What's Kickin'?

Jeff felt the baby kick a few times last night, which is always such a cool moment. It makes him more a part of things and only further solidifies that there is actually a little person growing inside me (besides the fact that he no longer gets the leftover food on my plate)!

The "popcorn kicks" started late last week and happen just after I eat. I thought they seemed pretty strong, but I wasn't sure if they were strong enough for someone else to feel. But they are -- Jeff felt every one of them. Not sure what that means this early in the pregnancy... either we have a very strong boy kicking away or another feisty girl.

So much for my "easy-going" second child... :o)

Now wait a minute, you Jeff are both second in the birth order. Tell me please, why would you expect 'easy-going' to come from your union? ;o)

That's awesome! How exciting! I can't wait to feel for myself! Love you all (baby b #2 too!)

That's cool. I'm 20 weeks today and some of the kicks feel strong, but Ben hasn't been in the right place at the right time to feel them yet. :(

I'm hoping for an "easy going second child" too. One feisty one is enough! :P

I remember you feeling them early on w/Emma, you felt them before I did and I was a month ahead. He/she is just getting all the energy out now so they'll be super mellow when they come out. But why does this make me change my guess from boy to girl now?
