I'm glad you guys liked the video. I thought it was cute. I'll probably take the link down at the end of the day (and if anyone else wants to see it they can PM me).
Piglet, I think the baby moving is really cool too. It would be neat to compare the videos of Emily and Sasha. I'm also amazed at how strong the kicks can be... like if I'm leaning into my desk they are almost strong enough to roll my chair out a bit.
Mandi, I hope you make a movie too! I'd love to see it if you can share!
wannabmommie, it's so funny how so many times I go to show someone the movements and they stop instantly. Smart little babies! As for comparing our tummies, It's really interesting how differently people carry (high, low, round, oval, in, out)... even just changing position makes a surprising difference. Lying on my back I look way less pregnant than standing up.
Actually, now that I'm showing, the variety of things people say about my pregnancy and my tummy is actually pretty amusing. Within one lunch break I've gotten both "Oh, six months, you're so tiny!" and "Wow, you're showing a lot for six months!" They almost always claim to be experts too (especially the men). Like "I have 16 nieces and nephews and I've seen lots of pregnant women." or "Pregnant women don't show until 5 and a half months." I always just kind of smile (although I think sometimes I can't hide my smirk) and try not to roll my eyes.
Why is natural, healthy variation such a difficult concept??? Why do people come up with these ideas of a pregnancy mold that everyone should fit? They can't even agree with eachother! Oh my.
