I have to say, while there are many things about pregnancy that I don't enjoy, one thing I do love is feeling the baby kick and wiggle. It's a fun confirmation that someone is in there and that things are going okay with him. And it's always amazing how each baby shows a bit of personality already just by the wiggling.
For instance, this baby loves to squirm and wiggle in the evenings. From about 7 p.m. to around midnight he is really active and wiggling all over the place. And this baby will kick and kick when he feels the rumble from a purring cat laying on my lap. I'm not sure if he's just reacting to the vibration, or actively trying to get the cat to move away. Last night I watched him kick directly beneath the cat's head over and over. The cat's head was literally moving up and down with each kick, but she didn't seem to notice/care. She was stubborn enough to outlast the kicking at any rate.
It reminded me of a funny story from my first pregnancy. When I was pregnant with Haley, every time the organ would start playing at church she would go wild. All kinds of kicking and squirming around. It would continue until the song ended, and then she would be quiet again until the next time the organ started up. We would laugh and think it was so funny. "She really likes the music!" we would say. "Look how much she's reacting to it!"
Then she was born and we took her to church with us. And every time the organ music began she would scream and scream. Then when the song ended she would be calm again until the next song began. Ooops. Apparently she didn't like the organ music after all.
So it will be interesting to see, after this baby is born - does he like the purring cat or doesn't he?
