Um . . . are you moving in there??
Posted by Lissa on June 7, 2012
Two baby-related posts in a row, which I’m trying to mostly avoid, but I don’t want to forget this, so here it is for posterity:
1) I think I’m starting to feel BabyKitty move
2) It feels WEIRD. VERY WEIRD.
I have a fairly gurgle-y abdomen, so it’s very possible he’s been moving for a long time and I just haven’t classified it. But now I’m starting to feel occasional — twinges. Like something poking me from the inside. Sometimes I think it’s a stomach rumble, and then sometimes I think it’s a foot or an elbow. (Hey, kid — if you’re going to be a soccer player, you need to avoid high-foot’s and thrown elbows!)
I’m usually busy enough during the day that it doesn’t cross my mind. It’s only when I lie in bed reading before sleep … or when Rajah wakes us up yowling at three AM, which is SO. UNNECESSARY. YOU. NAUGHTY. CAT. … that I try to classify the twinges and gurgles coming from the belly.
Oh, and it is now officially a belly. I’ve gained about ten pounds and my tummy is starting to try to pull my spine forward. I’m trying to be very good about posture and keeping my spine straight, but you kind of have to engage your abdominal muscles to do that and they’re all stretched out of whack.
Halfway there, halfway to go. Is it October yet???
