@SoonToBee2013:  oh my god! I didn’t know babies moved that much in the womb. What did it feel like for you?

@SoonToBee2013:  Honestly that freaks me out just a bit. I know that amnios have a risk but the fact that your baby is not only reacting to it but grabbing for it, gah! Hoping your results are perfect. 🙂

Wow! That is an INCREDIBLE video!

(And I was also pretty bummed out when I found out I was having a girl, and not a boy like I thought! But it went away in about a week)

@SoonToBee2013:  Just read your reply – glad to hear it wasn’t that bad!  I’m debating whether or not I’ll have an amnio too, although I’m a few years away from having kids. 🙂  Also, if you do have a girl, imagine how cute it would be to watch your husband with her! 

By the way, how did you meet your hubs?  I lived in Spain for a while wondering if I’d meet a fubolista and never did, LOL.  Then I came home to Canada and ended up with an engineer (who’s also a Serb!). 🙂

Oh my goodness this has completely shattered my made-up and completely unfounded thought that babies move like sloths in the womb.

I am less creeped out by the needle and more spooked by the baby’s karate/praying mantis speed and agility!

how cool! my mom said the same thing happend when she had an amnio done with my sister, but it was back in the 80’s and they didn’t have video then like we do now. she said she always wished she could have videotaped it. hope the testing goes well!

@SoonToBee2013:  Good call.  I’d test too, if I were in your situation. 🙂  I can understand wanting a mini version of the husband though!  😀

I’ve never been to Serbia and SO doesn’t want to go, so…boo. 🙁  But I hope to convince him one day.

Good luck on the test results – I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you guys! 🙂
