I'm 18weeks today, and have felt flutters for a few weeks now. They've become more frequent but its so light that if i'm not really paying attention I don't notice them. On sunday I was with my mom and I thought I felt a kick from the outside but it was the only one and gone before I could get my mom to feel too. I can't wait to feel full on kicks, SEE them, and have them be strong enough for DH to feel too.View Thread
DH and my BFF who will be serving as my doula. I have a feeling DH won't be able to handle it haha
Afterwards I've already limited the number of people who are coming in to see the baby to parents and grandparents - not even step-parents, brothers/sisters - and even the ones allowed are only allowed in one at a time! There will be plenty of time for that later.View Thread
