all-a-flutter

Mr. Doctor: So, have you felt the baby move yet?
Me: I don't think so. What would it feel like?
Mr. Doctor: Like a little flutter ... or gas.
Me: Then maybe I have!

Except last night there were no maybes about it. I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep when it happened.

Bradam fluttered. He flitted, she floated, he fleetly fled she flew.

Just call me flutterpated.

I have heard that they don't feel anything alike. I guess I just still have lots of gas.

We are so excited for you!

I have to say that is simply one of the best feelings in the world to feel...with every baby! Until about the 8 month when you want them to sit still!

That is great!!! I love feeling babies move. I used to get a big 32 oz. High C Fruit Punch for my 8:00 night class in school. It was entertaining to watch/feel him move and kept me alert in class.
