the babies know

I totally believe the babies know what is going on outside of their comfy little womb. They can sense my emotions and react to it. I had thought about it for a while just wondering if they could, but I got an answer that blew my mind a little over a week ago.

The day before Purcey passed, the Hubby and I were watching him in pain and made the decision to help him pass peacefully. It was the most difficult decision we ever had to make and was very upsetting. That day the Hubby and I spent a lot of time just cuddling together and taking care of Purcey. We were both pretty upset.

While we were in bed watching a movie, I felt a real kick for the first time! I quickly put my had on my belly and felt it again from the outside too! Then, I grabbed the Hubby's hand and put it on my belly. He had to wait for a bit, but he ended up getting the biggest kick yet! I actually felt the really hard kick against his hand. His eyes got huge, his face lit up and he kept saying things like "WOW that is crazy and so cool!" Up until then I had only been feeling the babies stretching out. Slow steady pressure, no sharp movements.

I really think they knew how upset we were and wanted to remind us they were there for us. Maybe they were saying a little goodbye to Purcey. All I know is it blew my mind. They gave us something we didn't even know we needed right when we needed it. Just like Purcey knew I was pregnant, I think the babies will always know Purcey. Subconsciously they will always know him by the warmth and pressure of him "keeping them warm"* and the vibration and sound of his purring through my belly.

*The Hubby always told Purcey to lay on me and "keep the babies warm".

"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." 



  1. Aw, your babies are so sweet already. <3

  2. I LOVE that song. I didn't comment on your Purcey post, but I definitely teared up reading it. I'm so sorry for the loss of your pet. I can't imagine losing our baby (6 year old Boxer pup) and my heart breaks for you in making that difficult decision. Enjoy the movement--so far that's my favorite part of being prego!

  3. I think you are right, you are growing a couple of smart cookies in there.

  4. Your "every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end" reminds me of "in order to create one must first destroy". It is true because we must destroy the perfectly formed ova's wall and let in the sperm in order to create new life.

    On the Purcey note, I'm sure he will always be watching over you and the babies.

  5. Aw, what perfect timing :D

    I do think the babies know what's going on outside to some extent. It was hard for my husband to feel the kicks because whenever he would put his hand on my belly they would stop kicking, like they would calm down.

  6. We had a bird during my pregnancy. He was very interested in my stomach and I always knew that he some how sensed that I was pregnant, even before I started showing. After Cedric was born I think he had this connection to Bugsy (the bird) He would track him and react to his sounds. Bugsy would sing to him whenever he would get fussy.

    Unfortunately,.. my now ex husband got angry with me and killed him, so he is no longer with us. :C

  7. Animals and children do have something special and they are connected. I believe through their innocents.

    With death brings the promise of new life.

    I am sorry though esp with the holidays here. I had to comment twice. It is just such a touching and hard thing

  8. So so sorry about your cat. Sometimes there is nothing worse than saying goodbye to an animal. Amazing story about your babies though. Thinking of you and hope your babies continue to provide you with comfort...

  9. So sorry to hear about Purcey. Thanks for stopping by to check in and feel free to follow me on my other blog. Congrats on the pregnancy!!! So excited for you!
