Alien attempts escape!!

Guys, this is what I mean. He/she is seriously trying to get out!

You can scroll through, I added titles before and after the most move-y parts so you don't have to sit and stare at my striped belly for the whole video length.

15 minutes later I rolled onto my right side and he/she started with the dancing again.

This sort of thing is constant - if I am still for a bit or eat, the belly-twitching begins. I silently hope that whoever I am talking to at work at that time doesn't notice.

Every night I am hollering "Come check this out!" at The Hottest Computer Scientist in the Universe but of course it's only a few seconds or maybe a couple of minutes at a time. By the time he comes over, or finishes his paragraph and looks up, the Guajolote is still again. A friend with a blog said she posted video, and it finally dawned on me to do the same thing. THCSITU can see it, and might's well share here too.


  1. Oh my!!! Yours is a really active one huh?! I enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing!!!

  2. This is crazy! And... I know this might sound weird now, but you might miss it once s/he's out - I know that I do. I mean, it's great to actually get to interact with the kid and all, but I'm strangely nostalgic for the times when he was kicking me.

  3. sara I just read Luka's birth story on your blog. Amazing! Fantastic! So glad you escaped that near miss with the hospital in the beginning.

    I think I will feel strangely alone when the only parts of my body that are moving are the parts that I move. These involuntary (on my part) motions are so constant and so much a part of me, it seems hard to imagine them not being there.
