One Sided Baby

Does anyone else have exceptionally bizarre thoughts about how there babies will come out when they are pregnant? The night before last I woke up at about 2:30am...Audrey was kicking me like crazy. As I lay there feeling her kick I realized that she has this thing for the right side of my tummy, I mean it is totally, completely the only side I ever feel her moving on. I lay there thinking...hmmm, I wonder why she never goes to the Left side of my tummy, I don't remember any of my other babies ONLY liking one side of my tummy, that is really weird. After about an hour of trying to push her over to the left side of my tummy (with no luck) I started to get paranoid...what if there is something wrong with the left side of my uterus, what if I have a giant tumor that is keeping her strictly prisoner to one side, oh no what if she is paralyzed on one side of her body, or her limbs stopped growing and now she can't reach the other side of my tummy. Needless to say my sick imagination went into overdrive. At about 5:30am, with no sleep and puffy eyes, (by this point I was actually crying because I was positive there was something dreadfully wrong with my baby), I decided to get up and check the computer, I googled every thing I could about fetal movement...I love google. After about an hour of nothing I found something about how near the end of the pregnancy babies often choose one side of there mother's womb that is more "comfy" for them. They put there back to the one side with there head down and you only feel movements on that one side. OH MY GOSH, I WAS SO RELIEVED. I went back to bed and realized what a complete idiot I am. I can't believe I wasted 4 hours of sleep over something so silly. The funny part is since yesterday I have felt Audrey moving on the left side of my tummy a hundred times...I'm sure she was moving over there the whole time and I am just a complete weirdo.

You are totally the most normal pregnant person in the whole world! I always have weird thoughts like that when I am pregnant.
