IT is hard to admit but Mrs Reggie has been kicked around in the past few weeks of pregnancy.
Before anybody goes ringing the cops or suggesting she take out an AVO, let me clarify that she’s being kicked from the inside.
This baby is an active child.
It must be an odd feeling. The nearest I could relate it to would be having incredibly bad gas or some severe indigestion. It’s probably not like either of these.
You wouldn’t think there would be that much room within a womb to change positions.
The little tiger has taken a liking to “sitting high”. From what’s been described to me, it sounds like someone following you around all day poking a broom handle into your upper ribs.
That sounds about as much fun as tax legislation.
All this movement has us a bit nervous- are we ready to look after a pulsing ball of energy, 24 hours a day?
Perhaps we aren’t looking long term. With so much kicking, jabbing and stretching going on inside, this kid could be the next sporting superstar.
If this is the case, we’ll be gently nudging it towards tennis or golf. (Mrs Reggie says it is too soon to be seeking out a Nike or Reebok sponsorship.)
Whatever this little demon is within her, it’s giving her some curry.
Apparently our sleeping pattern is not necessarily its sleeping pattern. It seems to think that 9.30pm is the ideal time to do half a dozen rounds of shadow boxing.
There’s not a lot that can be done about it. Mrs Reggie does some gentle twisting, or push-up style things in the hope of “dislodging” the creature.
Sometimes it takes the hint, other times it fights back, digging its heels in (possibly quite literally.)
I’d better up the fitness regime just in case.
