Another milestone has been hit!
I was told by my midwife that I need to start doing Fetal Kick Counts. She said to avoid counting hiccups.
Hiccups? Really? My baby will get hiccups?
Living blissfully in doubt, I continued on my merry way.
Last night in bed as Sam was snoring off, I was following my usual routine: Pray for us, stare at the wall, imagine raising a little kid, figuring out a plan for the next day, stare at the wall.
I had been feeling her kick for the past few minutes and didn’t think a thing of it as she is very active at night.
Then I realized that her kicks were very rhythmic. I decided one of two things:
Either my daughter inside me is the next drumming prodigy and I should consider purchasing a drum set for the birth….
She has hiccups.
I started drumming back to her. Her drumming kept steady and strong.
Dreams of grandeur played through my head of a 1 year old child star touring the globe whilst playing “Wipeout” and flashing a toothy mouth.
World, meet my child.
Naw. Seriously though… It was quite humorous to experience hiccups from the inside!
Something I’ve learned by being pregnant:
It is always odd to feel kicks from the inside.
(It is always odd to feel kicks from the outside too)
Have a great day!
