We’ve been seeing our consultant every 2 weeks for scans and monitoring, but now I’m past 24 weeks, we’ll only be seeing her every 4 weeks until we feel comfortable enough not to have anymore. After eight scans I’ll miss not seeing our little one so often. Our consultant has treated us to a 4D scan on three occasions now, which has been a magical experience. It is so amazing to see all the facial features so clearly, and watch our baby yawning and waving their little hands about.
I’ve been feeling kicks from 17 weeks but they’re getting stronger each week – enough to knock things off my tummy if I’m resting anything there! Sometimes little bubba has a very energetic kicking session, other times it’s slow rolls and stretches which is a more strange sensation. Lately I’ve been enjoying playing music to the baby, after I bought Hayley Westenra’s Hushabye album a few weeks ago. The first few times I played it were emotional as I thought of William and Noah and how I never got to sing lullabies to them, but they’re beautiful songs and I love listening to them. It would be a very soothing selection to play during feeds and before bedtime.
