I woke this morning to a small rhythmic thumping on the left side of my ginormous belly.
It was too hard to be a heartbeat. It was too steady and regular to be another bout of kicking.
Yep, baby just had his first hiccups! And it was WEIRD.
I wasn’t kidding about my ginormous belly, by the way:
I’ve gained about twenty pounds and I still have ten weeks to go. Happily, the weight is pretty much confined to the baby bump; the rest of me looks about the same. Getting things off the floor is more difficult than I ever imagined, but the kicks and somersaults are marvelously enjoyable. it’s also pretty funny seeing my dress or nightgown twitch as he whacks me or flips around. He may be thirty weeks old but his head is already quite hard, it seems.
Baby says hello to all of you!!
