Tiny Bubbles

In the past week or so I think I've been feeling the baby move. I say "think" because it really just feels like gas bubbles and nothing definitive, the way you'd expect another human being moving around inside you would feel.

I've heard some women describe the sensation as "the flutter of butterfly wings." How poetic is that? It figures with all the belching and passing of gas that goes on at my house that my child's movement would feel like gas bubbles.

Is it too much to ask that this kid inherit my inability to burp on command? My husband has already handed down his, er, "gift" to three of his offspring. Let's spare this last one. Or at least spare his mother.
