Antagonizing the Fetus

At just shy of 25 weeks pregnant, I am currently enjoying feeling our little guy move around quite a bit. Of course, as soon as I tell Mason to feel my (ever growing) abdomen so he can partake, our mini-Mason seems to quiet down. The past few evenings I have been taking great pleasure in talking to mini-Mason, singing him silly songs and such in an effort to encourage him to move around. If that doesn’t work, I resort to what Mason has deemed “Antagonizing the Fetus!” Don’t worry, I’m not doing anything too strange. I just jump up and down a little or poke at my abdomen hoping for a reaction. Several weeks ago, when I was first starting to feel movement I even tried to eat Peeps before bed, hoping that the sugar buzz would get him going. Unfortunately for me, the only thing it did was give me nightmares. I won’t be trying that again anytime soon.

By the way, pregnant dreams are very strange things…….
