I had often wondered when I would feel them move in my tummy and what it would feel like. I had waited for a lifetime to find out.
When I was pregnant I worried the whole time.
I had seen the scans, there was definitely two-somethings in there, but I couldn’t feel them. It was odd and unsettling.
How could my body be creating life and yet I couldn’t feel them.
I am in bed. Cosy. Happy. Relaxed.
I startled; what was that?
Did I imagine it?
There it is again.
Like someone running a finger along the inside of my stomach.
Strange, magical, wonderful… nothing else mattered…
That was the start, I could soon visibly see my stomach move as four feet kicked out from my bump.
It made every ache and pain worth it, as I watched my HELLP babies grow inside of me.
I didn’t know it as I lay there in the comfort of my own bed but we had a hell of a journey coming up…
