Pregnancy: No one told me it feels like being on a roller-coaster
Posted by Lissa on July 2, 2012
And I mean that LITERALLY, not figuratively!!
BabyKitty started moving several weeks ago. He was kicking hard enough that Mike could feel it on Father’s Day (good baby!). It’s wonderful and I love it . . . there’s a certain feeling of unreality about pregnancy — that there’s an actual live human being growing inside me — and every kick, every flutter, every shift of movement makes it more real.
And that was before he started turning somersaults. Or maybe practicing hip-throws or back handsprings.
When he kicks really strongly, or when he does a big motion shift, it LITERALLY feels like being on a roller-coaster. You know how your stomach DROPS as you go over a big fall? That’s what it feels like! My whole internal system LURCHES and then settles.
Good thing I love roller-coasters, no?
All in all, I am having a very normal, boring pregnancy.
Which is exactly what I wanted.
