Feeling movement!!

I'm 17 weeks along, and I'm starting to feel some movement in there! It is such an amazing thing! For me, it feels like a muscle spasm or twitch. Can't wait to start feeling real kicks!

I used to love feeling my boys moving around - until they got too big and there wasn't enough room for them and then it really hurt!
I was so jealous of my FSIL when she was sitting rubbing her belly a couple of weeks ago, I loved being pregnant so much!

Ha, I had a friend who cringed every time she felt kicks. She thought it felt weird. I actually can't wait!

Sometimes the movements are mellow and even cute, but most of the time I also feel like cringing lol. It is so strange that I have absolutely no control over my body and it is not all that pleasant when he knees me where my intestines are lol.
I do, however, freak out when he does not move for hours on end, and rather get 100 painful kicks than worrry about the fact that he is not moving. All I care about now is that he is ok :)

Aw congrats!  To me this is the best part of pregnancy!  I also felt LO move at 17 weeks, but in my case it felt more like a ball rolling under my skin, or like someone was nudging my from the inside.. so strange but so amazing!  The rolls turned to taps about a week later, and you're right, those feel like twitches!  Now at almost 26 weeks, the kicks are so hard!  My whole tummy jumps!  My stomach gets hard in certain places when she pushed her back (or head?) against me.  I also feel several pops at once, like her arms and legs are going wild.  The only uncomfortable feeling I've gotten is when she kicks my right hip bone.  I'm super ticklish there and it makes me flinch every time!  I also get this sensation that feels like ants crawling on my insides, I'm thinking fingers maybe? 


I will definitely miss this part of pregnancy!
