but it still tastes delicious.

9-30 yup, you've seen this before

9-30 yup, you've seen this before

while i’m sitting here enjoying a few moments off before i get back to work, i think the baby likes potato soup, too. apparently, unless i’m just really gassy and mistaking all of the little flutters in my belly as the baby wrongly, i have an active little one inside. i don’t know how i feel about that just yet—so many moms have told me that it’s so awesome to feel it move once it gets bigger, that it’s such a great reassurance to know that everything is going well. part of me is still a little freaked out by the idea of feeling a foot or a fist or a butt in my side or against my diaphragm or in my bladder or whatever. i still find that thought slightly disconcerting, especially when i project ahead to the third trimester when i know i’ll be able to actually see that offending foot through the stretched skin of my womb.

that … i am just not prepared for.

for now, however, i’m pretty confident the little faint flutters i can discern are definitely the baby and not just my intestines objecting to the progesterone that has since slowed down their digestive process. i know what gas feels like. i know what being constipated feels like. i’m rather sure that the movement i’ve felt since last week or so does not compare to those two things in the least. it’s definitely different, and that much really is exciting.

i think as time goes on, i’ll be more and more excited about the changes that are going on both with the baby and with my body. one week at a time!
