Yes, the baby is most definitely kicking now:)
I hope this picture isn't TMI for you sensitive folks but, I just have to say that it blows my mind that a baby a mere 5 inches in size could already be kicking me and I be feeling it so distinctly! Yesterday I was doubting myself because I had just assumed that it would be another few weeks at least before I felt any flutters but, today my doubts have been completely ERASED. Anyways, being my first child this is a bizarre feeling and it has definitely added a new level of awe to this pregnancy for me which I have so needed. I sometimes forget I am pregnant but, I will not be able to forget anymore with this punkin' reminding me that he or she is there! i would also like to point out that a lot of people have likened a baby's kicks to butterflies (it is a hard feeling to describe) but, for me it simply feels like someone is very gently tapping on the inside of my tummy...Heaven perhaps:). Just had to share because this has really blessed me today:).
