Playing Footsie – 33 Weeks

This week I have discovered that I can feel his feet in my belly. He will stick them out and rather than it feeling like a general, non-descript large blob of baby, there is some definition enough to tell that it is, in fact, a foot! Too long to be a hand, but short enough, it has got to be a foot! I was sitting at my desk working on a project earlier this week when I felt it the first time. He has gotten more and more active lately, and as usual, he was moving around a lot. I put my hand down on my belly to calm him down a bit, and there it was! That distinct bump that is all foot! I could wiggle it and everything! It was pretty exciting.

I have learned to sleep on my side over the last several months. Now that he is so big, when I lay on my side, the bulk of his little body will slide with gravity down towards the bed on whichever side I am sleeping on. I can feel that once I/we get into this sleep position, he starts wiggling his little hands and feet on the other side of my belly. Well last night, he was sticking a foot out! I was so excited because Chris was there, and I wanted him to feel this new foot development. Well the coolest thing happened! The baby started playing with us/me! He would stick his foot out, and I would wiggle his little foot until he would put it down. A moment or two later, he would jab it back out again! I would wiggle it again until he put it down. Again, he would stick it back out in one quick movement. We kept going like that for about 10 minutes or so until I think I wore him out. He would fake me out sometimes sticking his foot out by my belly button, or up high, or down low, etc. His movements were so funny. I definitely think he enjoyed it as much as I did. It was so great to interact and play with him! It was crazy to see my stomach jut out like that. Chris and I were both laughing at how funny he was being! Can’t wait to meet this little guy!!
