baby's first kick at 17 weeks

last Thursday, 26th February, i thought i felt baby move. it was at 5:20 am and i was wondering, "did baby really kick, or was it just my imagination?" the kick was like the feeling of butterflies churning in your stomach.

that same morning, i slept in the car on the way to work when the little one kicked again at around 6:30 am. that for sure wasn't a figment of my imagination 'cos it literally woke me up! i knew someone's having a grand time in my belly!

and this morning, i woke up again to the same sensation in my abdomen. the baby's wide awake, kicking and squirming inside me. i laid flat on my back and felt the "butterflies" again. it was so surreal!

i can't wait for the next coming days when i could feel the stronger kicks. that would be a blast, i suppose, especially for the Daddy-to-be :)

it's the kick we don't really mind experiencing, ano? :D there'll be more kicks in the weeks to come and the dad-to-be will definitely feel it for himself soon. i'm so happy for you! :)

hi che,
oh, yes! it's like our baby's way of talking to me & i'm totally enjoying it. it's one of the many perks of carrying the baby :)

I also felt quickening early in my pregnant, around the same time as you. That's when it suddenly felt so real that a life was inside me :) What a wonderful feeling!
