I Felt My Baby Moving!

felt baby moveThe other day while I was sitting at my desk typing away for CafeMom, something amazing happened. I felt one of my twins move! This is the first time for me, so I am overly excited. I immediately IM'd my husband and told him as tears welled up in my eyes. What a moment.

I am at the end of my 15th week and while some women don't feel any movement until 16 weeks or beyond, I'm having twins so maybe there is just less room and I can feel it? I know it wasn't gas...I've had a whole lot of that and it felt different.

Whatever the case, it made me so happy -- it was like the baby was communicating to me in some way.

When I got home from work, I sat in the same position I was in when baby starting moving. My husband took out his guitar and started playing to see if the babies would react. Sure enough, a few minutes later, movement again -- and he got to feel it, too.

Have you felt your baby move yet? Do you remember the first time you felt the movement?
