Corie’s Baby Blog: Butterflies … I Don’t Think So

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

I am 5 months in, and I finally felt my little wee one move.

It is funny because when we had our ultrasound about a month ago, he was flipping, turning and would not sit still.

Thor kept asking me if I could feel him.

Visually we could see our little nugget flopping around, but I could not feel a thing.

I felt awful!

How could I not feel my own son flipping around inside my belly?

Perhaps he was still too tiny for me to feel his movements.

A few weeks ago I felt a quick slice of pain. I tossed it up to well … gas.

Last week was the mother of all mother movements.

It came out of nowhere.

Suddenly I felt seasick.

Mind you so far (knock on wood) I have been fortunate to side step the morning sickness phase of pregnancy.

Knock on more wood; this has been an uneventful pregnancy.

Other than my body expanding in places I did not know could expand.

I finally felt whatever he was doing in there.

People often say the movements are compared to butterflies in the belly.

Mine felt more like Baby H was playing soccer or swinging around on the umbilical cord.

Whatever he was doing made me feel as I was going to toss-up my breakfast.

To be honest, I was a little scared.

With this being our first baby, you can read all the books and talk to a thousand people but until it happens to you…. you honestly do not know.

Now I know.

Now I’m a bit better prepared and have an idea of what to expect.

I’m sure it will change as our due date gets closer.

I might faint when I see a tiny hand or foot push against my belly from the inside.

Thor and I laugh about that moment now, but I think the two of us will be a bit loopy when we see it for the first time for ourselves. :)
