I feel like most newborns I meet are pretty sedate: sleep, cry, eat, poop, repeat. But do they kick and wiggle and punch a lot, and I have just never noticed? Unless Pavo totally changes in the next ten weeks, our baby may constantly be on the move, even from his/her first moments breathing oxygen.
What can I say? My baby likes to party.
One can see my belly moving (independent of me!) from a distance. Today one associate noticed this during a presentation on microbial oceanography. She observed that perhaps my baby is a budding microbial scientist. But baby kicked during presentations on undersea oil plumes, marine spatial planning … It’s not just science. Baby likes to kick it during America’s Got Talent too.
Basically, when I sit still for a moment, Pavo starts moving. A lot.
What with all these water aerobics, will our baby be born with muscle tone?
