Jim felt the baby move!

Ok, two posts in one day... far outside my norm, but this one is well worth reporting.

We were sitting on the couch watching the Sweden v. Paraguay World Cup match and I felt the baby kicking pretty hard.

Now, I've been feeling LBC move on and off for the past month, since about week 14, but never like this. It started out feeling like a little muscle twitch and then sort of felt like popcorn popping in my abdomen. That's been a regular occurrence for the past few weeks. Today, however was different. The kicks were much stronger. So I put Jim's hand on my belly while we were watching the game and I felt the strongest kick I've felt yet. He felt it too... his head whipped around from watching the game to staring at my belly! Of course, he says he needs to feel it again for it to be proof that it actually happened, but we both know the truth. :)

Well, it looks like we have a soccer all star on our hands or your stomach.
Let's root for Sweden and call the baby Sven Cable or Svendela Cable!

well, if that's the case we'd better pick an Italian name since s/he was freaking out and kicking up a storm during the Italy match. Of course, s/he could just have been disguested by a horrific game. lol
