Let’s see those spirit fingers

My new favorite game to play with Fetus is what I like to call “kick poke”. Which is basically just speak for shoving my child around in utero. The other day I stayed home sick, because um, I’m sick. And while laying in bed, Fetus decided it’d be a good time to jack me in the side with a foot or an arm, I have no idea. All I know is that it was all “knock knock knock”. So because I couldn’t sleep, I decide to poke Fetus back. To my surprise, I got another kick back. The whole kick poke thing went on for about ten minutes until at which point, I laughed because, it was quite amusing. It’s even more amusing and very weird to see my stomach move like an egg that’s about to hatch.

*kick poke*

I remember taking a bath used to freak me out, watching & feeling the “ripples” doing these contortions…

i don’t know why or how, but even though i am the number one worrier in the WORLD i never worried about josie’s health before she was born. the very few times i did, i had this one spot i would poke and she would always poke back. it was her little “i’m doing ok in here mom” thing and it was the BEST.

Has the baby had hiccups yet?It’s amusing unless of course you are trying to sleep.Both of my kids had hiccups in the womb atleast once a day the last 3 or 4 months.
My son’s were so violent people could watch my stomach jump from across the room.

I agree….a fun and rewarding game! It always makes me feel better if I am worried about scooter. Have fun!

Haha. That’s awesome. I’ll have to try that.

Aww. You have a smart Fetus! Also – Fetus knows how to get your attention now so that you will play with him/her for hours on end whether you like it or not. :)

I remember X’s butt getting up into my sternum (or so it felt like it) and I would push him out of the way and he’d shove back.

One time he kicked me so hard that my name badge that would lay right on top of him popped up.
