18 weeks & kicking
Here is a photo of me at 18 weeks! This week I am feeling a lot of light baby kicks here and there - mostly, right after I eat. I imagine the babies are communicating with me, "Thanks for that yummy food, Mom!!" A lot of people told me the movement would feel like "butterflies" but Joan M. described it exactly how I feel it - "like someone is flicking me with their finger from the inside". Sometimes it surprises me but most of the time it's subtle enough to be a really pleasant reminder that the babies are doing well. I am pretty sure I feel Baby A moving more than Baby B, but that's probably due to where they are located. I'm feeling pretty great overall. I had an acupuncture appointment yesterday. I've been going to acupuncture regularly since April. Susan my acupuncturist has helped get my body ready for the embryo transfer process, the pregnancy, and she has also worked wonders to help me feel my best during this process. I always leave her practice feeling very refreshed and ready to tackle the next set of adjustments coming my way.
