Crazy Early

Sam woke me up this morning and after I took him to use the potty he wanted to lie in bed with me and Will. Gee, kid, you want all the hard stuff. I have to lie in bed and wake up slowly? Twist my arm, why don’tcha?

While he chattered softly in the crook of my arm, I felt something. I felt the baby moving. Two or three times. And just in case I tried to talk myself out of what I’d felt, I also felt my uterus doing its stretchy thing a few minutes later.

We’ll be at ten weeks on Tuesday. And the baby is doing backflips.

When Will woke up a few minutes later he rolled over and started to tell me something about the history of delicatessens in America (yes, really). I interrupted, “I’ve got a better story.”

    That is sooooo awesome! I remember being able to feel my second one early too, or maybe I just knew what i was feeling by then. Either way, YAY BABY!!!!!!!!!

    I felt Sam early too, and the internet was the only place that believed me. (I mentioned it here.) But this felt JUST LIKE it feels at like 20+ weeks, only smaller. Last time I had no way of knowing that, so I can’t say if that’s what it felt like this early.

    Yay baby! In my experience, the second time around you definitely feel it earlier, as you said, you know what it is you are feeling.
