phantoms of the past

I get phantom kicks sometimes. Must just be gas, or digestion, but whenever it’s in that one little spot, it’s astonishingly similar to when Avalon was moving around. It never fails to startle me, and then flood me with bittersweet memories.

The last few days I’ve been peeing a lot more, and having more gas in general. This, of course, reminds me of when I was pregnant. It’s too soon (like, scientifically definitely too soon) for me to be having any pregnancy symptoms if my last insem worked, so I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m trying to drink more water. Seriously, I’ve been having to get up twice in the night to pee (and I am very, very tired from working every day). It’s weird and just brings me back to the early days of my pregnancy when every little symptom was so exciting and such an adventure.

  1. After my daughter was born I got (get) those kicks ALL the time. I NEVER felt them before I was pregnant, but seriously I felt her “move all the time” post hysterectomy.
