Feeling the first kicks

I am 18 weeks pregnant now and, as I thought my bump must be showing a little now I asked Sam to help me take my first ‘tummy out’ “Bumpie” this morning. Looking at it from above I thought it was really quite big (I’ve always had a pretty flat stomach so this was the biggest thing I’ve ever seen on the front of my tummy) so when I saw the side-on photo Sam had taken it really made me laugh at just how small it looked!

I’ve also been feeling flutters and small movements for 2 weeks but after a big meal with friends tonight they felt even stronger after I got into bed so I put my hands on the area I could feel the movement inside and I felt definite movement on the outside! Like a push outwards. It was so amazing feeling it properly for the first time and Sam felt it too.
