Just thought I would share a really unique pregnancy experience I had with wild dolphins on my babymoon. Apparently dolphins have affinity for women who are pregnant... I didn?t know this until my husband and I went swimming/snorkeling for a couple miles across a bay on the Big Island of Hawai?i. While we were swimming, a pod of about 30 spinner dolphins showed up and swam around with us for about an hour. This was such an incredible hour of my life ? swimming with beautiful wild dolphins with a 6-month baby belly!

Since then, Hawai?i locals and friends have said that they weren?t surprised that the dolphins spent so much time with me because I was pregnant, one even called me ?a little dolphin magnet.? It?s fascinating that the dolphins could view the inside of my body through sonar, and perceive the image of our skeletons (both me and the baby), as well as two heartbeats, much like how ultrasounds are used to do the same for humans.

Recently I?ve thought about how cool it is that we?ll be able to tell (and show) our baby girl that she swam with wild dolphins before she was born!
