Lil Community: Lots of Baby Movement!

There's nothing like feeling your baby move inside you. This post was submitted by Beaner in The Pregnancy Posse group.

I had to share this amazing news with some women who would definitely understand my excitement. Last night, while sitting on the couch watching TV, I felt the baby move. I've been feeling him or her for about a week now, really subtle movements, but this time, the movements felt stronger. And when I placed my hand on my bare belly, I was shocked — I felt the baby kick into my palm! I didn't think I'd be able to feel anything on the outside of my belly for a while. It was so incredible that I started tearing up. Then I felt it again, and the tears really started flowing. It finally felt real, that I'm actually pregnant and going to be a mom, even though I'm 19 weeks along now. If I get this emotional about a few little movements, I'll be bawling my eyes out when the baby really starts kicking! Fellow moms-to-be, have you been feeling your baby move too?

Talk about motherly things on your mind at The Pregnancy Posse group over in the LilSugar Community.

Sweet! I miss that feeling sometimes. It's such a great feeling to really feel the life inside you. Don't think those were the last tears, too. My sister-in-law is in labor right now (as in any second now, I'm so excited!) and as I was watching my baby sleep in the morning I bawled! The first time I saw her. I was scared to death, but that instant love I felt was the most amazing thing ever (I'm kinda choking up while thinking about it again ;)

that's sweet! and if you think you're emotional now, wait till they put the baby on your stomach after you have him/her! I bawled my eyes out this last time, haha.
