Babies like 007

11/19/08 - 20w7d

Rod and I went to Alamo Drafthouse today to watch the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. I guess the twins could hear the movie noise or felt the acoustical vibrations because the babies were really moving throughout the whole movie. Now in my 35 years, I have felt some weird things moving internally but nothing compares to two living beings dancing a jig in my stomach. I love that I can feel them, it's such an awesome sensation. At the same time, it's unnerving, bordering on creepy. But good creepy.

One minute, my stomach will be kinda squishy, the next minute, a baby will be pushing so hard against by belly that there is a hard lump. Seriously weird. Rod has felt the baby lump but has still not been able to feel any real movement or kicking.

I have been feeling the baby A on the right for almost a week and finally tonight I felt baby B on the left. I am so excited about that because it makes it more real. For the last two days, one of them has been putting pressure on my lungs because I have moments where I am short of breath. I gasp almost like I got the wind knocked out of me. I think it's great now but I'm wondering how long it will last when they get bigger and demand more belly real estate. I'll complain to get sympathy but inside, I'll be loving it.

It is the bestest feeling ever, borderline alien.

It's not a good feeling after you have been throwing up and your stomach muscles are all sore.
