Dear Bump

Your style of movement was really varied. When I tried to sleep at night, you'd get active, particulary if I was sleeping too much on my belly. Because you were sitting the wrong way up in my tummy, I felt your head a lot (on my left hand side) and your feet would kick me on the right hand side. I loved the fact that just after I woke up, you seemed to wake up and do a few stretches. But sometimes it felt as though you were doing early morning aerobics in there, to wake up. I loved feeling you move.

I first felt you move at week 20 and it just felt like little deep pops. Over time, the movements got stronger, more regular and I could see a pattern. Near the end, it felt as though you were trying to burrow your way out with your head!

good night!
love your mum-to-be xxx
