I am an anxious mum.
Everyday (and sometimes even at night), I try to check whether my baby kicks or not.
Doctor said to calculate 10 kicks every 12 hours. I had calculated kicks, rolls and turns since I have not being able to distinguish the difference between those at all...
Anyway, had several scares today.
Woke up in the middle of the night, asking myself whether the baby is ok. And thank God, the little guy kicks a bit, just to let his anxious mum knows that he is well.
This afternoon, had another scare when I suddenly realized that the last time baby rolled over (that I noticed) was at 8 am. I was so busy with my reformatted laptop that I had not noticed whether the baby kicked at all. Waiting for the baby to woke up is the longest half hour of my life...and at last, baby did rolled over and gave a few kicks just to calm me down. Still shaking tho....
Alhamdulillah, the little guy is cool like his father. If also anxious like me, teruk lah.
So, dear son, move a lot please. I really don't care abt the stomach ache, the stretched skin or even the throbbing pain when you move as long as those signifies that you are alive and well.
Really, I am a very, very anxious mum.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
