Punching Bag & Loving It!

Entering my 6th month of pregnancy presents more than just an increased appetite. The light nudges from Bub those days is now a history. More often than not, I feel like a punching bag or a crowded, action-packed concert venue. His movements these days are impactful, one of its kind and a surprise each time.

Sometimes it’s two quick punches akin to how we feel when our car goes through a road bump. Occasionally, it feels and looks like he’s doing a Mexican wave inside. And at times, I feel like as if he’s digging me from inside out with his fingers. Once, his movements were so prominent I felt him migrating steadily from my lower abdomen to upper abdomen, just like a lift escalating. My imagination pictured him climbing up my womb by flapping his arms and legs like a butterfly.

Each sensation from the kick, punches, flutters and jolts never failed to make me smile every time. It’s strangely astonishing yet hilarious. If only there’s a miniature CCTV that can be implanted safely inside the womb to monitor babies’ behaviour and activities, isn’t that wonderful?

      Do hiccups feel like slow, consistent nudges that last for 30 seconds to 1 minute? I felt that thrice already but wasn’t sure if that’s hiccups :))

  1. It’s more like consistent thumping. Mine goes longer than a minute. My OB says that is a good sign of development. I’ve been feeling him hiccups since months ago, and now that he is bigger, it’s getting quite uncomfortable. Feels like bubbles popping inside me. He hiccups a few times a day 🙂
