The karate kid

I didn't really recognize the babies early movements. It didn't feel like it did with the other kids. Perhaps I have an anterior placenta- who knows. Within the last week I have started feeling kicks. Totally random kicks. Just one strong hi-ya!

Yesterday Olivia got to feel the baby kick for the first time. I have been waiting for that moment since I got pregnant. Every few days Olivia would ask if I could feel the baby move yet. Now she knows it's in there.

Suddenly I am so excited. The baby feels real. I love knowing it's alive inside me and moving around. I want to protect it with my life. And I can't wait to hold it in my arms. And to think I'm not even half way there yet...
