Gut to Bump, Round 2 – the Explosion

I didn’t even button my pants this afternoon.

These are the same pants that I wore just out of the wash on Saturday without any noticeable discomfort.

The Belly Band is a beautiful thing. But my “grow-with-me” wardrobe strategy isn’t going to cut it anymore. I’m not sure it is professionally appropriate to spend the work day with your pants undone.

The Swoosh – hearing Baby move

One of the highlights at Monday’s appointment was getting to hear Baby Dub’s heartbeat and occasionally, “the Swoosh” – the sound of Baby Dub moving.

It turns out that our baby is a total athlete. Every time we’d get a solid beat on that little ticker of his or hers, SWOOSH… Baby would move out of the way. Our little onion was bouncing from one side of my tummy to the other, never letting us get more than 5 seconds of that 150 heart rate.

We’re not trying to trace a call here, Baby Dub. You can hold still.
