Tiny Stirrings


I was going to write an account of our trip to the ruins of Golkonda Fort that we visited on Saturday—and I will. However, sometimes the simpler things that aren’t so insistently clamouring for attention get overlooked—simple things involving the miracle of life, the miracle of carrying life.
contemplatingWhen I was pregnant with Aria, I remember awaiting that first awareness of her in the physical sense of consciousness. I had no idea what a baby moving inside of me might feel like, but I was excited at the prospect. One day, when I was about eighteen weeks pregnant, I was lying on my back reading a book. Suddenly, I became aware of the fact that I was feeling something new—a completely miraculous sensation. Tiny, tingly bubbles felt like they were popping from the inside of my belly—Aria’s little kicks and punches. I never tired of feeling her move about and she was a relatively considerate baby, rarely giving me any rib jabs. It was amazing to feel her arm or leg glide beneath the surface of my belly as she did some dance moves or tried to stretch out; after she was born, this is what I missed most from my pregnancy.

As I lay in bed Saturday night, I suddenly became aware of those sensations again—different, but yet very familiar. My wee one was making its presence known. This baby moved a little differently than Aria had with movements that felt more like butterfly wings slowly moving back and forth as you see them do while perched on a flower. The tingly sensation was the same though. This wasn’t just my stomach moving around doing its own thing—this was new life; a being communicating with me in the only way it presently can. It’s at this moment I truly feel the wondrous reality coming to me and I can’t help but glow.

    Congratulations! Those first little stirrings are so exciting- you’ve felt you’re body changing for months, but to actually feel that new little life is indescribable!
    I hope all are feeling better.

    We’re all back to our good ole healthy selves, praise God. Aria’s teething though, but that’s a pretty normal pheneomenon in the life of a baby!:-)

    Hi Rachel! I have been wondering how your pregnancy was going, thanks for sharing it with us. Feeling baby move is one of my favorite things about pregnancy too. There is nothing like it!

    I remember when you first felt Cameryn– that night when you went home after you were with me when Aria was born. That was so special!
