Loch Ness

Bubble was quite late in the noticeable movement department. But now that he’s rolling around like a bowling ball in there I feel the need to make a record of one move in particular.

Sometimes if your hand is on bubblesbump you’ll feel what is most accurately described as a sea monster swimming past. It’s not a kick or a punch. More like what you imagine Luke felt on his leg in the trash compactor. It’s weird. It’s neat. It’s vaguely disturbing and I can’t get enough of it.

I call it Nessing – like the Loch Ness monster is on the move. There’s nothing. Nothing. Then suddenly he Nesses. Then…nothing.

I have a feeling the Nessing is a sign that he’ still transverse. Doc should be able to tell more on Friday at 33 week appointment. I am so excited that there are only 7 weeks (give or take) till the Bubble comes into the world.

But am already acutely aware that after that day I’ll never feel Nessing again. And at the same time so so so grateful I’ve been given the opportunity to be Nessed at all.

    What a sweet post. And I love the Star.Wars reference!

  2. My little Junior does the SAME thing. I know exactly what you’re talking about. My little Junior has been head down since at least 30 weeks and i can feel it up by my ribs so the only thing I can attribute it to is his leg. It feels like he’s moviing his knee back and forth along my upper belly. I love that feeling, it’s the greatest!

  3. love the description of nessing, how magical!

    thinking of you as you enter the home stretch.
