Wild Thang

My child is wild. And strong. Not to mention a fan of late night fist pump partying. Need some examples?

Exhibit A:
Connor has figured out how to jam his feet up into my lungs. He's getting quite good at wedging them in there as hard as he can. It doesn’t really hurt yet since he’s still a little guy but it totally causes my breathing to be labored, even when I'm just sitting at my desk or laying in bed.

Exhibit B:
My stomach JUMPS now. You can see him moving. It’s quite amusing and sometimes we just watch him bounce all over the place. It reminds me of a rolly polly sometimes. It's like the wave is happening in my belly. He gets really jumpy between the hours of 8 p.m. -10 p.m. He is already fighting bed time!

Exhibit C:
And last night, I was sound asleep and awoke to a sharp pain in my left side. I thought James must have moved and whacked me but James isn't home this week. That leaves only one little guy to blame. How on earth does such a little person have so much power?

I started feeling him around week 21 and there has been a HUGE increase in movement over the past 2-3 weeks. I’ve felt a increase in the strength of his movement recently too. I now have the joy of getting the wind knocked out of me from time to time. Thanks Buddy!

Our little mister is wild and I am so happy we didn't wait to be a little older to have our first baby. I can't imagine being in my 40's chasing around a toddler!

  1. Don't worry, when he gets a little bigger in there, he won't be able to move quite as much - it'll give you a little break before he actually gets here.

    I loved watching Henry move in my belly - I'd lay in bed at night and just watch him kick and punch and do whatever it was he was doing in there.

    1. I love my nights with Connor. For some reason, he stops moving as soon as James lays his hand on my belly. He already knows he needs to keep his Momma as his favorite!

  2. I remember Hunter moved around a lot, especially at night. That's common b/c during the day they are lulled to sleep with all of your movement and walking around, hence why they are born having their days and nights mixed up. Feeling the movement is the one thing I really miss about being pregnant.

    1. You know I don't want another baby but I can honestly say sharing this time with Connor will be greatly missed. I love being the only one who knows him so intimately.

  3. Henry used to put his feet under my ribs. I had to have an ultrasound at 39 weeks and they couldn't see one of his feet because it was SO far up under my ribs. OUCH!

    1. I Connor has been head down for a while now and I can honestly say I have felt my fair share of kicks. When we went to the 3D/4D ultrasound, all we could see is one foot. I think they are going to be big, like his Daddy! YEAH for me! ;)
