Some nights, before I sleep, I will spend some time rubbing my tummy and just talking to baby. Some days I just lie in bed and think about how different our lives are gonna be with the addition of our little bub. It is an amazing feeling, and while I always said I didn’t want to have a baby now, there is no regrets. I believe the baby is here for a reason and it has changed my perspective of parenthood.
So last night, we had a tiring evening, went to attend a “sales talk” for almost 2 hours, I sat till my back was aching and my eyes was closing. Well even if I was not pregnant, I couldn’t sit through such talks, I usually shut off after an hour, im a person who cant sit still so I have to walk around or do something else. So the 2 hours yesterday proved to be challenging especially being pregnant, I was starting to feel tired. When we got home, and when I was finally in bed, I spent a while rubbing my tummy, and I was reading my phone, the update from Baby Centre says that “Starting this week, any stomach rumblings you feel may be your baby trying out some acrobatics, since she can now move all her limbs. If you don’t feel anything, it’s nothing to worry about, especially if you’re a first-time mum. If this is your first pregnancy, you’re more likely to feel your baby move between 18 and 20 weeks. Your baby is becoming sensitive to light. Anxious to know whether she’s really a she or actually a he? Your baby’s external genitals are probably developed enough by now that your next scan could make a good guess at the sex.”
Ooh! That got me excited cos indeed I have been feeling this tummy rumblings like im hungry, so I tried to hold my palm against my tummy with some pressure, and OH MY GOD, I felt a slight vibration. I thought I got it wrong, so I tried it again and then I felt it, a small fluttery bubbly push against my belly. Called the hubs in to try and he also placed his palm against my tummy and he felt it! At first he thought it was my heartbeat, but soon he realised it was random and it was not in sync with my heartbeat and breathing. So it was baby moving around! I said “baby baby kick again and ill sing you a song!” and then i felt it again. and so i sang twinkle twinkle little star. and then i tried again and it works! so i sand mary had a little lamb. HAH!
So amazing. There is a baby inside me!
I cant wait for the next visit to Dr Siow. I need to see my baby! And I cant wait to see how much he/she has grown.
We are almost 40% into the pregnancy, I need to cherish these moments before I have baby in my arms. Pregnancy is a happy thing and I wanna remember the good moments more than the bad. After all, a happy mummy makes a happy baby, right?
