Seeing Baby Movement From The Outside

I finally caught him on tape!

I've been seeing our little boy's movements from the outside for a couple months, but I haven't had the best luck getting him on video.

However, while sitting on the couch the other morning, looking up meanings for little boy's names, and eating some lovely Peppermint Bark (one of my favorite Christmas treats), the little guy decided he was ready to give me some footage.

He kicks me all the time. And he kicks me hard. I sometimes wonder when I'm sitting in a restaurant, or standing in line at the grocery store, if people see him hopping around in my stomach. If they were looking at my stomach, I am pretty certain they couldn't miss his little punches and bulges. They're pretty obvious.

Anyway, without further ado, here's my little man on video, for the first time! He moves a couple times at the beginning, then the middle is rather slow - but if you can hang in there until the end, that's when he gave me a few really good kicks! Pay attention to the right half of my belly especially.

Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Or maybe it's just because I'm his mother - but I think it's pretty heart-melting.

I bet he'll be even cuter when he squirms around after he's born.

Oh my ... that is just precious! When I was getting a prenatal massage during my 3rd trimester, the masseuse giggled whenever she saw my belly move. It was the funniest thing. I certainly miss feeling Miss Thing practice ballet inside of me! ;)

Cute!!! So funny to see that and feel it inside at the same time, isn't it? I've seen our little one move from the outside a few times now too because he/she kicks hard as well! I guess that's good though because it means the baby is strong!

So cool!! I don't know that I have ever seen kicks happening on the outside of a belly before. I hope to experience that someday. What a joyful morning to have caught on tape!

Oh how cute! I haven't ever gotten any movement on video! I can see my little one moving around in there now, so maybe I'll try to capture it!

that was nuts!!! i had jax sitting with me while watching it, and he was quite intrigued why your bely was "wiggling." i told him you have a baby boy in your belly and that it was the baby moving around. his eyes almost fell out of his head! (didn't show the mister - he's weirded out by pregnant bellies, even my little bump)

Jessica said...

Aww, how cool!

Well that is just adorable! I don't think I've ever gotten to see a baby kick from the outside, only felt with my hand on someone's tummy - that's SO cool! God gives mommies such cool little blessings like that :)
