Last night I was lying in bed, trying to will the baby to kick where I could feel it. I am so anxious for that stage. I am looking forward to having the companionship, to there being someone else besides the dog whose presence is felt in my house. And while I was lying there thinking about her, I suddenly remembered the doppler.
I found her easily, and grinned. And then called my parents entirely too late at night so they could both listen.
I'm still mildly wary of the whole thing. When friends get excited and squeal "You're having a baby!", I sometimes feel a stab of fear. Like we all need to rein it in and be calmly happy instead of cartwheels happy.
But I calmly happily listened to baby's heartbeat last night.
I'm not sure how far along you are, but I understand that different people feel kicks at different times during pregnancy. I always thought they'd feel like actual "kicks", but I remember thinking that they felt more like little air bubbles - like the ones in an aquarium might feel if inside your belly! Another trick I remember was to drink a few oz of orange juice and lie still on the floor or bed. The sugar rush will get the baby moving.
I've never posted before, but do enjoy reading. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!
