The Alien Moves…


Another throwback to about a year ago when I was pregnant with my daughter.

I was sitting on the couch and Troy (my son) was talking about random things.  I noticed that every time he said something, the baby in my tummy moved.  Sometimes it was a punch, other times it was a roll.  But, every time he spoke, she moved.

“Troy come over here,”  I said.

“Why?”  he asked, but headed over anyway.

“Just come here and sit down.”

He dropped onto the couch next to me.

“Now say something,”  I demanded.


“Just look at my tummy and say something.”

He looked at my tummy, “Why?  What do you want me to….AHHHH what the…”

He saw Lorelai move – one of her huge kicks.  It’s like an alien pushing from inside, trying to get out.


He continued screaming, “Oh, my God!  Oh, my God!”

I couldn’t help but crack up.  I guess he just wasn’t ready for it….

One thought on “The Alien Moves…”

  1. Ha! Guess she liked his voice! All the squirms, kicks, punches, and rolls were my favorite part of pregnancy. So cool to feel from the inside and see on the outside! I remember when you could clearly make out a foot! And I have video of my belly with lots of crazy moves going on with both kids. Love watching it now.
