OH! What was that?!? Oh, it was just gas…

So I’m just entering week 18 and according to the books sometime between 16-20 weeks I should feel the baby and it will feel like a little flutter in my belly.  So I sit and I wait because I still can’t understand how I can have something the size of an avacado in my belly rolling, tugging the umbilical cord, etc and I just don’t feel it.

Every now and again I think, “OHH!  Was that a flutter??”  But then about 10 seconds later I either burp or fart – much to my dismay.

I have to imagine that once it starts moving it’ll be wonderful but then eventually it’ll get old as all I’ll want the kid to do is calm down… but for now I just can’t wait!!
