@Grivusangel -- That's as good a description as I've ever seen. I can agree with your mom that feeling your baby move is just wonderful. It's the absolute confirmation you have new life inside you.
I mean, you can see it on the ultrasound and so forth, and you have all the morning sickness, weird smells, etc., but somehow, *feeling* the baby move makes it all very real. For me, seeing my daughter on the ultrasound and hearing her heartbeat was really amazing, but it was when I felt her move that it truly became a concrete reality for me: I was going to be a mother! Incredible feeling.
