There is a tadpole in my tum
It keeps me wide awake
And when the midnight munchies come
I must its cravings slake

The tadpole (size of a banana, about - 6 inches long, anyway, not incl. legs) is a swimmer. Not as lively as I remember Linnea being, and it has yet to respond to music in the same way, but then, it's almost two weeks earlier than the time Linnea got rhythm, so that's not proof it's a different person yet.

It moves differently though. Fewer long slow movements, more series-es of jerky kicks and periods of stillness.

Linnea likes my tummy; she talks to it, says "Baby i Mummy tummy; nife a fat!" and strokes it. One day recently she tucked her head under my shirt as I sat on the armchair and listened to my tummy for ages. She said she was listening to the baby, but I rather suspect what she actually heard was shepherd's pie (with carrots and peas) and soya ice-cream.

I fele very very tired, and my sinuses are clearly pregnant, but I'm in general very well. I expect to feel a lot better as the spring becomes more than half-sprung.

Aside from the extreme tiredness, I really loved being pregnant, and often felt totally *fabulous*. Very healthy and alive and luscious and blooming and all that. I think I got very lucky.

Kate loved looking at "tiny baby in mummy's tummy" ie my bump. My favourite bump photo is of her kissing it :)Mus upload it to flickr.

Hope you are sleeping now.

I still remember being 4 and sitting at a railway station with Mum, with my head on her bump, talking to my baby and listening. I know now that I was listening to her tummy rumbling and her gut, but at the age of 4 it was my baby bouncing at me.

Goodness i'm broody now!!!

That so reminded me of Suzanne. She used to gently rub my belly to make Trish kick her hand. She also used to sing nursery ryhmes to her as well.

i really hope you are enjoying this time as you blink and it is over, the good thing is that having two toddlers is also just as fun and fulfilling.
