Knowing there is a baby growing inside of you is one thing, but once you can actually FEEL that baby kicking inside of you , now that’s the best thing about pregnancy.
I am 17 weeks right now and have been feeling those much awaited for teeny little baby kicks for about a week. IT’S THE BEST. I have waited for this since peeing on that stick. It’s one of the things I absolutely loved when I was pregnant with Ivy. Seeing her
hand, leg, arm, butt, well actually, whatever unrecognizable body part it was moving across my huge stomach, was utterly amazing. Like, YEP, I have a BABY in there (shocker). However uncomfortable it was when jabbing a rib or pushing on your bladder to make you pee 10 million times in a day, it was still reassuring that baby was alive and active. And to imagine what she was doing in there?! So cool. God I love science.
Now, I am still absolutely loving those teeny little baby kicks. But this time around, I’m all like, analytical about it. Like, oh s**t, baby is kicking and it’s midnight. Does this mean this baby will be a night owl? Does this mean it will have its days and nights mixed up? Does this mean that I won’t get any sleep at nights? Does this mean that I’m ridiculous about trying to figure out my baby’s patterns already? (Hopefully not all yes answers in there)
Excuse me while I go attempt to sleep train my unborn child :/
