I can feel her moving

A ohoto from a recent maternity photo shoot

It’s an odd experience to lay your hand on your wife’s ‘baby bump’ belly and feel your daughter moving around under the skin.

I like it. I can’t explain why. Maybe it’s got something to do with becoming a father.

My wife has gotten somewhat used to it, except for when she’s trying to get to sleep. And then it’s just uncomfortable and frustrating.

But for me, I’m not used to it. It’s a ‘novelty’ that I’m looking forward to becoming real, where the movement is under my hand instead of under my wife’s skin.

Sometimes when we’re sitting together watching something on Netflix, or whatever, and my arm is resting against my wife’s belly, I can feel her moving. And sometimes it feels like she’s moving to be close to the heat of my hand, as it feels like she’s purposefully pressing against where my hand is resting.

I don’t know if that’s true, but it sounds good, so I’ll stick with that.

Less than two weeks to go now.

There’s going to be photos in the future, as there probably is by every parent taking photos of every new child that comes into the world. If you’re on Instagram and that kind of thing interests you, you can follow me at www.instagram.com/alanhphotos. It would be really cool if you wanted to be part of that.
