Sol-- I am also feeling consistent movement for the first time! I felt my first definite kick last night (after a week or two of "flutters") and today the baby has been kicking me in the same spot since I woke up!
So much to do:

This has never happened to me before and it was very bizarre. I also have restless leg syndrome, which might be related. Last night I got up and drank some Natural Calm (magnesium supplement) and was not bothered the rest of the night.
