So here’s a little bump update of our ‘Baby Coco’ at 15 weeks – we’re calling bump Coco as we’re not finding out the gender, and it sounds a lot nicer than calling bump ‘its’ haha! There’s a back story about how we go to Coco, but I won’t go into that.
Coco’s popped a little bit! On the 11th May, 1 day before I took this photo, I felt Coco’s first movements which was pretty amazing.
Mr A & I were sitting on the couch, I was resting my hand on my belly and then all of a sudden it felt like a bubble popped inside of me.
I’m not going to lie, the first few times I felt it I was thinking, “Do I have gas?!” but then I realised this felt entirely different to anything I’ve ever felt before.
The bubble popping sensation happened 4-5 more times over the course of about 5 minutes and then went away. Part of me was thinking, “Naaaah it’s not Coco, I’m only just over 15 weeks – that’s way too early!” but then I had a little look online to see what others felt, and quite a few mentioned the bubble popping sensation. My best friend also confirmed it was more than likely Coco. Part of me was thinking maybe I just convinced myself that it was Coco, because I wanted to feel some movement so badly, but I felt little butterflies again 2 days ago!!
So far all is going really well. I still have fatigue and some days are better than others, but I’m just thankful for this whole experience. Lots of people like to tell me that the fatigue is just how my life will be forever going forward haha!
I’ve been stitching away on my last Harry Potter Sampler cushion as well and have been trying to do some every night. I honestly CAN’T WAIT until this one is done so I can get onto making some things for Baby Coco! We’ve decided on the nursery colours but haven’t started doing anything in there just yet as we need to move some boxes, and paint the walls .. but I have a few ideas in mind and I just want to get started already – impatient much?!
