I’m anxious for our next prenatal appointment and ultrasound next Wednesday! I cannot wait to see how much bigger “Junior” has gotten! I know some people are against too many ultrasounds and still think it may be detrimental to the baby later on, but I LOVE ultrasounds! It’s just so exciting to see that little miracle inside you…moving, kicking, flailing its arms around. It sounds really simple of me, but these days, nothing brings me more joy than knowing that there’s a life growing inside there.
“Junior” has been very active lately. So active, that it’s been really difficult to get to sleep at night! I am starting to recognize patterns in the little one’s activity. When I wake up at 6AM, Junior gives me a few kicks to let me know that he (or she) is awake too. Around 10 or 11AM the kicks start coming again. These ones are more like kung-fu kicks or kickboxing jabs! Later on, around 2 to 3PM I feel lots of movement again. Around supper time (6PM or so) the pokes start. “Junior” is most active around 10 or 11PM…when I want to go to sleep. It’s really funny! Oh, and again at 4AM, which prompts a trip to the loo. I know. TMI!!!
I was talking to my good friend, Gavie’s Gal on the phone the other day and she was telling me that she noticed with her own two babies that they seem to have had the same awake patterns in the womb as when they had when they were out! Wow! If that’s the case, then this kid is going to be awake THAT often??? Ay! Mama mia!
