My stomach is moving.

Yesterday at school, my class joined Bill Nelson's class for a presentation. Bill and I didn't have much to do, so we were sitting in the back catching up. I was kind of slouched back and noticed that Skippy was really moving around and kicking. I looked down and... oh wow, oh gross... my stomach was actually moving. Like, thumping, and... moving. Bill even saw it and thought it was amazing. Of course, Doug hasn't seen it, but luckily he thinks it's funny that Bill Nelson experienced it.

When Doug puts his hand on my belly to feel Skippy, all movement ceases until he moves his hand. We think maybe his hand is so warm, or so scary, that Skippy just relaxes - or freezes - until that weirdness passes. My "consultants" at school tell me it doesn't matter, eventually he won't help but feel and notice it. But for the meantime, I've decided it's kind of cool, as long as I don't think about it too long.

When Perrin would do his cartwheels my belly would move in all sorts of funky ways. It was cool, but you're right, as long as you don't think about it too much. :-)

Perrin acted the same way when Paul would touch my stomach. We thought it was a change in the pressure. He never did (not once) feel him in me. Saw him moving all the time but never was able to feel it.

funny! Also, this is one of those milestones I've been *waiting* to see/experience. Still a few weeks to wait here through. Glad the cat is out of the bag with some of your students. Have a good Thanksgiving!
