A New Development

Supposedly you can start feeling the baby move somewhere between the 16th and 20th weeks of pregnancy. It has been described as a fluttering, which is also known, in more scientific terms, as "quickening".

Although I have yet to experience this much anticipated event, I have recently noticed an odd sensation that indicates that something might in fact be in there. It's not movement, per se, but rather, what feels like an ever-present gas bubble lodged in my abdomen that especially makes its presence known when I lay on my side, bend over, or sit down.

Maybe I'm not having an alien after all - it might just be a gas baby. Hopefully made of helium. Then it will be easy to carry.

I'll keep you updated as this story develops further.
