My Pregnancy Journal ~ Week 16
Two swift movements. Deep within. Is that what I think it is?
Two days later. The presents unwrapped, the clutter hidden away. I'm sinking down into the first peace of the evening. A little body snuggles into my side and lays his head on my shoulder...There it is again.
Just a small flutter.
I reach down with one hand and press into the skin of my abdomen. Searching. Will my fingertips fill a kick? A push back in the palm of my hand? Not yet. But there is a sure flutter. Movement inside.
The little one sees my hand and lifts his head. "Is your baby awake?" he asks, wide-eyed.
"I think so," I smile.
He smiles too and I wonder if there is anything better in life than this.
