I've wondered over these last days and weeks why I've never felt our baby hiccup. Everyone is always telling me about being annoyed by the baby having hiccups. Why doesn't my baby get hiccups? But, during our birthing class on Thursday night, one of the labour nurses said something about hiccups, and Andrew looked at me pointedly... And it finally clicked that the movements I was feeling (it was almost like I could feel a pulse, but it was way too slow, but too rhythmic to be kicks or squirms) were hiccups! Eureka! And since then, I've felt it several times and it's like, "duh!" I can't believe I never put that together. Needless to say, our baby does in fact, get the hiccups. (Just in case you were wondering.)

Okay, what's the deal? We need to see this growing baby. You should post a family pic.
