Kicks and Lumps

I've been feeling movement for about two weeks now, but its on a whole new level now.  Thursday afternoon, I had just gotten home from work and settled up on the sofa for a little bit, when I got the best surprise ever: A real, solid KICK (or punch, I can't really tell, especially since there are eight limbs in there).  I had my hand right on the spot where the kick occurred and totally felt it.  It was AWESOME. At first, I thought it was in my head, but a few seconds later is happened again.  Then, after those two nice solid punches to my insides, this lump started to form, to the left and slightly above my belly button.  I could gently push on it and feel it was firm, like one of them was pushing back.  I'm not entirely sure what it was, be is foot or hand or head, but it was there and so funny to me.

I just laid there is hysterics, laughing because I was beside myself, but totally disappointed that Eric wasn't home from work to experience it.  Nothing else happened for the rest of the night, but ever since then, there have been several times during the day (or night) where I definitely feel them... not just the flutters and rolls of them moving that has been present for the past two weeks, but real active kicking and/or punching.  I think I may be overcompensating the ability to feel it from the outside, since I am feeling it so much inside, because Eric still hasn't been able to feel it yet (even on Saturday night as we lay in bed, and I had three solid kicks), but hopefully it will happen soon!

These mile markers make it all worth it, right?


  1. Yay! That has to be the most exciting thing in the world. I drive my pregnant friend crazy wanting to feel her baby kick all the time. I'm so happy you are getting to experience this. Hopefully, your hubby will feel it soon!

  2. THAT IS SO GREAT! Isn't that the best part by far?? You get to feel everything times TWO! LUCKY!
