Quicken - It's not just for accounting anymore

Main Entry:

Intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): quick·ened; quick·en·ing

2: to reach the stage of gestation at which fetal motion is felt

So...Su is now feeling the baby moving, and we heard its heartbeat racing along at 140 bpm on Friday. I guess this means that the baby is quickening. (definition #2)

Wow! Everything is just quickening! (definition #3) Is that MY heart I feel quickening? (definition #5)

Go Crumpet, go Crumpet! - Love, Mommy

P.S. Baby love. There's just no accounting for it!

Yay! I miss feeling those first few kicks. Not so much the middle of the night ones at the very end but the beginning ones were so cool. Glad things are going well on your end!
