According to Babycenter.com, Baby Jesse (see, I'm using his name already) should be about 18 inches now. He should also be about 2.5 - 3 kgs now. As you can imagine, it's a tight fit in the womb right now.
So whenever the little guy moves, you can actually see the impression of a stray elbow or knee. And it's supposedly quite visible. Think Aliens. :)
Mae's been telling me about it but I haven't seen it for myself. "Oh, he just moved his arm," she'd tell me. "Where? Where?" I'd scramble for a closer look but everytime that I did he's stay very still, the little rascal! I even set up the camera to snap it should it happen again, but so far, no such luck. Trying to capture Baby's movements on camera is proving quite difficult. He's almost as elusive as the Loch Ness Monster!
After a week of trying, I'm so desperate that I'd even settle for a feel of his movements. So, I place my hand over Mae's belly and talk to the little guy. Oh, he'll give me a condescending little nudge or maybe a complimentary roll every now and then but no real big moves. But no big moves.
Then last night at about 2am, while I was drifting in and out of sleep, Mae suddenly woke me. "Honey, he's moving!" I jump out of bed.
She puts my hand on the exact spot just beneath her ribs and there it was. I could feel his little hand. Maaaaaan!!!! His tiny little hand was in my own hand. I cannot explain what a rush that was, but man, was it ever a rush! Fuuh....
Then again, that might have been his foot. Oh well...
