Feel better now

Just went and tried to find baby's hb on doppler. Couldn't find it, but I did hear a lot of movement.
So I abandoned the doppler and just laid there with my hands on my lower ab.
Didn't feel anything at first, so decided to press in a little and really quick... and there it was... a kick back :D
I did it a couple more times and LO 'responded' to each one lol

I get why I haven't been feeling anything now. The kicks are pretty low and when I felt them happen with my hand, I didn't feel anything other than that. Just in an area where I guess I can't feel it very well.

PHEW! It's nice to actually feel the movement now. Have that worry and reassurance instead of having to rely on the doppler.

When I was walking back to the comp room, just the thought that I was gonna be someone's momma struck me.
I'm gonna be Mommy. Man that is strange! I know it's not that way for a lot of women, but for myself... it's just weird.
It's like even though I'v wanted this for a while now... to actually have this reality finally... just weird.. lol

And finally before I get off so I can stop procrastinating about everything....
I really hope I get all teary at the scan on Monday. Only b/c I know if I do, DH will and I SO want to see that. hehe
I dunno if I will though. I kinda go in to 'awe' mode... at least I did with my previous ultrasounds.... so it's sort of a surreal moment that doesn't feel like it's happening to me. That make sense?

So glad you got reassurance! The movement must make it seem more real. I think I would feel the same way -- even after trying so long, it would be SO weird to think of actually being a parent!!
You're gonna be a great mommy :-D

Aww, thank you :D
You are going to be a wonderful mommy too. I can just see your child being someone important that helps so many people b/c you and your DH brought him/her up that way. The world is gonna be that much better b/c of it :)
