Things that are NOT the Baby Moving

I so want to feel the baby move. I wouldn't say I am obsessed with it, but I sorta think about it all the time and am officially turning anything that comes in contact with my my abdomen as a possible baby movement. That's not obsessed, right? Anyway, here is a list of things that it turns out are NOT the baby moving...just for you other moms-to-be out there so you don't get confused...
  • While sitting at work I felt a very tiny thump. I got so excited! This was IT! BABY MOVING!! I stayed perfectly still and THERE IT WAS AGAIN! ...and again...and again...very regular. Thump, thump, thump, thump...damn. It's my pulse.
  • I read that it sorta feels like little bubbles popping. I am watching TV and feel something along those lines. YES. THERE IT IS! BAAAAABY! I sit perfectly still to feel it again and...GRRRROOOOOWWWWWLLLLLL....stomach lets out and unnatural growl. damn. I am just hungry.
  • I wake up from a deep sleep in the middle of the night POSITIVE the baby just moved and woke me up! It is a super strong baby and the first move was POWERFUL!! I look down to see my cat laying against my stomach stretching. damn. He seems annoyed as I push him to the ground...

So that's it I think. My educational list of things that are NOT the baby. Apparently you feel the baby between 16-20 weeks, so this might be a LONG wait!


  1. I find this hilarious. I'm 15 weeks and already doing the same thing!

  3. Oh! So funny! I did the same thing when I was pregnant. I started feeling the baby move 'for real' around the same time I found out the gender (18-20 weeks). Early on, it felt like there was a goldfish swimming in my tummy - water and all. I hope you feel some movement soon. It's really neat!
