I started feeling this wee one move fairly early. Right around fifteen and a half weeks. It was just little flutters in my lower abdomen, they made me smile. A lovely little certainty. Now, as the weeks have slowly ticked by the flutters have become stronger and our little one kicks as if to say, "hello" and respond to our inquiries. We have placed our hands on my bump and have felt the wee ones movements against our palms, sometimes like waves, other times just like it is knocking against me like one would a door.

Hello wee one, we are excited to meet you. We love you already.
