Fetal hiccups are just so cute. At first, Marco and I thought baby boy had amazing rhythm and was destined to be a musical genius. But after about a second of internet research, it turns out he is getting hiccups. For me that made it really feel like a little person is hanging out in there.
I think I felt my first little “practice contraction”, aka Braxton Hicks. It felt like a tight cramp near the lower left side of my growing belly. It lasted only a few seconds. It might have just been growing pains. I’ll be asking the midwives about it next week.
I started walking with Marco and Hops in the afternoons to get a little more exercise. It’s been nice taking a family walk. Usually I take Hops out to the park in the morning before breakfast and Marco takes him out in the afternoon for a big neighborhood walk up and down the hills.
In the evenings I’ve been relaxing and watching The Sopranos again. But I’ve felt guilty about baby hearing all the angry yelling so I started wearing headphones.
