baby hiccups!

i was sitting on the couch this afternoon feeling tired and sorry for myself. landon has been working non-stop because the new impact center is opening tonight. very exciting, but i sorta (well, more than sorta) want my husband back. this morning he said he promised to make it up to me this week. that sounds exciting. i'm looking forward to it.

anyway... i'm sitting on the couch, and this little kicking feeling starts below my belly button on the left side. landon was looking at his accelerate lesson, and i said, 'she's kicking me low right now. usually she kicks much higher.' but it didn't feel the same because it was much lighter, and, like i said, in a weird location for her. well it just kept up. real rhythmic. landon walked to the bathroom, and i said, 'she's doing something over and over. it's weird.' he comes back, and i tell him to feel. he puts his hand on my belly and feels the movement three times, and i said, 'see?' he said, 'hiccups' like it was so obvious. i said, 'oh! hiccups! i've never felt those before! of course that's what it is.' and we kissed, and i cried. landon didn't know why i was crying, but i was. i cry about everything. it's just the way it is.

then i googled 'fetal hiccups,' and the first hit i read said that healthy babies hiccup. sick babies usually don't. i cried again.

it also said a lot of times, once you can feel their hiccups, they'll hiccup at the same time every day.

you can bet i'll be checking at 3:30 tomorrow!

oh, i can't wait 'till she's here.

have i said that before?

yeah. well, it's true.
