When I was trying to figure out if I was actually feeling you or if it was some other intestinal based movement, ahem, I looked up "What do fetus movements feel like?" I got many descriptions on-the-line like, "It feels like bubbles!" and "It feels like gas but only if gas was made of butterflies!" I guess bubbles would be the closest sensation to feeling another being wiggling inside of you, but I think I've come up with a better one. So if you took a bag of kittens in water, that could breathe water, bare with me here, and then put a thick blanket over them, that's what it feels like from the outside. I just don't know why anybody said that before. Simple. And on the inside, it feels like when you've just exercised for a while and your muscles are kinda twitchy, like your thighs, especially if it's a little cold outside.
We had an ultrasound and found all your parts seem to point to male genitalia. You are big too. You're measuring ahead of the curve in everything, especially your femur, which is measuring a full week ahead of everything else. This is a tall family, bro, you better keep up. But, I think seeing you kick and wiggle while I felt you inside me at the same time, was the most awesome. I keep having flashbacks to the ultrasound, to seeing your little head and little body. I can see why people get addicted to ultrasounds, it was so exciting to SEE you! I am imagining your face and your little hands. Will you look like me or him? Will you have blonde hair? Ringlets?
It's been fun being able to call you "he" because it brings us a little closer to knowing you. Your father was so excited to see that he was right and that you're a boy. He was so sure and so convinced that he had all his family saying he and him. I feel like I knew too. I was looking at my tea set and knew that I'd have to have another, to get the girl who'd like my tea set. Who knows though, I shouldn't put you in a box, without my tea set.
Love to the moon,
