Over the last 4 months, this fetus has made it crystal clear to me that it is opposed to meetings. It is fine with teaching, likes research, accepts service, but really really hates meetings.

First, it would make me nauseous and dizzy during every meeting and at no other time. And now that it has learned to flutter, it is fluttering. The fluttering is a preview of how it will kick me if I take it to meetings once it’s ready to kick.

And it’s crafty, too. It knows that I find these flutters very creepy. They make me feel like a humanย aquarium.

It is extremely weird to know that there is something growing inside you that will one day learn to roll its eyes and say, “Mama, you just don’t get this.”

  1. I completely understand. My fetus is also anti-meeting and I’m not even pregnant! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Our first child did that, and when my wife asked me to feel, she would stop doing it. We called her Perverse. And now, more than 30 years later, she’s still perverse, sometimes.
