I don’t have a lot of time, but I wanted to get this one recorded. I’m trying to finish grading tests and still get to bed at a reasonable hour so I can wake up super early (as in, 3:30 a.m.) to get to school with enough time to plan out the day. I’ve discovered that I become pretty worthless as far as getting work accomplished as soon as my last class of the day is finished, so today I just gave up and came home after school and took a nap. Unfortunately this means a lot of work to do in the morning.
But in the meantime, I think I’m feeling the babies move. I don’t know how to describe it. I’ve heard people say it starts out like flutters, and I’ve heard other people say it kind of feels like gas. This doesn’t feel like either. I can just feel something going on in my stomach area, different from anything I’ve felt so far. It’s kind of like a tickling sensation, but there’s also some pressure behind it. If I wasn’t pregnant and were to feel such a thing, I would be worried that I had bug bites, or that I was about to enact that horrible scene from Alien, so I’m hoping neither of those is the case, and that this is, in fact, the babies. Finally.
