Baby turns 18 weeks yesterday and I almost forgot to update this blog. Twitter reminded me, sorry baby.
I still owe this blog an ultrasound picture of baby’s gender. so many things I can’t do without having my own laptop, its frustrating. Lucky enough that I can update wordpress using my blackberry, or else there won’t be updates and nooo… I don’t want that.
Anyway, at 18 weeks, I am well and baby has started kicking! Although it felt more like my stomach growling at first it got more intense the past few days. It felt like a tiny push or a fingers running through my tummy. Ow, so cute. But funny thing is, baby only kick when I am either feeling down or when I’m doing something vigorous. I guess he doesn’t want to ‘spoil’ it when I’m happy. But your kicks are making me happy, baby! I want more.
Excited for the detailed scan on 19th may, where I’d get to see baby again. I want to know if baby is growing healthily and if it is at a good weight. My tummy seems to be growing so fast lately, I look like I am already 7 months pregnant! It scares me a little. What if baby is too big? Or would it be better for baby to be big than to be small? I don’t want to have to induce labour because he is growing too big. I want him to come out whenever he is ready. I guess I’ll find out during the next check up.
Tummy is still small with a little bump (pic taken on 26th May)
I don;t look pregnant. Soon, I hope.
Anyway, I still don’t think that I am doing enough for baby. Last week was crazy and I’m glad its over. This week I promised baby I would spend as much time as I can talking and reading to him. Well, I hate empty promises and so I tried to deliver it as much as I can. Past few days wasn’t easy, but I forced myself to talk to baby and explain to him my daily situation. I hope he understands.
Ok, I need to iron sf’s clothes now. Till my next update.
