I think it moved! (Cindy wrote this)

So, I'm 19 weeks pregnant now, and I have maybe 2 pair of pants that fit. Only a couple more weeks before the big ultra sound. I'm so excited. I can't wait to see what our baby looks like now. Chris and I are slowly trying to make our condo a little more livable and roomy. We have to maneuver things around a bit to make it all work but right now we're hopeful.
So I know people start feeling the baby move before 19 weeks, but I just assumed I wouldn't even be able to tell so I didn't even think about it. On Sunday, one of my friends had asked me if I felt it yet and then gave me a better description then I had heard of what to expect. It's like a muscle twitch, only you will feel it a couple of times in the same spot. She also mentioned it's more noticeable when you are lying down.
That night I decided to actually take the time to focus on what I was feeling while I was lying in bed, and I felt it. I couldn't believe it. At first I thought, I think that's it, but I doubt it, there's no way I'm really feeling the baby. There's so many things going on with my body right now, how do I know that's really it. But it was such a different distinct feeling. A mixture of muscle spasms and butterflies in your stomach. Anyway, now I recognize it more. It's so exciting.

So cool! Now you probably feel the baby move more and more. It gets pretty crazy, like you have an alien in your body or something. I hope you find out what your having!
