Wiggle Worm

At my prenatal appointment this morning, my doctor placed the fetal doppler wand on my stomach and was able to hear the soothing sound of my baby's heart beat right away.....and then it disappeared.

She moved the wand over to the right and picked it up again. We listened to it for about 30 seconds and she said "you got a wiggle worm in there. Do you hear it moving around?"

Hear it moving around? No. I heard the heartbeat (always a HUGE relief) but moving around? Like swimming in there? What does that sound like? I need to be given the hearing of a doctor.

I find it so utterly strange that there is a avocado sized being swimming around in my uterus but I can't feel it yet.

As we walked out of the exam room, she said "Everything is looking very good. You are having a healthy pregnancy."

This is all so surreal. I'm not faking it. I'm not in a dream. I'm actually pregnant. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
