Baby Kicks

A couple weeks ago, I had Rob put his hand on my stomach to see if he could feel ________ <----(insert name) but he couldn't feel anything.

Two nights ago, the baby was being pretty active so I went over to Rob on the couch and asked him to put his hand on my stomach, I also placed his arm so it was draping over the rest of my stomach since he seems to kick on the sides rather than right in the middle. I felt a kick and said "Did you feel that?" and he said "Yeah, but on my arm" and I said "That's him!". He said "Hi _____" then, about 3 seconds later, he kicked again. I think Rob said something like "Whoa!" and was done with that little exercise.

I think Rob liked it, but it is a little trippy I must say!

I would like to point out how difficult it already is to not share his name since you have to include ____ whenever its appropriate :-)

Anyway, that's exciting that you are both feeling ___ kick!

There will come a day that Rob won't need to "feel" the baby kick - he can track that baby's foot/leg/arm/whatever as it pushes outward and makes its way across your belly. Now THAT'S trippy :)
