I had a very active child in the womb; he is still very active now. Always running, always climbing and always jumping! I have no idea how he had so much energy, considering that I was suffering from HG (see my post on HG here).
Mr nicknamed the baby Chuck Norris, because you could see him kicking on the surface of my stomach.
What it felt like inside my womb.
He loves music! He would kick as soon as he would hear any beat (too bad for me when we attended a music festival that we had booked months in advance). It was the worst when Mr and I attended a dance performance with African drums providing the beat. Our dear friend and colleague passed away and the little one was kicking away at the funeral as soon as we started singing the hymns.
Another rare picture inside my womb.
We had to switch off the radio towards the end of my pregnancy, because his kicking would be so sore and fast. You could see the ripples across my stomach. He would do the same thing at the mall, which caused many people to stare at my belly as he moved from one side to the other.
This energy has translated after birth. He loves music and dancing. He dances all the time. He also loves entertaining people and being the centre of attention.
Did you have a child that kicked constantly? Let me know! I’d love to have a conversation with you.
Love and Blessings,
