Punched from the inside

As I was studying the other night, sitting still on the floor, I suddenly felt a tiny punch from the inside. I have experienced some strange feelings over the past week and a half that I thought maybe could have been the quickening or the baby’s first noticeable movements. I’m not totally sure that those times were the baby rather than my gurgling intestines. But this time, I wasn’t thinking about it, and my intestines were surprisingly still. So, I’m pretty sure that was it. All the books say that quickening usually occurs somewhere between week 18-22. I guess I’m right on target.
