knock knock

Last night sitting balled up on the sofa contemplating all things that can go to hell with this new financial situation-- I was making myself crazy. So I finally got up, got a book, I balled back up again around the belly, and dove into my escape, fiction...
Then
I felt a knock, just like a knuckle tap under the flesh- a hello? and a few seconds later, a second one.

I have been feeling flutters and tickles, traces and imaginings of butterfly wings, and the gentle movement of curtains lifting in a breeze too gentle to feel since the cusp of week 15... but this? this was different.

Hello little one, I hear you. And OH I cannot wait to hear you again.

ISn't it - the best thing ever. I was reading the other night and the book, which was resting on my belly, kept jumping up and down as they kicked away.

So happy for you

Sweet! And it just keeps getting better from here. You'll even fall in love with the foot jammed into your ribs and the head that bounces on your bladder- oddly enough, I loved every movement I could feel, even the ones that hurt. Isn't it amazing? There's a PERSON inside you!!

I'm still following, and I apologize for not commenting lately. Would love to see your big belly and introduce you to my little angel some time!
