When I was pregnant with my daughter, I counted down the days to each and every sonogram. I wanted reassurance that she was growing and healthy, and curious to see just what she was doing in there. I'll never forget seeing her do what I assumed to be a fist pump at my 12 week scan, or the way she leisurely swung her legs back and forth at 15 weeks. If you're wondering, "what does my baby do all day inside me?" you'll be glad to know that your baby is probably being just as adorable as mine was.
It's fascinating to realize the wiggling, flipping, and exploring your baby is doing in the womb long before you can actually feel it. My daughter's 12-week fist pump blew my mind precisely because I had absolutely no idea she was doing it. It took another month or so until I could feel those punches and kicks, and then I felt them at all hours. My daughter seemed to be the most active whenever I tried to lay down and sleep, maybe because she got bored without me moving around and making noise. I can't really blame her— it must get a little dull inside those cramped quarters.
