A Kicking New Year

Last night, I lay in bed watching the the bright-green numbers on the clock change. 11:52. 11:53. 11:54.

A flutter rippled across my belly, just below my navel. I waited, hardly believing what I was feeling.

Then a volley of kicks and punches errupted, and I could feel him working his way back and forth along my stomach.

"Tap, Tap, Tap" went his feet, happily tattooing out a rhythm on my abdomen.

"Thump, thump, thump," went my heart.

What a great feeling!

I agree, Mopsy. The kicks are by far the best part of pregnancy. I have been awaiting these with baited breath. It has taken a much longer time to feel this baby than it did with his brother.

Oh, how wonderful!
