A Moment...

...Or maybe I should say a movement.

Kev was able to feel the baby move last night!!!

I think baby Reig's might be a swimmer...I was laying on the bed and he (or she) was squirming like crazy. So much, that I wondered if I could feel them on the outside. I put my hand on my tummy for a few minutes and was pretty sure that I could feel them. Although I wasn't positive, because I knew I could feel it from the inside, so I wasn't sure if it was just a mental thing.

I asked Kev if I could borrow his hand, and he gave me a weird look like, "what do you want my hand for?". As I grabbed it I told him I wanted to see if he could feel the baby move. He got super excited. We sat there quiet for a minute waiting for him (or her) to 'swim' by again.

And then the baby did! I was just about to ask if he felt it, when he pulled back his hand and had a total look of shock! It was priceless! I wish I could have captured it.

I remember the first time I felt the baby and now I'll remember the first time Kevin felt him (or her) too!

That's really fun! In a few more weeks (like maybe around 26-27) see if your husband can hear your baby's heartbeat through your belly. It's really cool!
