As I would say when I was a kid 'I have Butterflies, huge Monarch Butterflies!' Well, I felt my first set of real Monarch Butterflies on Wednesday, and I think they were the biggest Monarchs I have ever felt. It was so great to feel the little baby. At first I thought that is new, do I need to go to the bathroom? Do I need to eat? Am I full? Am I on a roller coaster? And then I realized, it was her (we are calling a her these days for the sake of not calling her an it). I was in the car with my family taking my little brother to the MTC. I felt 4 little flutters and then realized what was going on. Later that night I turned to lay on my side - apparently I am not supposed to lay on my back anymore, there are so many rules during pregnancy - And I felt many little movements once again. It was a neat step in the pregnancy, but I also need to admit, it was a little freaky. It always grossed me out when other people would say they can feel their baby all the time, but I thought it would maybe change when It was me. I guess I will just be a little grossed out for the next few months!
