Feeling the Babies Flutter!

I am 17 weeks pregnant today and into my 5th month! I read that this next week my babies will be hearing noises like my heart beating and the blood flow. They will even hear noises outside my body too. This past Thursday while I was laying in bed, I started to feel something like a poke! I quickly realized I was feeling my babies move! I'm pretty sure it was one of the monos that I felt first because of the location of the movement. I started feeling a little from Baby B too. Yesterday I finally felt Baby A! I heard that it's harder to feel the flutterings when they are really low (like A is). Seeing our babies on ultrasound was extremely cool, but feeling them is a whole new marker. I am guessing that later on I will get kicked a little too hard (maybe in several areas at once) and get kept awake at night because of the party going on in the uterus, but for now I love it!

The belly pic really shows a difference this week! It's so funny- day to day I don't feel like I'm getting bigger, but when I look at a week's difference on the pics, it is obvious!

It was fun to see friendly faces at the St. Olaf football game. Everyone we knew seemed to have heard through the grapevine, and we got many well wishes and congratulations. I even got to see my college track and cross country coach! On the drive down I-35 to the game, we were going about 75, but Odin still wanted to put his head out the window. He is such a typical dog! I hope you like this video- a little comic relief! (Make sure you watch till the end.) Have a great rest of the week!
