16 weeks, 5 days

He he - I just had to write my next entry in my pregnancy diary. I am sure I am feeling movement.

Everyone (including the books and websites and other information sources) says that it feels like butterflies and can be confused with wind first of all but I don't think it feels like that at all.

The night before last I had a dream that I felt the baby move. The next day, I wondered whether it actually happened but worked its way into my dream. Then last night, just before bed while watching tele and then in bed I kept feeling a kind of spasm inside about 3 inches below my belly button. I wasn't sure if it was the baby at first. I know it sounds strange but my heart was beating really strongly so that I could feel it in my tummy and I wasn't sure if I was just feeling that. Although, deep down I didn't really believe that because it did feel slightly different. The problem was that it just wasn't strong enough to be sure.

But then, just now while I was sitting reading I got the feeling again. I can describe it in two ways. It either feels like I am being flicked lightly (as with thumb and forefinger) from inside or, if you can imagine there are guitar strings in your lower abdomen and one is being gently plucked.

I wasn't really expecting to feel anything this soon but I've never felt anything like this so can only put it down to the baby moving.
