I kept thinking I was feeling something.
So far, whenever I think maybe I'm feeling the baby move (bubbles! swimming goldfish!), I'm actually just hungry, gassy, or needing to pee.— Kim Rohrer (@kimskitchensink) March 14, 2016
But this morning, it actually did feel different. I know, I know they always say "oh, you'll know." But I was skeptical! I didn't know what I didn't know! I figured it would just feel like gas, but a little different.
It feels like...pop rocks, on the left side of my belly. Or like bubbles (ugh, just like they said it would). I don't know about a goldfish, but my friend described it as being "like the wingbeat of a butterfly but like if you swallowed it and now it's in your abdominal cavity", which is very accurate.
It happened this morning for about 5 seconds, and then this afternoon for a full couple of minutes. And it was totally trippy.
Bring it on, 2nd trimester! Bring. It. On.
And is it just me or does The Quickening sound like the name of a horror movie?
