Woah! (Factory Moments)

Woah. So that's what a Braxton-Hicks contraction feels like! As advertised, it isn't painful, and it doesn't last long, but what a weird sensation. I thought it was just Guppy putting a foot against a nerve at first, but it was sort of... broad numbness? and when I poked my stomach, it was like I was in the middle of doing a crunch, all bunched up hard.

Later:

Guppy was giving a particularly vigorous squirm, and I'm looking at my stomach in awe. "I think there was like an inch of elevation difference, just then," I said to Jake.

Jake made a scoffing noise, then she did it again. "Woah!" O.O (<- with a face just like that.)

Me: "I told you!"

Jake (feigning nonchalance): "I didn't see anything..."



Not exactly feeling ready for things right now... about to start researching carseats, since that's a fairly important thing to have at the beginning.
