Remy’s not entirely predictable, but I’m beginning to get a sense of his sleep/wake cycles. Some days I feel more motion than others, but here’s what I do know:
1. When I’m walking or running, he sleeps. I know this for sure because on a couple of occasions, going down hills especially, I can feel a really super relaxed fetus limb brushing against the inside of my uterus. Veeeery relaxed. It tickles too.
2. I don’t have to be awake for Remy to be awake. Yesterday morning I groggily rose from bed as someone did a kickboxing class in my abdomen. That is a strange feeling. I imagine it will be an even more surprising sensation when he gets bigger.
3. He’s most active just after meals and snacks. Yeeee-haa! Food! Let’s get a move on! It doesn’t matter what kind of food, or even need to be remotely sweet. Tonight’s dinner was heavily protein and veggies with very little carbohydrate, but he’s been going all evening.
I’m really beginning to feel big. The weather cooled off and tonight we had a Durham Bulls baseball game to go to. I put on my trench coat that I got for Christmas. I couldn’t close it, so I wore one of Gary’s coats. It was really nice to have something fit me too loose for a change.
