So, for the past few days, I'm about 95% certain that I've been feeling my baby move! WooHoo! Of course, I won't be 100% satisfied until I can see it and feel it at the same time at my ultrasound next week. Only 6 more days! Followed very closely by my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving!!!! Yay!!!
Anyway, according to babycenter.com "Women have described the sensation as being like popcorn popping, a goldfish swimming around, or butterflies fluttering." I'd have to say that my feelings are much closer to popcorn than anything else. But usually only one or two pops. My actual first thought was that I felt like I was being "flicked" from the inside. I read somewhere that if you drink a soda (or pop, or whatever you choose to call it), the sugar and caffeine will get the baby moving and you can feel it more frequently, but I'm not having much luck. Of course, I've been nursing the same Diet Coke for about 4 hours now and only about 2/3 done with it, so maybe that's why I'm not having any results. Maybe I need to chug it next time???
Maybe I'll do that before my last Financial Peace University Class tonight... gotta do something to keep myself entertained, right??? Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the class, but Randy is the one who does all the writing in the workbook. Watching the sometimes very long videos can get a little boring. If I can get that baby moving in there, it might make the class go a little faster - besides, I promised Randy a shopping trip to Kohl's tonight after class. I guess they're having a big 50% off sale, and Kohl's is probably his favorite place to shop. I wonder how their maternity section looks...
Oooh! And on top of tonight being the last class, on Wednesday nights different groups from the church (missions, youth, etc) take turns preparing and serving dinner for everyone. Tonight, the North Tulsa Indian Methodist Church will be in charge of dinner and they are making Homemade Indian Tacos!!! I am so excited! Most of the dinners have been pretty normal stuff - pizza, tacos, soup, so we usually don't go - we just get some McD's or Wendy's on the way. But tonight, we are definitely eating at the church!!
Ok - I gotta get back to work, so I can get out of here on time. <3
