It’s not very nice to dance inside Mama’s Tummy!

I was envious of those who started to feel kicking earlier than I, and now I wish I could take it back. Little Sofia is busting a move in there because not only is she kicking but she is grooving. I blame it on too much “Dancing with the Stars” and “American Idol” with all these reality shows we are turning her into a little DIVA!

I started feeling kicks at about week 20/21 and was so overjoyed. So sweet, so soft just wee little flutters and jolts. However now, the kicks have turned into squirms and summer-saults that really feel like something that should be out of a horror film. Anyone else get this? I assume its because she is making herself cozy in there, re-positioning so that she can get the most comfy real estate I have to offer in there. 

The first time I felt this was about a week ago and I was making my plate for dinner. My husband had just sat down himself at the table and Sofia started to dance in which almost felt like some sorta Jello-Like Pool inside my tummy. It was all done in slow motion {you know just to creep me out over a longer stretch of time}, I looked at my husband with what was almost like a silent terror look and I froze. 

Me: “Sam, this is beyond creepy, she is moving and I just don’t like it – Oh Gawd, she is doing a re-position or something, its weird – it feels not good – this is not fun!” 

and to what was my husbands response:

Sammy: “DAMN-IT….I WISH I WAS PREGNANT – I WANNA FEEL THIS CREEPY-NESS” as he stomps his fist on the couch with a grin larger than life!

I have to say, I’m getting used to the dancing, I wouldn’t say I love it just yet – as it still seems to take me back a little every time she re-locates. But I’m getting close to not stopping in my tracts when it happens. Any other first-time Mama’s out there feel this way when your wee one decided to change their comfy quarter to someplace new?

  4. awww!! I actually miss that! It is weird though! I used to rub my son’s little butt. Sometimes when I woke up in the middle of the night to go potty(which happened a lot!), I could tell that his little butt was up under my left rib cage. I remember when I was getting my blood glucose tests when he was still small enough to have room to move around and my sweater would be moving. You could just see it “rolling”. I’m so sad I’m never gonna go through that again!!! Enjoy it! 🙂
