I am pretty sure I felt something 2 days ago. Now, keep in mind I have no idea what I am expecting to feel. I have felt weird "fluttering" here and there, but nothing that would have stopped me in my tracks and make me think it was the baby. In all honesty I thought it was either a muscle switch or gas. My body has had the most bizarre sensations and feeling in the last 4 months, so who knows. The other day i was sitting on our chair in the living room watching TV and out of no where it was like someone had hit me in my lower stomach, from the inside. It wasn't like it hurt, but it was just not the fluttering feeling everyone has told me to look for. It was more of a flick, like if someone were to lightly flick your ear. I stopped and pushed lightly on my stomach and 2 seconds later it happened again. It wasn't hard enough to feel on the outside. It was cool, that is if I really did feel our baby. If not I am on crack and have some serious gas!! I can't say I have really felt it since, but I have heard in the beginning it is normal not to feel it everyday. So we will see.

Other than that, life is pretty uneventful. I started cheating and have been sorting Christmas decorations. I even started putting a few things up in our house. If I wasn't having Thanksgiving here for my family, I would probably have my tree up already. I know it is a little early, but I work retail and I don't have time or the desire to do anything after Thanksgiving. We are way to busy and I am to tired when I get home. And this year it is the shortest time frame between Thanksgiving and Christmas, only 4 weekends in between. (Personally I think this in wonderful! the shorter the better.) I shouldn't feel to bad, there are actually a few people on our street that have their Christmas lights on their house and they have been turning them on at night. I

was trying to get DH to put up my lights last weekend-don't worry I won't be turning them on until thanksgiving. It was in the 60's and beautiful outside. He chose not to, and now he wants to get them up and today is a high of 27 degrees, with a wind chill of 18. Maybe he should have listened to me last weekend when I told him to take advantage of the nice whether instead of doing it in the cold. But what do wives know?!?!?

How exciting! I am waiting anxiously for first movements, but I'm also not sure how you can tell between real movements and all the other stuff going on in there. :)

Sounds wonderful!! It feels so good to finally have it out in the open and I am so excited to have you to go through this with as well!! I can't wait to find out what we are both having - two boys, two girls, a boy and a girl!!! I can't wait - no matter what they are going to be great friends! Love you!!

That's a really good idea - put lights up now before it's freaking freezing! I may just suggest that.

And YES! That was the baby. :) Congrats!
