On Thursday night, at 20 weeks and 4 days, I felt my first little baby flutters! I had just eaten dinner (and crushed a banana pudding milkshake from Chik-fil-a) and started to feel a little something that I thought might be Ellison wiggling around. I wasn't sure at first, but it kept on for a little while, so I told Barrett that I thought I finally felt her! He was pumped, and pulled out the video camera. :-)
It's the happiest, sweetest, most awsome feeling in the whole wide world. I'd heard people describe it in different ways...like gas bubbles or swimming fish. To me, it was almost like a little vibration...like being kissed by butterfly wings. I've felt her a little each day since then...usually after I eat. I had a real live latte this morning (my first real coffee drink in about 4 months) and she really got a little crazy after that! Her little flutters are so sweet now! I can't wait for Barrett to be able to feel her too, but for now I'm enjoying this little time we have for just us.
