Uncertain as I am, I feel this is an occasion that needs immediate blogging:

I think I just felt Bean move for the first time.

Now, this may seem odd to any of you who haven't been pregnant, but it is actually kind of hard to tell. As a first-timer myself, I can't be sure it wasn't gas, indigestion, hunger, or any of another hundred things that can happen in the stomach region.

But this time, I think, it was Bean!

That's always exciting news especially for a first timer like yourself. This is my 3rd but it still thrills me every time I feel her move.

Andrew said...

Good stuff. How exciting. I'm sure it was Bean giving you a hug.

WW said...

Amazing, Stace. I'm sure it WAS Bean. Women have a way of feeling these things. I've felt it myself.

OK, no I haven't. But I sometimes I wish I could.

Now, I hope for his or her sake that you have another name in mind? How would YOU like to be called Bean Irving?

Or Bean Whateveritisyou'replanningonusingasalastname?

Mind you, if it's Bean, I would hope you would at least make it Pinto Bean, or Kidney Bean, or Brown Bean...

Or Bean There Done That.

Or something.

WW said...

Hey, it just occurred to me, didn't someone write a song that made you famous?

It's called Amazing Stace, I think.

Stace said...

Menchie - I can't wait until I feel it more definitely... a friend was telling me that he could see his baby's hands and elbows poking out from his wife's belly, I hope mine does that too!!

Andrew - Can one hug from the inside? :)

WW - I'll let you know the name after the 20 week ultrasound, when we know the gender. That's on the 16th Feb. :)

Hilary said...

Tap, tap, tap. Almost a twitch, but far less rhythmic. That was my first awareness of movement. Always very exciting. I'm glad for you, Stace. :)

Bean is no doubt constructing a cool escape pod using everyday uterine objects..
afterall, Bean is half Aidan ergo scientificky stuff will come naturally.

As soon as the legs are fully developed you should consider implanting a little stationary bike.

Stace said...

Hilary - it felt more like a hummingbird on steroids... woooosh gurgle swirl!! So hard to describe :P

Donn - you're giving Bean ideas... can't you wait until it's born to start corrupting it?! :)

Stace! This is so exciting! The first time I felt Daniel move, I had come home from work, soooo tired, and I laid down on my bed on my stomach and immediately felt what seemed like a little worm wiggle in my belly and I came up off of that bed ecstatic!!! It was unbelievable! I am sure that what you felt was Bean moving about! Mothers, even new ones, just know, as WW said! ((HUGS))

OMG, I remember when I first felt Tomas, my eldest. I was in the fern section of a Plant Nursery here and my friend was with me. I was walking quietly when I felt him move ad I was like, "OMG, Angie, I felt the baby move! Quick quick come feel it, we cried and laughed and sat together". It was so awesome...and I am so pleased for you Stace :)
