physical contact

When I was resting my hand on Emily’s tummy the other day, I felt a hump bobbing up from it. Thinking that it might be some kind of a message, I made a series of gentle taps on Emily’s tummy… which was a string of complex Morse codes to ask for the well being of the inhabitant inside.

But I wasn’t expecting any reply to that, I was just doing it out of boredom’s sake. Then it happened. I felt a couple more bobs from Emily’s tummy after the taps, then it stopped. I tapped a few more times, and it responded with more bobs. This exchange of ‘almost’ physical contact (separated by a layer of epidermis, a layer of placenta membrane, through a molecular volume of amnion fluid and possibly, even a layer of indeterminable thickness of lardy substance – which all only amounted to not more of an inch) went on for quite sometime, before either one of us became too tired and ceased the act.

I think I’ve managed to establish some kind of primitive communication with my unborn daughter. The feeling’s ecstatic. (she’s complaining about the lack of air conditioning inside)
