With my uncle passing away suddenly and being occupied with the house build process, I haven’t had much time to think much about my pregnancy this week. I did manage to buy the above bassinet though. It ain’t fancy, but it had good reviews for safety compared to the Mother Choice bassinet that I originally planned to purchase. I also like how it has wheels so I can move Cashew around with minimal interruption.
I’m going to get something to decorate it though as otherwise it looks too much like a shopping trolley! I’m currently liking the Ikea bed canopy but I’ll wait to see what the bassinet looks like first to make sure it will suit.
I am now 31 weeks and I’m feeling every punch, kick and movement. It’s like Cashew is reminding me that she is around and to not forget about her. It forces me to pause and reflect at the miracle that there is a life flourishing inside of me. It’s hard to explain what the movements feel like to people who have never been pregnant, but to me at the moment, it feels like a wiggle, wobble, and pop in your belly. It’s the most reassuring feeling knowing that your baby is moving and an instant bond and connection is formed. And knowing that there is a baby inside you that moves to your emotions is like having a constant companion.
Here is a link to how I felt about baby movements last time I was pregnant.
I’ve been asked if this would be my last pregnancy but in honestly I have no idea. I’m not treating it like my last, but like all things it depends on our circumstances.
Have you ever been pregnant thinking that you will never get pregnant again?
