Fluttering Butterflies

Today, I felt my baby move for the very first time.

I was sitting in a beautiful church at the wedding of J’s cousin (congrats, Suzanne & Lou!). They were in the midst of reciting their wedding vows when I felt it —

Butterflies fluttering in my lower abdomen.

The moment lasted barely a second, but I knew exactly what it was.

“I just felt the baby move!” I whispered to J. He immediately put his hand on my stomach, and I had to inform him that it’s still way too early for movements to be felt externally.

Unfortunately, I haven’t felt the baby move since. But I know that the day can’t be far off when I’ll feel it move every day.

I love being a mother. Have I mentioned that lately?

  1. awwwh. the baby was moved by the vows. (pun totally intended)

  2. cuteeee! i felt mine around 15/16 weeks. look for the feeling of little gas bubbles popping down lower than they would be. that was a big sensation for me. i actually never had the butterfly type feelings really until later – so see if you notice the little poppin sensation, too! :)

  3. So happy for you! That must be a huge comfort, as well as just plain awesome. :)
