Are those little flutters in my belly?

Since I was first pregnant I couldn't wait to feel those little flutters in my belly. I thought it would be the most amazing and sweetest thing. About two weeks ago, after eating a huge chocolate thunder dessert from outback, I felt a tiny flutter. It lasted about 1 second and then it was gone. Everyday I waited for that little flutter to come back, but to no avail. I started worrying that there was something wrong with the baby and that I needed to call the Dr. ASAP. It's funny though because as soon as I started panicking, I felt a few hard kicks. It was like the baby was trying to reassure me that everything was okay. It's amazing how, although we have never met, I can love something so much. I can't imagine when I actually meet Baby Senkarik, the love I will feel.

So the kicks are coming more and more. The only time I seem to feel them is when I am lying down on my back. They are getting stronger so I am guessing that I will start feeling them all the time soon. We have our 20 week appointment on Monday and we get to see the ultrasound. We haven't had one since 12 weeks, so it should be a huge difference. I am enjoying every moment of being pregnant. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I have been. I thought the impatient side of me would want it to be over, but I always feel like someone is with me, that I am never alone. I guess that is what my life will feel like from here on out. It's a miracle!

Here are some pictures of my growing belly and it keeps getting bigger and bigger!!
