There now follows a transcript of a short conversation with my husband held on the day I first felt the baby move (at the end of May, week 23 if you’re interested).

Me: I think I might have felt the baby move today! A few people have told me to watch out for a feeling like butterflies and I had a very fleeting sensation like that at work a couple of times… but I could be imagining it cause I’m thinking about it a lot.

Him: I’ve never had butterflies.

Me [surprised, as he performs regularly and is a somewhat anxious person]: you must have? It’s that feeling you get in your tummy when you’re nervous or excited, sort of a fluttery feeling?

Him: no, I just fart.
