bump: autumn dreaming

As hard as I tried I just couldn't find a leaf as big as the belly. This week baby grew beyond expectations. When I was growing Che my belly was chubby and squishy. This belly right now is the exact opposite: a hard, round, heavy ball with rather persistent whole-body stretches from the little one inside. I regularly feel a foot pressing onto me and I tickle it back. 32 weeks now.


I woke with a sore throat this morning so tomorrow will include a sleep in, vegie soup, nettle tea, lemon water and lots of rest. We as a family are feeling so grateful for our health and wellbeing this weekend. Daniel's mum was driving Che around this morning when all-of-a-sudden the breaks failed on her car. Thankfully, oh so thankfully, she was going slow and no-one was hurt. Tonight I held him a little tighter and said a few extra 'i love yous' while lying next to him as he fell to sleep.

I just cannot articulate how precious my children are to me. All you mothers understand, I know you do. x

  9. Thank goodness the rewards of motherhood are worth all the scarey moments a trillion times over! I hope Daniel's mum is ok- would be such a shock to think what could have happened. You and your belly-fruit look beautiful. I'm sure she/he sticks the foot out purely for the purpose of getting a delightful tickle from mumma! xxx
