Houston! We Have Movement!

Imagine me laying in bed, restless, husband asleep. Don't worry, i'm not naked haha. Get those thoughts away. ANYWAY, i'm laying there watching CSI (I believe). For some odd reason I can not sleep for the life of me. It was about 11:30pm or so. All the sudden, I feel this popping sensation. Kind of like popping popcorn, but it only lasted a few seconds. Then I felt some fluttering, kind of like the 'butterflies' you get in your stomach when you are nervous. I didn't think anything of it at first. Then I laid there for a minute thought, 'oh that was a weird feeling.' Then it hit me! I realized it was the baby! At least that is what I figured, since I have never felt that popping before. It was the most insanely weird feeling ever and I was kind of dumbfounded at first. I think it was kind of like when I saw 'pregnant' for the first time; it was like I was in a dream, that it wasn't really happening.

I was then beginning to think that I was going crazy because i'm almost 17 weeks. I know that you can start to feel movement, but it's usually for those who are smaller. Let me tell you, I am no where near the 'small' side of the scale. I don't go to my OB again until the end of the month, but it will be nice to tell him I finally have felt movement. He asked me at the last appointment if I have felt the baby yet and I was disappointed when I told him no. Now though, i'm pretty excited. I forgot to tell the husband this morning before he left for work because I wasn't fully awake. I did end up telling him via text a little bit ago and he's excited. I can't wait for the day when he can feel the baby move too. It's all becoming surreal if you ask me.
