too early, but I am officially getting impatient about it. :)

how exciting! It just feels your heart with joy each time you feel him/her move, doesn't it? Even though her kicks are starting to hurt sometime, I still just LOVE feeling my little girl move. It's just the best assurance that she's ok :-)

It's the best feeling in the world, isn't it? Like you, I wondered if I would ever experience it myself and now all I want to do is lay in bed with my hand on my tummy all day to feel his every move :) What a miracle!! Congratulations!
