Active Baby Lulu

Note: Lulu will not be my child’s name. This is an in-utero nickname. It may or may not have something to do with what her name will be. I’m not telling. But she does have a name picked out. Again, I’m not telling- mostly because I don’t want to hear about so-and-so’s cousin’s boyfriend’s sister who had that name and was skanky or bossy or mean or crazy or whatever. So to prevent any kind of unwanted commentation – no one knows what her name is going to be. Except me. And my husband. All ya’ll will just have to wait until she’s born. Just 15-16 more weeks (unless she comes early… HA, not likely).

Little Miss Lulu is quite active. At 22 weeks I was ‘seeing’ her move. And the movement has just gotten stronger and stronger and more regular. Nighttime is her favorite to move. She’s kicked Viddy. She kicks me. She kicked my chiropractor. She kicked my nurse midwife and the doppler. She kicks me. She kicks my appendix or there-abouts. She kicks my bladder. She kicks my hipbones.

My nurse midwife told me that I should get a book on active children (…OKAY…). I’m hoping her in-utero activity level turns into out-of-utero curiosity and constructive activity. Here’s to hoping.

    Mikaela was super busy too in utero and she is WONDERFUL now! She used to kick Josh in the back all night when we would cuddle. We both loved it, although it did make sleep a little more difficult… I hope that your sweet girl is wonderful, busy and curious just like mine is!
