Baby Anatomy


A few weeks ago, I did a comic about what early baby kicks feel like. Later baby kicks feel much more like actual kicks. But their punches feel like kicks, too. And so do…whatever else it is he’s doing in there. Elbows? Knees? I don’t know.

I had a sonogram in mid-June, and in the morning, before I went in, I felt a bump in my stomach that I swore was his head. All day I spent loving stroking his little noggin, until the appointment time arrived. It was there they confirmed that it was actually his tushie I’d been petting all day. So I have no clue what’s going on in there.
