Can you see your pulse in your belly?
My keen skills of "doing homework," and "delving through research" have yielded the observation that when I'm lying down, I can see my pulse in my belly. I never noticed this before.

Respond. It will delay the inevitable: my actual productivity.

3. I'm skinnyish.
Maybe I just couldn't see it when I was heavier, and that's why I never noticed it.
Can't see it near my ankle bone, though!

5. I can't usually see it....
But sometimes if I lie down on my stomach after I eat, I can *feel* it there.

Briarius has crazy neck veins... his whole neck moves with his pulse! :)

6. Lol!
I get creeped out by feeling the pulse in my neck, for some reason.
I could never be an EMT; I'm afraid of blood even when it's inside the body!
:P

8. Yes I can.
I discovered it the same way: laying down reading, say, photocopied article resting below ribcage and noticing it bounce while I tried to read.

Now get back to studying.

12. It may or may not be indicative of anything enviable.
If it's a matter of thinness; well, I'm nasty thin right now, so nothing to envy there.

14. No, you're not.

You look nice.

17. Lol! And just as I read that,
my husband walked in the room, handed me a blizzard and said, "here- this'll fatten you up a little bit" (as he seems to be rather fond of saying.)

13. There's something happening, but it's not my pulse.
It's just the fat jiggling.

15. It may be, as I noted in response to another poster,
that you have a "jiggly pulse."

Optical illusions abound, after all!
