I have been feeling the baby kicking me pretty much everyday now. It's basically just a few taps here and there and it's not all the time. Well, my sister-in-law let me borrow a monitor that's suppose to allow you to hear the baby's heart beat. I haven't heard much of anything but it's fun to just listen and hear what the baby hears. Anyway, last night I was playing with this thing and as I moved it around, I would feel the little kicks (taps) in the same area. Once I was done listening, I laid there flat on my back and I put my hand on the baby. I actually felt the baby kick my hand! I couldn't believe it! I got to feel it at least 2 times! Eric was asleep and I woke him up to tell him. It's not anything that Eric can feel just yet because it's not something that happens all the time. Plus, most of the little kicks are still only something that only I can feel. This was just one of those moments and I may not feel this again for awhile especially since I'm just over 18 weeks along. It was just an exciting thing to actually feel the kicks on my hand. Now I'll probably be obsessed and try to feel it all the time. It's definitely an interesting feeling. I can't for him to feel the baby move.
Buddy, we hardly knew ye.
