Secret Agent Josephine has a post about her first flutter and Brooklyn Girl has a post about feeling like something out of Aliens. And so I've been remembering feeling Muffin Man move around when I was pregnant with him and one particular moment that still gets me giggling.
I was working up until the last day and about a month before I was due, I was standing in a friend's cube, talking about a shower gift she was giving to another pregnant friend. I was standing about 2 feet away from my friend (the one on the right), she was sitting down and her face was about on a level with the top of my huge tummy. While we were talking MM decided to switch positions. On my left side a large bulge popped out of my tummy, slid over to just above my belly button and - whooosh! - disappeared. My friend nearly fell over. She slid her chair as far away from me as she could get.
She still shudders thinking about it.
