Woooooow.<br><br>
I have been feeling his kicks mostly in my pelvic and lower abdominal area, but today I was feeling some kicks around my belly button and just above. The kicks had been feeling stronger than usual on and off today, so at one point, I put my book down and lifted my shirt just to watch.<br><br>
It's subtle, but definite. I can actually SEE his movement now!!!<br><br>
I am so amazed.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat">

Me too, esp. when on the computer as my belly is against a black background. I get a big kick out of it, no pun intended! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Wow! I can't wait until I can see this little one moving. I really want it mostly for DH and my DD who really can't feel the babe moving.<br><br>
How far along are you guys? I'm coming up on my 23rd week here.

It's always so much more real to everyone around when they can see movement, isn't it?<br>
I feel like I felt movement earlier this pg than in my other pgs and have seen movement earlier too.

Our little unborn seems to be attracted to DH like a magnet. It's really funny. Whenever he puts his hand on my tummy it seems like I can feel baby rush toward his hand and snuggle up underneath it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes">

I felt a kick from the outside for the first time this week (as opposed to just being able to feel it from the inside). I was laying on the couch with my hands on my stomach, watching TV, and all of a sudden I got a kick that moved my hand. I can't WAIT until my DD can put her hands on my stomach and feel it; I've been waiting for that since the day I peed on a stick.

I just started seeing kicks this morning! It was so cool, I wasn't expecting it for awhile.<br>
Ds will jump when he's in my arms if the baby kicks him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We saw them Sunday too! At least that's when I got the idea to actually look. And the night before DH FINALLY got to feel them, he's been trying for ages now. Baby's finally not shy about kicking for other people I guess!<br><br>
Today, I think jumping jacks are on the daily exercise routine, because I'm feeling them EVERYWHERE! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

How exciting! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I love later on when you can see them doing big somersaults in there. Congrats on seeing your little one moving!!
