Breathing... (xp)

So the other night I was sitting on the couch with DH watching TV, and I started feeling the weirdest movements from Trystan. As in so strange, not only have I never felt them with him, I never felt them with any of my other babies. I looked down at my stomach, and it was rythmically (sp?) moving up and down... not like when they get the hiccups because it wasn't a tapping as that feels, but he was breathing (or practicing breathing!)!!! I couldn't believe it! I grabbed DH's hand and had him feel as well, and even he was fascinated (which trust me, never happens with baby's movements, as this is his fifth child lol). He did this for about fifteen minutes, just kept up with the breathing movements... it was incredible. How they do these things in liquid blows my mind! Anyone else experience this?

I saw Carter doing that in my ultrasound last week after the tech pointed it out. I didn't feel anything from it but it was fascinating to watch him 'breathe'!

I'm telling you, it was the most amazing thing to watch my stomach moving up and down over and over, and to know that that's what he was doing! I've never seen it on an U/S before, but to see it through my stomach moving was incredible!

Very cool! Sounds like your baby is already above average - he'll be ready to thrive in the big world in no time!

I have been feeling that occasionally for a couple of weeks here and there. It is AMAZING!!! At first I was like "what is that???" then I realized, and had dh feel it. He thought it was pretty cool. And I have felt it a few times since. I think they just need to be positioned correctly for us to feel it.
Amazing babies, eh?
