I swear I'm not going to know what I'm feeling until the kid is popping out of me!
(Wow...that came off sounding way more bitter than I intended
I remember feeling that way too, with my DD. One day you'll sit there and think, you know, I have felt that funny feeling like four times this week.... I wonder if it's the baby? Even with this pregnancy, I kept trying to brush a bug off of my stomach. I even looked under my shirt, convinced I had a bug against my skin. But it was the baby
: and I've been pregnant before! And by 30 or so weeks, you'll probably be able to SEE the baby move! I remember my childless co-worker telling me that I looked like something out of Alien, the way you could see DD's legs/arms stretching, kicking and poking out of my stomach! FWIW, I am now 17 weeks and just starting to feel the baby relatively regulary but I still go days with out feeling him/her!
