Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share your own in the comments or even join in with the link up if you are a blogger. (You can find the details at the bottom of this post.) It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad. It will be nice to look back on these posts in the future too!
This week I have chosen the word Rumbles
If you’ve been keeping up with my pregnancy progress you will know that I’ve been feeling little rumbles in my tummy. At first I thought it was maybe just a bit of trapped wind (sorry) but I’m almost certain that it’s movement from the baby now. They’ve been getting stronger this week. Especially since I went for my 20 week scan.
Although I was hoping to feel a bit more from the baby by now, I’m not surprised the movements are only small. When I went for my last scan the sonographer was having a tough time getting a good look at the baby. They were curled up, face squashed into the placenta and looking far too comfy. In the end I had to stand up and do jumping jacks. The baby moved…a little. Enough to finish all of the health checks at lease. Looks like they’ll be a sleepy soul like their Mum!
I can’t lie though, my stomach has also been rumbling a lot because of hunger. After so many weeks of nausea, my appetite is well and truly back. In full force. Now I understand why people talk about eating for two. I know that you shouldn’t; it’s not needed. Oh my goodness I want to though. Show me a packet of cookies at your own risk. Be aware, you may lose a hand.
Rumbles have been coming from the sky too. The every changing weather has continued this week for most of us and small storms keep popping up. Like the big kid that I am, the sound of thunder appearing in the distance makes me excited. Mike and I are well practised in our storm appreciation now. Maybe it’s lockdown getting to us, or maybe we’re just content with a slower life pace now. Either way, it feels nice and I’m happy.
